The widow of acting legend Kirk Douglas and the step mother of actor Michael Douglas, has died in Los Angeles.
Anne Douglas married Kirk in 1954.
They met while he was shooting “”Act of Love” in Paris. She was doing publicity for the movie.
Kirk Douglas, who died last year at the age of 103, once said he might not have survived without his wife’s business acumen and finely-honed instincts.
In 2017 the couple published “Kirk and Anne: Letters of Love, Laughter and a Lifetime in Hollywood.”
The Douglas Foundation, which Anne and Kirk co-founded, has donated millions of dollars to a wide range of institutions, from the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to the Motion Picture & Television Fund.
Anne Douglas died at her home in Beverly Hills yesterday at the age of 102.
No cause was released.
