Kirk’s eldest son Michael announced that his father had passed away a few weeks ago when the Basic Instincts star wrote an emotional tribute to his “legendary” father on Instagram.

“It is with great sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today at the age of 103,” he wrote. “He was a legend to the world, an actor from the golden age of movies who lived well into his golden years, a humanitarian worker whose commitment to justice and the reasons he believed set a standard for all of us that we should strive for.

“But to me and my brothers Joel and Peter he was just a father, to Catherine, a wonderful father-in-law, to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, their loving grandfather, and to his wife Anne, a wonderful husband.”

The 75-year-old actor added, “Kirk’s life was well lived and he leaves a legacy in film that will last for generations and a history as a renowned philanthropist who worked to help the public and make peace bring the planet.

“Let me end with the words I told him on his last birthday that will always stay true. Dad: I love you so much and I am so proud to be your son. #KirkDouglas ”
