Hollywood tea party for Kirk Douglas' 100th

Actor Michael Douglas (L) is throwing a Hollywood tea party for his dad, Kirk Douglas' 100th.

Kirk Douglas is set to celebrate in style when he turns 100 on Friday.

Douglas will see in his birthday with a Beverly Hills tea party, hosted by his eldest son Michael and daughter-in-law Catherine Zeta-Jones, with a guest list of 200, according to The London Times.

He also plans to celebrate with a glass of vodka but admits, "My only job is to stay well and rested so I can show up and be charming".

As well as being one of the last actors of Hollywood's Golden Age, Douglas has survived a helicopter crash, a stroke, heart surgery, family tragedy, and battle injuries in World War II.

Happy Birthday, Kirk Douglas: A Hollywood legend turning 100

This Friday, December 9, the American actor will celebrate his 100th birthday. One of the last survivors of Hollywood's golden age, Kirk Douglas was a pioneer of the increasingly prevalent trend for actor-producers.

In the course of a 70-year career in moving pictures, Kirk Douglas became a Hollywood legend. The actor, who was remarked for his distinctive dimpled chin, has played in a vast variety of films (epics, comedies, thrillers, westerns, adventure films), shot by the most prestigious directors of his day. John Huston, Billy Wilder, Vincente Minnelli, Elia Kazan, Howard Hawks, Stanley Kubrick and Brian de Palma all had the privilege of working with him in one or more of their films.

Between 1946 and 2008, he featured in close to 100 films, some of which have become classics of American cinema: notably "Spartacus", "Lust for Life", "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral", "Paths of Glory" and "The Final Countdown." However, in spite of his popularity, Kirk Douglas was never awarded an Oscar, although he was nominated on three occasions: for his role in "Champion" in 1950, "The Bad and the Beautiful" in 1952, and for his performance in the role of painter Vincent Van Gogh in “Lust for Life” in 1957. In 1996, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences finally made up for this oversight by awarding him a lifetime achievement honorary Oscar in recognition of his 50-year career in Hollywood.
