Michael Douglas’ son thinks his Oscar-winning father makes pancakes for a living

Dylan – Michael’s seven-year-old son with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones – is so used to seeing his dad in the kitchen he doesn’t realise he has a career outside of the home.

Catherine – who also has a five-year-old daughter Carys with Michael – said: “He makes excellent pancakes and he’s pretty good at waffles. Actually one of the kids was in school and they were doing occupations and the teacher said, ‘You have to go home and ask mom and dad what they do for occupations.’

“We were trying to explain to Dylan that we made movies and he went, ‘Hang on a minute! Mom makes movies, you make pancakes!’ So my two-time Oscar-winning husband who has a career of 40 years looks at me and says, ‘Oh! It’s come to that!’ ”

Although Dylan doesn’t regard Michael as an actor, Catherine is keen to star with him in a movie but has ruled out any sex scenes.

She added to Britain’s OK! magazine: “I’d like it – if he wouldn’t be my husband! I think it’s very voyeuristic seeing couples on screen together. It’s like peeping through the keyhole. But there is a script we’re developing that’s set in India where he would play the bad guy.”
