Michael DouglasHe’s played everything from a Wall Street vulture to the president, but these days Michael Douglas is focusing on his favorite role father and husband.

“I’ve learned to kick back and be a family man,” he says. “Since I married Catherine (Zeta-Jones), we’ve been raising a new family. I’m enjoying it immensely. And my priorities have changed enormously.”

Since getting married in 2000, the two have had a son and daughter.

Douglas was in Savannah to accept a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Savannah Film Festival.

The award made him “feel like I need to check with my doctor and see if everything’s OK,” the 63-year-old Academy Award winner joked in an interview Saturday with the Savannah Morning-News.

“I’m slowing down, but I’m not ready to call it quits yet,” he said.

Douglas, a steady hitmaker in the 1980s and ’90s with “Fatal Attraction,” “Wall Street” and “Basic Instinct,” has delivered some box-office duds lately: Secret Service thriller “The Sentinel” the action comedy “The In-Laws” and the domestic drama “It Runs in the Family,” which co-stars his parents, Kirk and Diana Douglas, and his grown son, Cameron.

His most recent role was a lovable kook sniffing after mythical Spanish treasure in “King of California.”
