"Michael Douglas is what legends are made of. He joins his legendary actor/father Kirk Douglas whose star and Michael's will forever shine just a few feet from one another," Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez said in a statement.
"We have been patiently waiting for Michael Douglas to unveil his stellar award since he was selected in 2003 and are so excited to finally honor this Hollywood royal with a star on our historic Hollywood Walk of Fame," she added.
"[The] love of my life is here," the actor said, according to People. "I'm talking about Catherine. I'm grateful for your support and your love and your patience."
"My dad is here. In a month, Kirk will be 102 years old!" he added. "It means so much to me, Dad, that you're here today. Thank you for your advice, inspiration and I'll say it simply and with all my heart: I'm so proud to be your son."
