OHMYGOSSIP — Michael Douglas must take off his pants and “whip” him if Catherine Zeta-Jones beats him at golf.
The ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ actor confirmed he and his wife still had a bet going when they played their favorite game, but he insisted he didn’t lose very often.
When asked if they still had the bet, as previously revealed by Catherine, Michael told the Guardian newspaper: “The rules are I have to take it out if I don’t hit it past the tees ladies, which I manage most of the time.
“But there have been times when we play alone and we have to give it a little show because we are competitive. But only when I play with my wife.
Meanwhile, the 78-year-old actor is considering stipulating in his will that all rights to his image be left to his family as he fears an avatar of him will end up in the movies and he would like to retain an element of control. .
Discussing whether he would sell his digital image so he could continue acting in films after his death, he said: ‘Funny you mention that. You are reaching an age where you start to think about your will and your estate.
“Now I think I’m also going to have to authorize my name and image so that the rights go to my family rather than the metaverse. I see what the AI is doing with images with text.
“It’s only a matter of time before you can recreate any dead person at any age with voice and mannerisms, so I want to have some control.”
Michael – who has Cameron, 44, with ex-wife Diandra and Dylan, 22, and Carys, 19, with Catherine – also admitted that one of the reasons he signed on to play Hank Pym in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was to appeal to a younger generation.
He said: “That was one of the reasons for doing ‘Ant-Man’, other than the fact that I had never done a green screen type film. Most of my films have been rated R – for adults only.
“I love seeing these kids tugging at my jacket and saying, ‘Hank Pym! The ant Man!’ That’s as close to immortality as an actor can get.
Catherine first revealed the unusual package in 2016.
She said: “If he dodges a shot, he has to pull his pants down. It’s not just my husband, it’s any man I play.
“There was a problem with the paparazzi so I made it go into the bushes. A deal is a deal.
