Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones allowed their children, Dylan and Carys, to make a rare public appearance with them last week. The family gathered to witness Douglas receive the $1 million Genesis Prize -- dubbed the “Jewish Nobel Prize.” The “Ant Man” star received the award from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, according to Yahoo!
Douglas, 70, was proud to be accompanied by his wife and offspring. “Arriving at tonight's Genesis Prize Award Ceremony with my family by my side,” he wrote on Facebook with another photo from the event. Dylan, who will be 15 in August, looked nearly as tall as his parents and wore a lavender shirt and tie to complement his honoree father, who was accessorized in purple. Carys, age 12, resembled her actress mom, with wavy hair styled over one shoulder.
While Dylan and Carys have accompanied their parents to a handful of previous events -- including Zeta-Jones, 45, getting the Commander of the Order of the British Empire at Buckingham Palace in 2011 -- it’s been several years since they have all made an official appearance together, a time period that has included their parents’ brief separation in 2013. Though school just let out, the family is already enjoying their summer vacation, according to mom.
Zeta-Jones, who also posted a photo from the Genesis Prize Awards to congratulate her husband, noted that they were enjoying an “amazing family vacation” in Israel. That involved meeting up with basketball executive Pat Riley in the Old City in Jerusalem.
Things for the Douglas/Zeta-Jones family are good after that hiccup in their marriage. Douglas told the Associated Press that he remains cancer free and his marriage is going strong. The actor said Catherine was wonderful and their kids were with them, and all of them were having a great time.
