During a rare family outing, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones’s young son said many nice things about them.
During his heartfelt speech to his parents, the child was criticized for his lack of good manners.
Adored dad Douglas is confident that he has raised a respectful and polite son.
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, who have been married for 22 years, appeared publicly with their son Dylan, who is also 22. On February 7, 2023, the family members were seen in Los Angeles for the “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” premiere.
The three were interviewed by Entertainment Tonight at the stated event. When asked about his famous parents’ professions, Dylan was allowed to gush about how much he admires them.

“There’s some friendly competition,” he revealed about their home normality. “It’s great to see both my parents still doing great work, and I’m just happy to be here,” he added.
The child expressed his “proudness” in his mother and father, remarking that they are both excellent parents.
“I’m very proud, they’re great actors, both Academy Award-winning actors, but they’re great parents, and that’s a side that not everyone gets to see, but I get to see every day in and out.”
Dylan spoke warmly about the Hollywood couple, who seemed to be experiencing some emotion as they observed him talk to the reporter and smiled throughout the rest of the interview as they listened to him talk about him. Dylan commended them. Zeta-Jones remarked that it was wonderful to have their son here with them and to hear him talk well about Douglas and her:
“It does feel good. He’s been in college all these years, and now he gets to go out and about with us.”
Why Did Dylan Get Backlash After His Parental Speech?
As Dylan shared some heartfelt thoughts about his parents on social media, he got feedback from followers of those platforms that were not kind. The native of California gave off the appearance of chewing gum during the interview, leaving the interviewees with a bitter taste.

“What the heck is he chewing? Gum? He needs to work on that. For a kid of privilege, he doesn’t have manners,” one person wrote on Facebook.
Another person joined in and shared the same comments, adding that it was about time he figured out how to handle himself in social environments.
“Dylan has to learn manners. His chewing gum here is not the place. He has no respect for his parents or the occasion. He looks spoilt.”
A third person on Facebook told him he was handsome and needed to work on his manners.
“Dylan looks great, but his behavior…he has to learn a lot.”

A fourth individual joked about Douglas and Zeta-Jones needing to ensure that their son “finished eating his dinner first” before bringing him to an event open to the public. A fifth person shared their opinion, saying the pair must have felt ashamed after seeing the clip later.
As this happened, another person commenting on social media stated that Dylan could have avoided doing that during the interview.
“The least he could have done is to stop chewing for the 3 minutes they were being interviewed. Poor representation for the family.”
According to Douglas, his son is “Well-Mannered.”
In October 2010, the family’s dad addressed raising his brood openly and honestly, saying that his priorities changed when they were born. Douglas shared that he is one of those people who urges others to focus on their careers before starting a family.
He said having Zeta-Jones in his life was something he never anticipated. It was because he was happily single after divorcing his first wife, Diandra Luker, with whom he shares a son named Cameron.

The actor from “Basic Instinct” addressed the age difference between himself and Zeta-Jones and stated that their relationship has never been a problem. Moreover, he recognized the effect that his age could have on his children.
“I’m aware that I’m going to be 75 when my son’s 18 and my daughter’s 16.”

When the children were ten and seven, Douglas said he liked waking them up for school and helping them prepare for the day. Every morning, he would begin his day by making their meals, and afterward, he would ask about their day and their friends.
The happy parent remarked that his connection with his kids is solid because they have confidence in each other.
“It is tremendous, unequivocal love with no judgment, and that is the best feeling in the world.”
The father of three also noted that his children had polite manners. “They’re not spoiled or obnoxious. They’re well-mannered, confident, and pretty worldly.”
Douglas said that Dylan was enrolled in a special school and that Dylan “has dyslexia to a degree – it runs in the family, and my brother has it,”
