Michael Douglas Seduced At 16 By Mom's Friends

Michael Douglas opens up to Elle about his early adventures in love in an interview that makes no mention of son Cameron's recent imprisonment for meth trafficking. Here are some excerpts:

On a youthful 'Mrs. Robinson' scenario:

"There were a couple friends of my mother's when I was 16 and they were 30. I wouldn't want to get any of them in trouble, but they're probably all dead by now."

On bringing women home to his father, Kirk:

"I wouldn't even dare bring one home with him around. Look, he's been happily married for 55 years, so I don't want to get into this in great depth, but he's always been an outrageous flirt, and he takes no prisoners. In the years before I met Catherine, there were a couple ladies who met him to whom he gave his most impressive showing. But that's healthy."

On a jilted ex-lover:
"I remember one woman who'd been pursuing me, and I'd gone back home and was in bed with another lady. At an unbelievably inopportune moment, she popped out of the closet. Let's just say that took care of the rest of the night."
