Happy 100th Birthday! Kirk Douglas’s Wife Joins Him In The Centennial Club
Kirk Douglas’ wife has just joined him in a very exclusive club. On Tuesday, April 23, Anne Buydens turned 100 years old. Kirk himself turned 102 in December. Check out how they keep their love young in this RadarOnline.com gallery.
Kirk and Anne have been married for 64 years.
The lovebirds are often spotted on dates together around their sunny neighborhood — accompanied by their personal assistants.
Kirk first met Anne, and asked her for a date, in 1953. She said no.
Surprised by her response, Kirk hired Anne to be his publicist. Working together, the two eventually found love.
Kirk and Anne married on May 29, 1954, and had two children, but Kirk was admittedly not always a faithful husband.
In the couple’s joint memoir, Kirk and Anne, the famous actor shared that he had affairs with actresses like Rita Hayworth, Patricia Neal, and Joan Crawford’s daughter, Christina Crawford.
“Kirk never tried to hide his dalliances from me,” Anne said in the book. “As a European, I understood it was unrealistic to expect total fidelity in a marriage.”
Kirk is a father to two more kids, including actor Michael Douglas, 74, from his marriage to Diana Douglas.
