The Ant-Man star Michael Douglas says, he never likes to be compared with father Kirk Douglas, and that he has always felt insecure to follow his father's footsteps.

Michael also revealed that it took a long time for him to develop 'a sense of security' in the field of acting as he always worried he would be brought under comparison to his father Kirk Douglas and his achievements in the field of acting.

"I lacked confidence I would say. It took me a while to have a sense of security." said Michael.

"I mean clearly when you have a father like Kirk, he was a big figure to look up to and think, 'Wow how do you be the man that he is?'" he added.

"But I'm not complaining you know, everybody has got their strengths and weaknesses and you just try to overcome those situations and improve your lot in life." Michael stated.

"I remember the first show I did he came back and he said, 'Michael you were absolutely terrible.' And he was so relieved because he thought, 'I don't have to worry about my son becoming an actor, he was so bad.' Michael recalled.

Douglas also revealed that his son and daughter are also enthusiastic to join family business and they possess keen interest in acting as a career.

"My son and my daughter both want to be in the business. They both want to act and I've told them to be ready for rejection." He concluded.
