Prior to social media, the actor noted, “You were able to have quiet gatherings together without everyone knowing.”

“You don't have that kind of freedom as before,” he remarked.

Elsewhere in the interview, the Hollywood star also put emphasis on the importance of family.

Talking about his wife Catherine Zeta Jones, Douglas added, “Catherine, my wife has a very tight and close relationship with her family. We're close. I have an older son from my first marriage and we're close.”
