Kirk Douglas, b.December 9, 1916 in Amsterdam, New York
also known as Issur Danielovitch Demsky
A Kirk Douglas quote: ‘It isn’t a manly profession. It’s a childish profession. You couldn’t be a complete, grown-up adult and be an actor . . . I mean, if I were a sophisticated adult, how could I say, «Here I am, fighting evil, represented by Yul Brynner»? You have to have a childish part of you! It’s true! You know, I watch as my kids have grown up, I’ve watched, them, you know. Children are natural actors; they pretend they’re cops and robbers, and I think all actors retain a certain amount of that within themselves. They have to, or they can’t function as actors. And that’s why they become self-deprecating. They think, well, it’s not‘
