"What do you say?" Zeta-Jones asked her father-in-law after he received a very warm welcome from the star-studded crowd. "Very good!" he responded.

Zeta-Jones went on to call out that Kirk Douglas was instrumental in ending the infamous Hollywood blacklist, which he was officially recognized for by the Writers Guild of America back in 1991.

"Catherine, you said it all!" Douglas said. "I worked on a speech, but I don't want to say it because I can never follow you!"

Kirk Douglas celebrated his 101st birthday last month surrounded by his family and friends.
