Cameron concluded the tribute to the late Hollywood legend by noting how hard it is to move the family forward in his absence.

The Spartacus star, who had been in good health since suffering a stroke in 1996, died almost two months after his birthday.

The actor wrote that he could always count on Kirk to show up for anyone in the family, recalling a story in which he and his wife, Anne, showed up to a club Cameron was DJing at around 12:30 a.m. when the acclaimed actor was in his "late 80s, early 90s".

Michael Douglas publicly announced in January that he was supporting Michael Bloomberg's candidacy, calling him "one of the greatest candidates in the history of our elections".

A second wrote: "RIP Marvellous actor!"

Kirk was one of the most famous American leading men of the mid-20th century remembered for his dimpled chin, chiseled features, and virile Hollywood roles.

Meanwhile, Michael confirmed his father's death last week, as he expressed his "sadness" at the news in a lengthy statement.

The actor shared various pictures of Kirk with his many family members and a picture of him in his younger years.

"However to me and my brothers Joel and Peter he was merely Dad, to Catherine, an exquisite father-in-law, to his grandchildren and nice grandchild their loving grandfather, and to his spouse Anne, an exquisite husband".

He added: "Kirk's life was effectively lived, and he leaves a legacy in movie that can endure for generations to come, and a historical past as a famend philanthropist who labored to assist the general public and convey peace to the planet".

"Let me finish with the phrases I informed him on his final birthday and which is able to all the time stay true". Dad- I love you so much and I am so proud to be your son.

Last week, Zeta-Jones' father-in-law, Kirk Douglas, passed away at the age of 103 on Wednesday, Feb 5.

"To my darling Kirk, I shall love you for the rest of my life", she wrote on Instagram, sharing a black-and-white photo giving Kirk a kiss on the cheek. I miss you already.

"This is desperately sad news".

He is survived by his wife Vanessa, their daughters Natalia, Bianka and Capri and by his parents.
