The Hollywood icon, who died Feb. 5 at 103, left the bulk of his $61 million fortune to the Douglas Foundation — snubbing thespian son Michael Douglas, the Mirror reported Sunday.
Douglas, known for classic flicks like “Spartacus” and “Ace in the Hole,” left the bulk of his money to his charity, which benefits Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, The Kirk and Anne Douglas Childhood Center, and a St. Lawrence University scholarship for underprivileged students, among others.
It is unclear who gets the remaining money — about $10 million — but Douglas is survived by his second wife, Anne, and his three sons, Joel, Peter, and Michael, the Mirror said.
Not that his most famous offspring needs the cash — the “Wall Street” star is worth about $300 million in his own right, according to the Mirror.
And it was Michael Douglas — along with his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones — who praised his father’s charitable ways when he announced his death earlier in the month.
“Kirk’s life was well-lived, and he leaves a legacy in film that will endure for generations to come and a history as a renowned philanthropist who worked to aid the public and bring peace to the planet,” Michael Douglas said in a statement at the time
