Cameron Douglas, 42, has been open about his struggles growing up and how he turned his life around — and he’s thankful for the support from father Michael Douglas, 76, and step-mom Catherine Zeta-Jones, 51. “With Catherine, it’s always been fantastic and with my dad it’s always pretty good too,” Cameron told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY during an Instagram Live on April 12, while also discussing his work with the Movember Family Man. The campaign equips men with the right tools while helping them live healthier and happier lives. “We definitely butt heads and certainly there were times in the past we may not spend much time together, but these days, things are lovely.”

It’s been a tough road for the The Runner actor and father of two who has worked hard to get to a better place in his own life. After being arrested a handful of times for possession of drugs, he served seven years in prison, two in a halfway house, and takes accountability for his struggles despite growing up in his famous family. “My family had the best intentions,” Cameron said. “And other than that, as my father used to say when I was younger, ‘Cameron, there’s good things about being a Douglas and there’s some not some good things but you hope the good things outweigh the negative things,’ and that’s certainly been the case in my life. I’ve been through some difficult times but they’ve all been self inflicted for sure.”
