Kirk Douglas Receives The Sweetest 101st Birthday Messages

When you turn 101, you are definitely deserving of a great bash, especially if you're a legendary actor, producer and director in Hollywood.

Surrounded by family and friends, Kirk Douglas was able to do just that.

Kirk's son, Michael Douglas, flew in from New York, while his other son Joel, drove in from the desert to be with his father in Beverly Hills on his special day.

Kirk's wife of 63 years, Anne, who is 93-years-old, was there alongside their granddaughter, Kelsey Douglas, and a handful of prominent Hollywood producers and directors.

His cardiologist Dr. P.K. Shah also stopped by to bring the vodka for the one drink that he allows Kirk to have each year.

He even had two special cakes to mark the occasion.

"Family and friends celebrated Kirk's 101st by honoring some of Kirk's greatest performances. There was a sunflower cake recalling Kirk's performance as Vincent Van Gogh in 'Lust for Life,'" Michael captioned his photo.

"A pair of boxing gloves from Dad's first Academy Award nominated performance 'Champion,'" Michael wrote.

The room was filled with a lot of loved ones, but not everyone was able to make it to L.A. to celebrate. Other loved ones, including daughter-in-law Catherine Zeta-Jones, made sure to mark the occasion with some special messages.

While Catherine couldn't attend the festivities at the Douglas home, she made sure to connect with the birthday boy through FaceTime to sing him "Happy Birthday".

She also wished him Happy Birthday on Instagram, captioning her photo "101 today!!!! My darling Pappy on my knee. Happy Birthday to my wonderful, inspirational and loving father in law, Kirk. Love you with all my heart. ❤️#hero"

Kirk's grandsons Cameron and Dylan also couldn't make it to California, but gave a touching tribute to their grandfather on social media.

"Here’s to 101 years of art, inspiration, and philanthropy...still going strong! Happy Birthday Pappy!#Livinglegend 💪" Cameron wrote on Instagram. Cameron is about to make Kirk a great-grandfather with the imminent arrival of a baby girl.

Cameron just spent his 39th birthday with his father, Michael, and he made it clear how important family is to him in his Instagram post.

"Nobody I’d rather spend my Birthday with...I Love you Pop. 🌞#rocksolid," he captioned his photo.

His brother, 17-year-old Dylan, also shared the love he has for his family.

"Happy birthday 101 years and still sexy love you with all my heart Pappy," Dylan wrote on Instagram.

You can tell Kirk is not feeling his age, in the video Dylan posted for his 100th birthday last year.

“One of the things that I find most incredible about dad is the third act of his life,” Michael said at his 100th birthday celebration. “After all he accomplished in his professional career and what he’s given for his country, at the point in his life where he’s faced adversity, losing a son, having a helicopter crash, having a stroke, and what he’s accomplished in this third act in his life, I find quite extraordinary.”

Happy Birthday Kirk, here's to 102!
