Michael John Douglas (born September 5, 1951), known professionally as Michael Keaton, is an American actor.
Keaton owns a ranch in Montana and spends portions of his summers visiting his land and fly-fishing the local streams, a hobby he picked up around the age of 25.
“My favorite fishing is this: Your day’s kind of complete. You did everything you had to get done and you’ve got about an hour left of, it’s dusk. You walk and say, ‘I’m going to take a walk down to the creek.’ You grab your rods, just take a walk down. You look. There might be a hatch. You catch one nice fish and go home,” he told fly-fishing website MidCurrent.com. “What an unbelievable luxury I have that I can even think about doing that. Go down and catch a wild trout out of a stream in the evening? I mean, come on, that’s like a little kid’s dream.”
Doesn’t Get Drunk
Though he enjoys a good time, the actor admitted that he doesn’t get drunk. “I don’t get drunk. It’s not that I don’t have a drink now and again, but I’ve had my days. I’ll tell you, though, when I did it was always fun,” he said in an interview with Empire Magazine. When asked what he would like to have written on his tombstone, he replied: “He was always a good time.”
His Self-Admitted “Unpredictability” Is Hard to Live With
When asked by Elle what the hardest thing about living with him is, he said “Unpredictability … Unpredictability means what it means. I don’t know how you define it. It is what it is.” He continued, “If I knew what it was, I guess that would mean I wasn’t actually unpredictable.”
I’ve changed my diet a few times. Now I’m trying to eat more protein. I eat little meals throughout the day. I love food, so I still give myself great meals. Also, when I’m busy, it’s easy to lose weight.
