(Newser) – Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas celebrated his 100th birthday on Friday, USA Today reports. More importantly, he finally got a nip of vodka. According to People, the party at the Beverly Hills Hotel was attended by Douglas' wife Anne, his son Michael (who, he joked, organized the party because "he has the most money"), his daughter-in-law Catherine Zeta-Jones, Steven Spielberg (who called Douglas "the only movie star I've ever met"), Don Rickles, and more. "He is always asking about what kind of father he was," Michael Douglas said in a speech. "Dad, you are an amazing, amazing father.” The party ended after the star of Spartacus was given a glass of vodka by his cardiologist, who had promised Douglas years ago he could have some when he turned 100.
