Late Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas reportedly left almost all of his $80 million fortune to charity instead of to his much wealthier movie star son. Page Six reports that Douglas, who died earlier this month at the impressive age of 103, left the bulk of his estate to the Douglas Foundation, which supports the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, St. Lawrence University, and the Kirk and Anne Douglas Childhood Center, among other causes. There was apparently nothing left to 75-year-old son Michael Douglas, whose net worth is an estimated $300 million, reports Fox. It's not clear whether the star's two other surviving sons, Joel and Peter, were included in the will. (Read more Kirk Douglas stories.)
