Kirk Douglas and Anne Buydens’ love story keeps on inspiring people for many years. But did you know that Kirk owes life to his wife?
How Anne saved Kirk’s life
Kirk Douglas and Anne Buydens share their love for long 64 years. Today, they might be the oldest married couple in Hollywood.
But if not for Anne’s incredible ‘sixth sense', Kirk wouldn’t be here with us. Buydens saved his life from a horrible plane crash.
It happened back in the 1950s. At that time, Douglas and Buydens lived in a neighborhood with Elizabeth Taylor and her husband, Mike Todd.
Once, Todd invited Douglas to travel on a private plane named Lucky Liz to New York. The Spartacus star said he felt very excited about the upcoming trip and accepted the offer. But his wife asked Kirk to not go as she had a bad feeling about the plane.
When I told my wife about the plane ride, she said, ‘I don’t want you to go.’ We had a big argument.
They were driving and not talking to each other when Kirk heard the tragic news on the radio. Todd’s private plane crashed, killing everyone on board.
Thanks to his wife’s intuition, Kirk Douglas could escape death.
The greatest couple of the ‘old Hollywood’
Kirk Douglas and Anne Buydens managed to keep their relationship strong for 64 years. Their beautiful story is a vivid proof that true love exists not only in books and romantic films.
The best thing is that even after more than six decades together, Kirk and Anne still hold hands and celebrate anniversaries.
Once, Kirk confessed that even in his most busy years as an actor, when he traveled a lot, he and Anne compensate the time spent apart by sending love letters to each other.
What a great couple and what a beautiful love story! Kirk and Anne, you are the best role model to follow.
