Michael Douglas' troubled son Cameron has thanked his famous family for getting him through his "darkest days" after spending seven years in prison for drug offences.
The only child of the Fatal Attraction star and his ex-wife Diandra was released from prison in August 2016 but has just given his first interview.
Talking to the Mail Online he credited his dad and step-mum Catherine Zeta-Jones for "never giving up" on him, even when he nearly had his sentence doubled for selling prescription drugs to fellow inmates.
“My family never gave up on me, not for one second,” he told the publication, crediting Catherine in-particular for her perseverance.

"She never gives up on anything and she didn’t quit on me. The love of my family got me through my darkest days."

Troubled Cameron became well-known for being the "black sheep" of the family, having numerous stints in rehab before finally getting busted in 2010 and ending up behind bars.
However he has since turned his life around, becoming a father to his daughter Lua Izzy with his Brazilian girlfriend Viviane Thibes who stood by him during his years inside.
The 39-year-old also recalled how his grandfather – Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas – sent him at "two letters a month" when the 101-year-old became too frail for visits.
"I lived a nightmare for seven years but the love of my family never wavered," he said, crediting Catherine's "scrapper" personality.
"I finally have my priorities in the right order," Cameron added. "I want to make my family proud.”
Meanwhile, Michael, 73, himself has recently found himself circled in controversy after being accused of sexual misconduct back in the 80s by a former female employee, something he has said is a "complete lie."
