London, May 8 (ANI): Michael Douglas has revealed that why he went for a knee-replacement surgery recently - so that he could chase away his daughter’s future admirers.

The ‘Wall Street’ star had injured his knee while skiing, and had to have the joint replaced in a recent operation.

But now, the 64-year-old actor has told his daughter Carys that the only reason he had the procedure was to keep teenage boys away from her when she gets older.

“I just had a knee replacement and my six-year-old daughter keeps teasing me, ‘Daddy, can you run yet? Can you catch me yet?’” the Daily Express quoted Michael as saying.

He added: “I said, ‘No. The only reason I did this operation was so I can catch you and chase those guys away when you’re a teenager.’” (ANI)
