New York - Michael Douglas took a moment reflect on the memory of his mother, Diana, who died earlier this month at 92 after a bout with cancer.
"My mother had an incredible sense of dignity and was a class act," Douglas told The Associated Press Monday night at a special screening for his latest film, "Ant-Man."

Douglas went on to call her a "lady" and alluded to his shortcomings.
"I've let her down a couple of times in my life, but she certainly was a strong influence," he said.
The actress was married to Kirk Douglas, but they divorced in 1951. Kirk Douglas will turn 99 in December.
"Ant-Man" is based on the Marvel comic of the same name and stars comic actor Paul Rudd in the title role.
