He's received countless awards for his work -- everything from the Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award to an Honorary Academy Award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the American Film Institute Lifetime Achievement award.

For his 103rd birthday, the actor's son, Michael Douglas, shared a tribute to his father.

"Happy birthday Dad! You are a living legend and your entire family sends you all the love in their hearts! #KirkDouglas #103" he wrote alongside a photo of them.

For Kirk's 102nd birthday last year, Michael told "Good Morning America" that his father was doing "unbelievable."

"Our only problem is he's discovered FaceTime," Douglas shared.

"But he doesn't have the three-hour time change worked out -- from west coast, we live on the east coast, we're early guys. We have kids, so 10:30 we're in bed. We get a 'Where are you?' 'I'm in bed, dad,'" he said with a laugh.

"He's fantastic. I just can't get over it. His memory is all there," Douglas continued. "He's in good health. He's got a walker and a wheelchair."

Michael's wife, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, also offered her best wishes to Kirk on Monday.
