Actor Michael Douglas is best-known for his roles in films such as "Wall Street," "Basic Instinct," "Romancing the Stone" and "Fatal Attraction, which was released 25 years ago today. He's won two Academy Awards, including a best actor nod for "Wall Street," and three Golden Globes; and has produced 18 films, including "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," which won five Oscars, including best picture. But according to author Marc Eliot, who has written a new biography of Douglas, he grew up troubled by his parents' divorce and his father Kirk's stardom -- and these factors played a role in Michael's reported battles with alcohol and drugs. Douglas' 30-day stint in rehab made headlines in 1992. Here is an excerpt from the book, "Michael Douglas: A Biography."

After completing "Falling Down," perhaps to repair his relationship with Diandra, Michael took her and Cameron to Spain to spend the summer of 1992 at their hillside retreat in Majorca. They were joined for part of the trip by Jack Nicholson and his girlfriend at the time, Rebecca Broussard. It was not a good mix.
