"When you are younger you care what other people think. And you take the person closest to you for granted. You waste a lot of energy on strangers to make a good impression," he said.
"When you're older you focus that energy on the people closest to you, on your family. And you're courteous." Douglas also explained that he thinks mistakes are only bad if people fail to learn from them.
"First you have to admit that you made a mistake, then dealing with it is easy. Of course it's important to make mistakes, as long as you grow from them," he said.
Douglas is due to appear in Ant-Man as Dr Hank Pym and recently said that it is "very disappointing" that Edgar Wright has departed from the project.
