Veteran actor Michael Douglas admits that he tried to persuade wife Catherine Zeta Jones to dress as a nurse following his knee surgery.

The Basic Instinct star had titanium rods put in the left joint last month after a skiing injury.

The 64-year-old legend revealed that although Catherine helped to nurse him back to health, but he failed to convince her to don the nurse’s dress.

“I could not get her into the nurse’s uniform. I did try,” the Sun quoted him as telling US chat host Jay Leno.

Douglas also revealed that he is “excited” to reprise his role as trader Gordon Gekko in the sequel to Wall Street.

He had won the best actor Oscar for his role in original 1987 film.
