Evangeline Lilly once told Michael Douglas she’d “like to f–k” him while chatting “in a room full of children.”
The “Lost” alum was filming a restaurant scene with Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer when she called her “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” co-stars “GILFS,” she admits on an upcoming episode of the Jonathan Ross Show (via Daily Mail.)
The actor, 78, had “no idea” what Lilly meant by the acronym, which is derived from “MILF” — “mother I’d like to f–k.”
Lilly joked that “instead of being cool about it,” the 43-year-old turned to Douglas and said, “It’s a grandpa I’d like to f–k.”
She added, “[I] immediately realized I’d told Michael Douglas I’d like to f–k him, which is not what you should say in front of a bunch of kids. Oops!”
Although the “Hurt Locker” star did not share Douglas and Pfeiffer’s response, she did gush about working with the duo.
“You don’t want to meet your icons because you’re afraid they’re going to disappoint and [they] … are cooler than you think they are,” Lilly said. “They’re amazing.”
While Pfeiffer does not appear to have grandchildren, Douglas has been a grandfather since his eldest son, Cameron Douglas, welcomed Lua, now 5, in 2017. Ryder, now 2, arrived in 2020.
Michael is also the father of son Dylan, 22, and daughter Carys, 19, with his wife of 22 years, Catherine Zeta-Jones — and he was confused for his youngest child’s grandpa at her 2021 graduation ceremony.
The Oscar winner shrugged off the mistake, despite telling Kelly Clarkson in a June 2021 interview that the comments were “a little rough.”
He noted, “I’m not gonna take it personal.”
