On his divorce from Diandra Luker, which reportedly cost Douglas $45 million:
"Why did I [marry her]? I really could not tell you. It was very impulsive. When I met Diandra, I was at Jimmy Carter's inauguration with Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson, and in this whirlwind we decided to get married. Maybe I wanted an anchor, a home. We separated a couple of times over the years. I was working hard. Whether trying to deal with the marriage or with disillusionment in it, I wasn't spending enough time on that."
