[an error occurred while processing this directive]London (ANI): Actor Kirk Douglas showed the humane side of him on Thanksgiving by serving dinner to the homeless on the streets of Los Angeles. The 92-year-old star was accompanied by his wife Anne along with hundreds of other volunteers at the Los Angeles Mission.

A day before the official American holiday, they handed out turkey meals to the destitute. The couple, who founded the mission's Anne Douglas Center, also released a statement. The center helps homeless women get employment.

"My wife has been trying to help the women that have been forced onto the streets, and she is determined to give them a better life through the Anne Douglas Center where they have programs that improve and rebuild their lives," the Daily Express quoted Douglas as saying in the statement.

He added: “We gladly come to serve men and women at Thanksgiving time to give them a good meal and strengthen their desire for a brighter future."
