Trump scarecrow spotted at Michael Douglas’s holiday home

A scarecrow resembling President Donald Trump has been put up in a vegetable garden at Hollywood star Michael Douglas’s Spanish holiday home.

The not quite spitting image of the president, featuring a Trump mask, a stars and stripes tie, and a distinctive mop of blonde hair, sits on Douglas’s Majorcan estate that has been on the market since 2015.

The scarecrow protects tomatoes, zucchinis and eggplants from birds at the actor’s S’Estaca country estate, near the village of Valldemossa on the north-western coast of the Balearic island.

It is unknown who put the scarecrow up at the home, but there’s no suggestion that Democrat Douglas, who supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential Election, constructed it.

S’Estaca was bought by Douglas in 1989 as a surprise for his first wife Diandra Luker who had links with Majorca since childhood.

After their divorce in 1995, they agreed to share the use of the luxury home but it has been on the market, originally priced at around 50 million EUR (46.5 million GBP), for the last two years.

Neighbors said in 2015 that they hadn’t haven’t seen the residents for months and only on the odd occasion in the last five years. 

Douglas, a longtime Democratic donor, has praised Trump in the past, calling him a ‘golf buddy’ and ‘not an idiot’.

Ahead of the inauguration in January, Douglas urged Americans not to judge Trump too quickly.

‘I personally know the President-elect Donald Trump. I’ve spent time with him, played golf with him, my wife Catherine and I have the same birthday and have had him (Trump) at parties together,’ Douglas told hubculture.com.

He added: ‘I’ve always found him to be charming and have a self-deprecating humor — but then again, one of the things you learn playing golf is not to talk politics or religion,’ he continued.

‘I think we have to wait. He’s not an idiot so I will be curious to see what plays out.’

It is unknown if Douglas’s opinions on Trump have changed since the president took office in January.

In the past, Douglas’s stunning Spanish retreat has played host to the likes of Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Michelle Pfeiffer and Jack Nicholson.

There are a number of residences on the property: the villa itself, five apartments and two small houses and a loft – 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms in all.

After splitting up with Ms Luker, Douglas married the Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones in 2000

The property also boasts a home cinema, wine cellar, outdoor pool, games room, library and an outdoor kitchen. The house and outlying buildings have 10,764-square-foot of floor space.

The property was once a ruined manor house which was restored by Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria who fled to Majorca to escape Viennese court life in 1867 and lived there with his lover Catalina Homar.

The famous painter Domenico Gnoli and his artist wife Yannick Vu also lived at the property towards the end of the 1960s.

The couple at first spent weeks on end at the 247-acre property but have not been seen on the island since June 2014.

Valldemossa, which lies deep in the heart of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains, along the rugged western coast of Majorca, is regarded as one of the island’s prettiest villages.
