Los Angeles: Hollywood actor Michael Douglas has pledged not to use fireworks to celebrate American Independence Day after the show turned dangerous the previous year.

The 66-year-old star insists his surprise light show last year was spoiled by the choppy waters, which turned the surprise light show into a dangerous disaster, reported Access Hollywood.

"We usually go to Spain in the summers, so we make a big Fourth of July... because we`re not here, we`re not in the US.

"Last time I tried to surprise (the family) with fireworks out in the ocean on a raft, except it started getting a little rough and fireworks started coming in wrong angles," said Douglas.

The `Wall Street` star, who enjoys the annual `4 July` preparations, admits his effort to entertain his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and the children failed to work as per the plans.
