Catherine Zeta-Jones Shares the Secret to Her 20-Year Marriage to Michael Douglas

Catherine Zeta-Jones is opening up about her marriage.

The 51-year-old actress revealed the the secret to her successful marriage to Michael Douglas in an interview with the WSJ. Magazine.

“First of all, we have a lot of fun together,” Catherine said. “My husband is 25 years older than me; that’s not a secret. With any relationship, it wouldn’t be normal if there weren’t any ups and downs. The constant is love and respect. We’ve never, ever lost our sense of humor, and we enjoy each other’s company.”

She added, “My husband and I spend a lot of time together because, unlike so many couples, we’ve never had a 9-to-5 job where it’s consistent. We’re either on or we’re off. I’m really working 16 hours a day, or I’m not. He’s doing the same, or not. So we’ve had in our relationship huge amounts of time where we’ve been just us. We lived on the island of Bermuda for 12 years bringing up our kids. We respect each other’s space, and our humor is just long-lasting.”

Michael and Catherine were married in 2000 and have two children together, Dylan, 20, and Carys, 17. Michael is also a father to Cameron Douglas, 42, from his marriage to Diandra Luker.

Catherine has been working on an exciting passion project!
