Catherine Zeta-Jones has revealed her marriage to Michael Douglas is back on track as they have got to know each other again now their children have grown up.
The couple have rebuilt their relationship after taking a trial separation in 2013, and are now “very much in love”. They are also enjoying being empty nesters as their children – Dylan, 20, and Carys, 18 – have returned to college.
Now the Welsh Oscar winner, 51, has said that she believes that marriages have certainly been tested during lockdown.
She said: “But we are very much in love, and I must say, like all married couples, if you can get through a year of lockdown you can get through anything.”
Zeta-Jones married Douglas, now 76, in 2000 but their relationship was tested after he was diagnosed with advanced throat cancer in 2010.
The Chicago star, who first found fame in The Darling Buds of May, said they are now enjoying getting reacquainted as their children have become more independent.
She added: “It’s a bit like, ‘Hello, Michael, remember me? I remember you from 20 years ago and now I’m back’.
“We do get along very well, and we’re very similar in many ways. Even our handwriting is similar.”
