A-listers Douglas, Zeta-Jones 'take break' from marriage
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Hollywood A-listers Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, one of Tinseltown's most high-profile couples, have decided to take a break from their 13-year marriage, representatives for the pair said on Wednesday.
The 68-year-old US actor and his 43-year-old British wife have had a rough few years health-wise, while cancer survivor Douglas made headlines earlier this year with comments to a British newspaper about oral sex.
The couple - who have two children, Dylan, 13, and 10-year-old Carys - decided to live apart after Douglas returned from the Cannes Film Festival in May, shortly after his wife checked in for a second round of treatment for bipolar disorder, People magazine reported.
"Michael and Catherine are taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage. There is no further comment," Douglas spokesman Allen Burry told AFP, confirming the cover story in the latest issue of People.
