The 'Behind the Candelabra' actor, who previously announced that he and his wife were 'taking a break,' said prior to the Emmys that he and Zeta-Jones were 'going to work things out.'
Michael Douglas is trying to save his marriage with Catherine Zeta-Jones. As he went to the Emmy Awards ceremony, Douglas told PEOPLE about his marriage, "We're working things out, talking, and we'll see how she goes." The 68-year-old actor also gave a similar statement to U.K.'s Daily Mirror, saying, "I'm very hopeful that we're going to work things out."
The veteran actor, who announced back in August that he and his wife were taking a break, mentioned Zeta-Jones in his acceptance speech as he won a trophy for his portrayal of Liberace in HBO movie "Behind the Candelabra". "I wanna thank my wife, Catherine, for her support," he said, before giving a shout-out to his son Cameron.
Douglas and Zeta-Jones got married in 2000. The couple has two children together, 13-year-old Dylan and 10-year-old Carys.
In other news, Zeta-Jones made her first public appearance since the separation announcement in China. The "Ocean's Twelve" actress attended an event which announced the launch of Qingdao Oriental Movie Metropolis in Shandong province on Saturday, September 22.
Zeta-Jones was not the only Hollywood celebrity who was at the film studio launching. Other stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio, John Travolta, Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor were also among the attendees.
