Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are working on their relationship. When asked by Jay Leno on Monday, October 21, the "Behind the Candelabra" star told the late-night show host that he was "hopeful" everything went well. "Good I hope. I've been away for a while but everything should hopefully be on the up and up," he said during an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno".
The 69-year-old actor also told E! News similar thing at a press event for his movie "Last Vegas" over the weekend. "Onwards and upwards," he said when asked about his relationship with the "Red 2" actress.
Recently, a man who was said to be Douglas was reportedly spotted with Zeta-Jones in Greenwich, Connecticut, but the actor denied that it was him. "I haven't been home yet... I've been in New Mexico making a picture called 'The Reach' for the last five weeks... So, I look forward to getting home, but that wasn't me... Must've been a look alike," Douglas told Extra.
In late August, representatives for both stars said that the couple was having a break. "Catherine and Michael are taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage," they said. Douglas and Zeta-Jones have two children together, Dylan and Carys.
