Michael Douglas: ‘Ant-Man’ Star Says He Loves Catherine Zeta-Jones ‘More Than Ever’

Michael Douglas is more in love with his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones than ever before.

The Ant-Man star recently opened up about his wife, his two kids, and his life after cancer during an interview with the Daily Mail.

Douglas and Zeta-Jones, who will be celebrating their 15-year wedding anniversary soon, had a very public separation in 2013, following Douglas’ cancer diagnosis.

“We had a little bump in the road,” he told the news site. ‘The problem in this business is that everything is so public.”

“I love Catherine as much, more than I ever have. And hopefully the feeling’s mutual.”

Douglas even revealed that he and Zeta-Jones are back together, and working on their differences.

“We worked things out – if both people want to work something out and make it better, you can do it. You can’t do it if it’s just one person,” he said.

The couple has two children together Dylan, 14, and Carys, 12, and Michael couldn’t help but boast about their accomplishments.

“Carys and her mum are very tight, very close and they’re both very good dancers,” he said proudly. “I take Carys to dance and I take her to Broadway shows – that’s something we share together.”

“Dylan plays the guitar – he’s really into Talking Heads. And he and I are both scuba divers, we just came back from Costa Rica,” he added. “He went down a hundred feet – he’s so good at it – and it’s just magical down there.”

Douglas was previously diagnosed with tongue cancer, which he contributed publicly to oral sex, embarrassing his wife and her family.

“I was trying to make a public service comment,” he said, according to ABC News. “It was one of those things… and I so regretted any embarrassment that it caused Catherine. And her family.”

Now, he says being diagnosed with cancer helped him realize the important things in life.

“It feels like a rebirth after you go through cancer and you come out of it. You feel like you’re a child,” the two-time Oscar winner said. “You see priorities differently. You have a much deeper appreciation of marriage, of your children — you see everything a little bit clearer, and a little brighter.”
