Michael Douglas Catherine Zeta Jones

Michael Douglas has spoken about his marriage and his health as he stepped out with his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, at the AARP Awards on Monday night in Beverly Hills.

Coming just a day after some onlookers spotted Douglas, 71, at the Super Bowl in Santa Clara looking somewhat frail, Douglas and Zeta-Jones attended the 15th annual AARP Movies for Grownups Awards. He said that his marriage was going strong once more, after he and his wife briefly separated back in 2013.

“I think it's just moment to moment,” the Hollywood heavyweight told reporters. “Catherine reminds me, I like to say sometimes, we all make more efforts to strangers than we do to the people closest to us.”

Catherine Zeta Jones Michael Douglas

One of Hollywood's most well-known couples, Catherine Zeta-Jones marriage to Michael Douglas has certainly withstood the test of time, and it's today that the couple can say that they're celebrating 15 years of wedded bliss - though it hasn't exactly been without its pitfalls.

46-year-old Jones married Douglas, who is exactly 25 years her senior since they share a birthday, this very day (November 18th) in 2000 in a ceremony at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. It came as soon as Douglas' divorce from Diandra Luker was finalised and since then, the couple have been virtually inseparable - that was until news broke in 2013 that they had separated for a few months.

Michael Douglas Shifts From Ant-Man To Beyond The Reach


Michael Douglas

Michael Douglas' two movies this year couldn't be much more different, moving from the snappy thrills of Ant-Man to the dark tension of Beyond the Reach. The two-time Oscar-winner admits that he likes to try new things with each project.

Ant-Man was something of a dream come true. "Well, I just wanted to do one of these pics, you know," he says. "My entire career is movies that have just been contemporary stories, with no special effects. So this was just the excitement of saying, 'Hey, I want to get into Marvel world!' It's larger than life, and there's a certain theatricality about it."

Beyond The Reach Review

Good

With a spectacular setting and two solid actors on-screen, this thriller builds enough solid suspense to distract the audience from the implausible premise. Frankly, the screenwriter might have got away with it if he had avoided the temptation to indulge in some wacky bunny-boiler plotting. But Michael Douglas and Jeremy Irvine throw themselves into the situation in a way that's both gripping and entertaining.

In rural New Mexico, local orphan Ben (Irvine) has found happiness with his girlfriend Laina (Hanna Mangan Lawrence). Then she heads to Denver for university, so he throws himself into his job as a tracker working with the local small-town sheriff (Ronny Cox). His next job is to escort the cocky billionaire John (Douglas) out to the reach to hunt bighorn. But once the two men are in the wilderness, an unexpected incident reveals John's willingness to ignore the law. And now he needs to silence Ben. So John sends Ben into the desert wearing just his underpants, following him to make sure he dies unsuspiciously in the cruel sunshine. But he of course underestimates Ben's experience and resourcefulness.

The cat-and-mouse story holds the interest due to the actors, because it's never remotely believable that John's fancy jeep could keep up with the fleet-footed Ben through all of these rock-strewn mountains and ravines. And there's never even the slightest explanation for John's sudden burst of sadism. But never mind, Douglas sells the character through sheer charisma, swaggering across the Wild West like a man who has never lost at anything and doesn't intend to now. Meanwhile, Irvine throws himself into a physically demanding role that has some surprising emotional resonance. His moral dilemma is palpable, as his integrity wobbles in the face of a fistful of cash. Together, they make a terrific odd couple, with their constant distrusting glances and bald-faced bravado.

Ant-Man Review

Excellent

The increasingly stale Marvel formula gets a blast of fresh air in this rollocking adventure movie, which combines a steady stream of character-based comedy with action sequences that are integrated seamlessly into the plot. Like last summer's Guardians of the Galaxy, the film departs from the usual tired structure to joyously tell a story that's more than pure escapism.

Released from prison after a stint for burglary, Scott (Paul Rudd) is struggling to restart his life when he has an unexpected encounter with Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), an inventor who needs his help. Hank's technology company is being steered away from his original vision to help mankind by his daughter Hope (Evangeline Lilly) and his protege Darren (Corey Stoll), who see a chance to make a lot of money by selling Hank's ideas to the highest bidder. Hank's biggest breakthrough is a suit that shrinks the wearer down to ant-size, allowing for all kinds of unexpected possibilities. Pushed into a corner, Scott starts learning how to master the suit. But his ex-wife (Judy Greer) is now engaged to a cop (Bobby Cannavale) who's keeping his eye on Scott.

One of director Peyton Reed's main challenges was to sell the whole idea of an insect-sized warrior, and he does that fairly effortlessly, revealing an increasingly cool series of possibilities in each action sequence. These set-pieces emerge organically from the story, combining comedy and exhilaratingly coherent action to push the narrative forward. One of the best moments is an encounter with one of the Avengers (Anthony Mackie's Falcon), which offers a strong hint about how Ant-Man can liven up the franchise as a whole. And the climactic sequence is an inspired collision of mind-bending effects and inventive humorous touches (Thomas the Tank Engine nearly steals the whole film). Plus two post-credit stings for the fanboys.

Michael Douglas Says Social Media Is To Blame For American Actors Missing Out On Biggest Roles


Michael Douglas Dustin Hoffman Tom Holland Andrew Garfield

Michael Douglas has bemoaned what he calls a “crisis” in the American movie industry, based on diminishing opportunities given to home-grown actors ahead of their British and Australian counterparts which he believes is down to their pre-occupation with social media and image instead of formal training.

He believes that young British actors are more likely to take acting school seriously and learn their profession the old-fashioned way, while Australian male stars are more overtly “masculine” in their image than U.S. actors.

70 year old Douglas said to The Independent: “There's something going on with young American actors - both men and women - because the Brits and Australians are taking many of the best American roles from them.”

Ant-Man Trailer


When you need someone to break into a place and steal something, a career cat burglar is your best bet. Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is in jail, which isn't the best start, but when Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) needs a thief, Lang is still his man. Pym was once a miniature superhero known as Ant-Man, yet when Darren Cross (Corey Stoll) takes over his company and tries to mass-market the powerful Ant-Man suits, Pym hires Lang to break in and steal the suit back. From there, he must become the Ant-Man - no matter how much he hates the name.
