Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are ''doing great'' and have learned not to take one another for granted.
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are ''doing great''.
The couple took a break from their 13-year relationship last August, but the 'Behind the Candelabra' star says they now have things back on track.
He said: ''I think we're always working it out. Two people choose to work it out, we're doing great thank you. We're very close and everything's going great.''
The 69-year-old actor - who has son, Dylan, 13, and daughter, Carys, 11 with Catherine, 44, as well as grown-up son Cameron from his marriage to Diandra Douglas - says he has learned not to take his wife for granted and his attention is focused more on her than anyone else.
Speaking to Gayle King for 'Entertainment Tonight', he said: ''You don't take love for granted... Sometimes we spend more efforts with people that are strangers in terms of making an impression than the person that's closest to us. And you just gotta remember not to take for granted that person that's closest to you.''
Meanwhile, Michael has suffered an injury after ''getting carried'' away at his son's recent Bar Mitzvah, a ceremony which marked Dylan's coming-of-age into the Jewish faith.
Referring to the horah, a type of dance where the honouree and their family members are raised up on chairs, Michael told the New York Post newspaper:
''I'm hurting. I don't know whether it's my groin or a hernia. I got carried away at my son's bar mitzvah this weekend. You know they put you up in the chairs over the top -- I think something happened there.''
