Michael Douglas - Michael Douglas 'Hopeful' He Can Save Marriage

Michael Douglas is ''hopeful'' he can save his marriage.

The 68-year-old actor opened up about his rocky romance with Catherine Zeta Jones - who he began dating in March 1999 - at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday night (22.09.13) in Los Angeles by confirming the long-term couple are on a ''break'', but are keen to work through their differences.

He told US presenter Billy Bush: ''Catherine is great. She is doing wonderful, talked to her today [and] just got a lovely note from her. I'm very hopeful that we're going to work things out.

''As I said we're just taking a break, a couple of issues, sometimes you got to do that.''

Michael - who has two children Dylan, 13, and Carys, 10, with the Welsh beauty - picked up the gong for Best Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie Award for HBO's 'Behind The Candelabra' at the ceremony.

He thanked his estranged wife during his moving acceptance speech, as well as giving a special shout out to his eldest son Cameron from his first marriage, who is currently serving time for drugs offences.

Michael said: ''I want to thank my wife Catherine for her support, my kids Dylan and Carys, and a shout out for my oldest son Cameron and hoping that they'll allow me to see him soon.''

The father-of-three has not been pictured with Catherine since they announced their separation in August.
