Michael Douglas - Michael Douglas worries about his kids

Michael Douglas is concerned about the impact his marriage troubles will have on his children.

The 69-year-old actor is taking a ''break'' from 44-year-old wife Catherine Zeta Jones and is worried his two children - Dylan, 13, and Carys, 10 - will be affected by what they read in the news.

He told the UK's Hello! Magazine: ''I went out with them the other day and, you know, you can see some headlines in newspapers and magazines that might be upsetting and so as a sort of back-up, I said to them, 'Okay, kids, now you might be seeing some things written down about your mother and me that will be wrong and infamous and you just have to know that these things are not always true'.

''Dylan just looked at me and said, 'Huh - you mean like when I read that you were going to die in three weeks? I said, 'Yeah - like that.' ''

Michael is keen to spend a lot of time with his children and is planning a trip abroad where he can enjoy some father-son bonding time with Dylan.

He said: ''We all plan to do some travelling together next year. My son is very interested in Roman history and desperate to go to Rome, so we're going to take a trip together, which I'm very much looking forward to.''
