Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones first met in 1998, and their connection was instantaneous! The duo knew they were meant to be, and Douglas proposed in 1999. They tied the knot in the following year, after which they became parents to two children.

Once speaking about his marriage to fellow star, Zeta-Jones, Douglas shared that he was never bothered about their age difference. Zeta-Jones herself, once revealed that her spouse was the same age as her parents, but that fact did not deter her.

This helped her marriage in so many ways, and Douglas also confirmed this as he stated in an interview that it is vital to talk things out with one’s significant other. The actor mentioned that it took him a while to realize that it is better to have discussions sooner than later.



The star couple’s love life has spanned two decades, and in those years, they stood by each other through the rocky moments. One such time was when Douglas was accused of sexual harassment. Catherine Zeta-Jones was quite supportive, and she maintained that her spouse was innocent.


Michael Douglas went under public scrutiny after his first child, Cameron was arrested and charged with the possession of drugs. Cameron was incarcerated, and he served a seven-year jail term. At the time, Douglas was dubbed a terrible parent because he felt prison was the best option for his son.
