Michael Douglas took Catherine Zeta-Jones for ‘granted’.The former Wall Street actor and the eldest of actor Kirk Douglas sons has admitted that he did with his Welsh actress wife. The sixty nine year old and forty four year old Zeta Jones last August took a short break from each other. He now says that his past mistakes have taught him lessons and he has re-evaluated his relationship.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said:
”When you are younger you care what other people think. And you take the person closest to you for granted. You waste a lot of energy on strangers to make a good impression. When you’re older you focus that energy on the people closest to you, on your family. And you’re courteous.”
The couple have children, a son thirteen year old Dylan and eleven year old daughter Carys and a grown-up son Cameron from his marriage to Diandra Douglas, says his intimate part of his relationship has even changed since their reconciliation.
Asked if he is in the prime of his life, he replied:
”Sexually? I am more comfortable in my own skin now.”
