Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have confirmed that they are separating.
The Hollywood couple, who wed in 2000, have released a statement announcing that they have decided to separate to "evaluate" their marriage.
"Catherine and Michael are taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage," the couple's spokesperson said in a statement. "There will be no further comment."
The pair have had a difficult time of it recently due to Michael's battle with cancer and Catherine's struggles with bipolar II disorder.
Michael, 68, and Catherine, 43, have two children, Dylan, 13, and Carys, 10, together.
