Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are a powerhouse celebrity couple everyone loves. Meeting at the Deauville Film Festival in 1998, the two knew it was a match made in heaven. Nearly 20 years after saying “I do,” Douglas says he still feels butterflies around his wife.
Butterflies At Every Turn
At the Emmys, Douglas spoke to Us Weekly about his Netflix series The Kominsky Method. When asked about his loving wife, the actor told the publication, “She does [still give me butterflies]. She cleans up pretty good.” Zeta-Jones attended the award ceremony with him. The actor was nominated for his sixth Emmy with his performance in The Kominsky Method. Douglas first attended the ceremony as a nominee back in 1974 for The Streets of San Francisco.
For Douglas, these major award shows are a great way to keep in touch with friends. “We live back east and we live in the country. So, we look at it as an opportunity to come out and see a lot of old friends and go to these shows, see people we love or admire,” the actor also told Us Weekly. “We’re fans to of a lot of the stuff that we see on television and in the films, so that part is great and sort of treat it like a real experience rather than a necessity or part of your requirements.”
A Magnificent Wedding
Douglas and Zeta-Jones started dating back in March 1999. In November 2000, the couple tied the knot inside New York City’s Plaza Hotel. Their wedding was one of the most glamorous events ever with a price tag of $1.5 million. Zeta-Jones’ wedding dress cost $250,000 alone. A-listers such as Tom Hanks, Barbara Walters, and Steven Spielberg attended the ceremony. The wedding wouldn’t have been complete without live music. Fortunately, Bonnie Tyler, Jimmy Buffett, and Gladys Knight rocked the star-studded crowd.
For the big day, Zeta-Jones asked Douglas for one simple favor. “I just told Michael, ‘No crying.’ He doesn’t even have to have a tear in his eye. He just has this look where I know that he’s about to start, and that does me in. I said, ‘I don’t even want you to look at me until I’m halfway down the aisle,'” the actress told People.
Til Death Do Us Part
One thing uniting the couple further is their shared birthday of September 25. With their children Dylan and Carys in school, the couple has the house to themselves. Instead of throwing a major party, they decided to hang out with friends instead this year. “We were starting to plan a big bang and then realized it was just overwhelming and we could do it some other time,” Douglas told Page Six. “So we’re going to just be quiet. We have a number of friends who share our same birthday and we’re going to go to one of their parties and hide.”
The couple has been busy outside of their married life. Douglas will lend his voice to Guy-Am-I in Netflix’s Green Eggs and Ham series. He’ll also reprise his Hank Pym role in Disney+’s What If series. Douglas will sit in the director’s chair for the remake of 1984’s Starman. The original film and subsequent TV series were also directed by Douglas. With the success of The Kominsky Method, a third season could be a possibility.
Over the summer, Zeta-Jones was awarded the Freedom of the City in her hometown of Swansea. Recently, she appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair Spain with Carys. Zeta-Jones can be seen in the Facebook Watch series Queen America. Outside of acting, Zeta-Jones owns a home decor line cleverly named Casa Zeta-Jones.
With their 19th wedding anniversary coming up, the couple could focus on the party they set aside.
