Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, 25-Year Age Difference

Michael Douglas and Catherine

Michael Douglas and CatherineThe eldest son of actor Kirk Dou­glas, Michael Dou­glas was born in 1944 in New Brunswick, New Jer­sey. Over the years, Dou­glas has won four Golden Globes, and two Acad­emy Awards as pro­ducer of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and as Best Actor in Wall Street.

In March 1977, 32-year-old Dou­glas mar­ried 19-year-old Dian­dra Luker; Dian­dra filed for divorce in 1995. A few short years later, Michael was intro­duced to Welsh actress Cather­ine Zeta-Jones by Danny DeVito at the Deauville Film Fes­ti­val in France. They started dat­ing a few months later in March 1999.

Douglas’s divorce with Luker was final­ized in 2000, just in time for Dou­glas to wed Zeta-Jones in Novem­ber 2000. Both Dou­glas and Zeta-Jones share the same birth­day though they have a 25-year age gap.

Zeta-Jones jumped on the Hol­ly­wood radar in the 1998 action film The Mask of Zorro and in the 1999 film Entrap­ment. Since then, she has appeared most notably in the films Traf­fic, America’s Sweet­hearts, and Chicago.

In August 2013, this celebrity cou­ple revealed that were tem­porar­ily separated.

About Amani F

The relationship started innocently enough—like many, it grew from a platonic, working relationship. He was a well-respected, prominent business man with a seemingly perfect life, a wife, children who had grown up to be successful adults, and a religious upbringing. I was a 30-year-old college graduate, up-and-coming executive, and a single, working mother with an adorable toddler son, and a not-so-adorable, slowly dying, five-year relationship with my son’s biological father. On the first clear day of spring, he asked if I’d like to go get a breath of fresh air. We met in a park on the shore of Lake Michigan, and it was there, sitting on a bench together, that I learned his age. He was, as my father would say, “double-nickels.” This 55-year-old man, handsome, well-dressed, with just a sprinkle of gray near his temples, and the calmest, clearest blue eyes, was the most enticing man I’d ever laid eyes (or soon hands) upon in my life! For years, I invested my efforts trying to nurture a relationship with a man my age, giving him 100%; and in return, I received lies, mental abuse, and rough, emotionless sex, and my son received emotional neglect. And yet there, in the matter of a few minutes on a park bench and over the course of just a few short months, “Double-Nickels” showed me the most unimaginable care and kindness through his touch and his soft-spoken nature, his intellect and his genuine interest in what I had to say. Today, more than 10 years later, after facing our share of obstacles, we are happily married and socially accepted by our family, and our local and business communities. His adult children are cordial; my family (most especially my father) loves my husband and, best of all, he was able to legally adopt my son—our son, who is now a teenager! Love doesn’t pick an age; it picks a person.
