Michael Douglas sounds optimistic when it comes to him and estranged wife Catherine Zeta-Jones.

"Things are great," Douglas, now starring in Last Vegas, told reporters when asked about his nearly 13-year marriage. "Onward and upward."

Douglas, 69, was sans Zeta-Jones, 44, in Las Vegas at a promotional event for his new movie but donned his wedding ring and seemed in fine spirits.

Zeta-Jones was also spotted wearing her wedding ring in New York City last week, though the couple, who decided to "take a break" from their marriage earlier this year, haven't stepped out publicly together since last spring.

Douglas said he planned on seeing his father, 95-year-old screen legened Kirk Douglas, over the weekend, and added that he'd spoken to his 13-year-old son, Dylan, earlier in the evening.

The teen happened to mention his father's new movie, which also stars Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Kevin Kline, as older pals who attend a bachelor party in Sin City.

"He's having a sleepover with his friend." Michael said about Dylan. "He says, 'Dad, Tommy saw one of the clips for the movie. He thinks it's so cool. He thinks it's better than The Hangover. I thought, oh Dylan, from your lips to God's ears."
