Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones haven't been photographed together since April 22. They've walked red carpets solo, vacationed separately with their kids, and in recent days, Douglas has been relaxing on a yacht off the coast of Sardinia – with Zeta-Jones at home in New York.
So what's really going on with one of Hollywood's most celebrated couples? In this week's new cover story, two close confidantes tell PEOPLE that they've decided to take time apart: "They're taking a break," one source says.
Neither star has filed for divorce or moved toward a legal separation, sources say.

Catherine Zeta-Jones is back – and she looks more jaw-dropping than ever.
The Welsh actress, 43, wowed on Thursday night as she strolled the red carpet for the Red 2 premiere in Westwood, Calif., in a strapless, lacy black dress that showed off her fit physique.
It was one of Zeta-Jones's first public appearances – and her first on a red carpet – since voluntarily checking in to a treatment facility for further help managing her Bipolar II disorder, which she first revealed in 2011.

When Michael Douglas mentioned in an interview that performing oral sex could be a risk factor for the type of throat cancer he had, his comments swept the Internet.
Now the Behind the Candelabra star is issuing a clarification.
"Michael Douglas did not say cunnilingus was the cause of his cancer," his rep says in a statement. "It was discussed that oral sex is a suspected cause of certain oral cancers as doctors in the article point out, but he did not say it was the specific cause of his personal cancer."
Later, at an appearance in New York, Douglas joked about the hoopla over his interview.

Catherine Zeta-Jones is home from treatment for her Bipolar II disorder, after having checked herself into a facility last month for what her husband described as a "10,000 mile check-up."
The Oscar-winning actress was spotted out driving in New York on Tuesday.
Zeta-Jones, 43, bravely revealed her diagnosis in 2011, telling PEOPLE at the time, "This is a disorder that affects millions of people and I am one of them."
She continued, "If my revelation of having Bipolar II has encouraged one person to seek help, then it is worth it. There is no need to suffer silently and there is no shame in seeking help."

"She comes home tomorrow," he told PEOPLE on Monday. "She's doing a really good job of getting balanced. I'm proud of her."
The actress, 43, entered treatment for the second time in April as Douglas, 68, was beginning to generate praise for his role as the flamboyant piano player and vocalist, Liberace.

Many dream of kissing Matt Damon, but Michael Douglas is one of the lucky few who has actually done it. But for him, it was simply part of the job.
"Once you get that first kiss in, you are comfortable," Douglas, who stars as pianist Liberace in HBO's Behind the Candelabra, tells New York magazine in its latest cover story (on newsstands May 13).
"Matt and I didn't rehearse the love scenes. We said, 'Well – we've read the script, haven't we?' "
