Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones may be an ocean apart – he's in Europe promoting his role in Behind the Candelabra and she's in New York with their kids – but they seem to be on the same page about how to handle their separation: Both are maintaining a brave face.
"She's determined that it be life as usual [for the kids]," says a source, who noted that Zeta-Jones has been horseback riding and swimming with their kids, Dylan, 13, and Carys, 10, during these last days of summer.
And Douglas appeared upbeat, as he walked the red carpet and greeted fans at the Deauville Film Festival this weekend. Asked about his marriage Monday, he said, "My wife and I are fine. We [are taking] a temporary separation," he said, dismissing the idea there was a crisis in his marriage.

Ring it on!
Despite reps confirming that Michael Douglas, 68, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, 43, "are taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage," the actor was photographed wearing his wedding ring at a press conference for his film Behind the Candelabra in Deauville, France, on Saturday.
"He was adorable," a source tells PEOPLE. "He was simply amazed at how well received the film was. I think this is really the first real audience screening since Cannes and he was awed."
Douglas, who the source says "was in an exceptional mood," was very friendly to the other people in attendance.

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.

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.
