Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones Want It To Be 'Life as Usual' for Kids

Originally posted 09/03/2013 06:00PM

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.

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.

Michael Douglas Clarifies Remarks About Cancer and Oral Sex

Originally posted 06/03/2013 06:30PM

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.

Review: Michael Douglas Is 'Simply Great' in Liberace Biopic

Michael Douglas Is 'Simply Great' in Behind the Candelabra, Says PEOPLE's TV Critic

Director Steven Soderbergh's Behind the Candelabra (Sunday, 9 p.m. ET, on HBO) is one of the smartest, tartest examples I've ever seen of that soupy genre, the Hollywood biopic.

Michael Douglas – simply great – plays Liberace, once upon a time billed as Mr. Showmanship. Wikipedians probably know him as a closeted Vegas piano act who performed under staggering amounts of fur, jewels and sequins – with his thick toupee, he looked like Bob Mackie's idea of a snow owl – and who died of complications from AIDS in 1987.

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."
