Actor Michael Douglas is the most supportive husband ever! After his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, 48, recently made headlines for her unapologetic attitude regarding her career and success, Michael, 73, has revealed that he stands behind her 100 percent.
“One thing I’m not is humble anymore.” Catherine recently said in an interview with The Mirror. “I’m sick of being humble. I really am. ‘So sorry I’m rich. So sorry I’m married to a movie star. So sorry I’m not so bad looking.’ No sorrys. Enough. All that is important to me now is my work.”
After 17 years of marriage, Michael knows Catherine better than anyone and he’s not afraid to let everyone know about his wife’s accomplishments. “She comes from humble roots. She’s a humble young lady. If you got it, flaunt it. She’s probably saying ‘I’ve worked hard enough.’ She earned it,” he recently told E! News. “She’s branching out in a couple other areas. She’s got a whole branding line of Casa Zeta-Jones, and she’s on QVC, and she’s an entrepreneur and I totally support her! The acting roles, particularly for ladies at a certain age, become much more difficult. This is something where you can actually control your life so she really enjoys it.”
This year, the couple will celebrate their 18th wedding anniversary in November. Catherine and Michael are also proud parents to kids Dylan, 17, and Carys, 15, together. The family is such a tight-knit unit, in fact, that the Douglas clan recently (and perfectly!) recreated an old family photo on Instagram.
Although their kids are not as small as they used to be, Catherine and Michael did their best to hold Dylan and Carys in their arms like they used to when they were little ones. Unfortunately, Michael could only support one of his son’s legs and Carys held onto her mom as tight as possible. “As time goes by! Outside our cottage in Canada. ??,” Catherine captioned the sweet pic. (Scroll to Catherine’s second photo in the Instagram post to see the throwback “before” family pic!)
And fans thought the moment was too cute. “Beautiful family! Very inspiring, I can feel in this pic positive energy and love around you. Bless you,” one fan wrote. “Soooo cute! Keep the ❤ forever @CatherineZetaJones and Mr. Michael Douglas,” another said.
