Douglas and Zeta-Jones ‘apart for birthdays’

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones will apparently spend their birthdays apart.

The pair married in 2000, but recently revealed that they are currently on a “break”.

Catherine and Michael were both born on September 25, but 25 years apart.

The Chicago actress turns 44 tomorrow, while Michael will reach the age of 69, but according to Radar Online they won’t be celebrating together.

“Michael left Los Angeles soon after his Emmys win and is back on set and working again,” a source told the website. “He will not be in New York for his birthday. He and Catherine will be spending their birthdays apart.”

Catherine is currently in the Big Apple after returning from China, where she attended an event to announce the launch of a film studio.

The couple have two children together, who Catherine will reportedly be seeing to celebrate her special day.

“Catherine will spend her birthday with Carys and Dylan,” the insider continued.

Michael took home the Emmy Award for best actor in a miniseries or movie for his portrayal of Liberace in Behind the Candelabra.

When picking up his prize he made a touching speech, in which he mentioned his wife and children, including his son Cameron, 35, who is currently serving a ten-year prison sentence.

He also opened up about his troubled marriage to Catherine at the event.

“Catherine is great. She is doing wonderful, talked to her today [and] just got a lovely note from her. I’m very hopeful that we’re going to work things out,” he told Access Hollywood.

“As I said we’re just taking a break, a couple issues, sometimes you gotta do that.”
