“It can’t be a one-way street, but I’m crazy about her. And yeah, I think every couple has their difficult times. The only problem is, as you well know, we’re all in the public eye, and it tends to get a little more exposed than most,” he told host Ellen DeGeneres. “We’re back stronger than ever.”


The secret to their lasting marriage

In an interview with The Telegraph, the actress reflected on the struggles in her marriage while drawing amusing parallels to her assortment of designer handbags. “It’s impossible for there not to be ups and downs if you live with the same person and wake up with them every day,” Zeta-Jones admitted. “I’ve been waking up to Mike for nearly 25 years. I love being married but it’s a crazy thing when you really think about it. ‘Will you marry me?’ ‘Sure!’ But then you think about the Chanel purse you spent a fortune on, and actually, I don’t really like it any more – I’ll put it up for resale.”


Zeta-Jones also expressed affection for her older spouse and emphasized that their age difference had never impacted their relationship. “We respect each other and I never really feel that he’s 25 years older than me,” she explained. “I remember people saying, ‘When you’re 50, he’s going to be 75.’ Well, that’s just maths.”
