Hollywood actors Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones "are taking time apart" after 13 years of marriage, it has been confirmed.
The actress's publicist told the BBC the couple had taken the decision in order to "evaluate and work on their marriage".
Douglas, 68, and Swansea-born Zeta Jones, 43, married in 2000 after meeting in France two years earlier.
They have two children - Dylan, 13, and Carys, 10.
The pair have both struggled with health problems in recent years.
