Jewish-American actor and film producer Michael Douglas and his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones celebrated their 22nd anniversary on Friday, keeping the public up-to-date through their glamorous Instagram posts.
In light of her star role in the new Netflix comedy-horror series "Wednesday," the Welsh actress, 53, has been frequently seen in the spotlight, and has offered some inside scoop into her relationship.
In an interview, she said she is extremely lucky to have Douglas, 78, by her side, and that she is thankful everyday for choosing the right man, calling him a wonderful husband, father, and actor.
The couple has two kids - Dylan, 22, and Carys, 19. Zeta-Jones said its difficult to grasp that they've been married for 22 years, and her son Dylan is what constantly reminds her of the time that flew by.
Douglas himself is the son of the legendary Jewish-American actor Kirk Douglas.
The two met at a movie festival in 1996, when Douglas was at the peak of his career and Zeta-Jones was just a young actress, still new to showbiz. Their mutual friend, Spanish actor Antonio Banderas, set the two up at the event.
The young actress was not especially star-struck by Douglas, and played it cool in the beginning. Ever since, Douglas was hooked, and the two ended up getting engaged by 1999.
Douglas sealed the deal with a diamond ring worth one million dollars, and a grandiose wedding ceremony, attended by Hollywood stars such as Tom Hanks, Whoopi Goldberg, and Anthony Hopkins.
The two even visited Israel in 2015, when Douglas won the Genesis Prize - a $1 million annual prize awarded to Jewish people who have achieved significant professional success.
