Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones walked separate red carpets on Sunday, but that doesn't mean that their relationship is officially over.
The couple's recent separation went public in late August, and the two confirmed that they were "taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage."
That may not sound promising, but Douglas, who picked up an Emmy for best lead actor in a miniseries or movie on Sunday, played it cool and optimistic while speaking with "Entertainment Tonight" about their relationship.
"Everybody is fine. Nothing really more to say," the 68-year-old star told Nancy O'Dell. "We were just taking a little break. We're talking. I think everything will be fine and I'm very hopeful."
So where was Zeta-Jones while Douglas was at the Emmys? Making her own red carpet appearance in China at the opening of a new film studio.
Although she was on the other side of the world, we bet Zeta-Jones, 43, caught wind of Douglas' acceptance speech. As the actor received the award for his work in HBO's "Behind the Candelabra," he was sure to not only express gratitude toward his co-star, Matt Damon, and his kids, but also his estranged spouse.
"I want to thank my wife, Catherine," Douglas said as the music began to play him off, "for her support."
