Catherine Zeta-Jones, 53, candidly spoke about her love life as she gushed over her “very respectful” marriage. The Wednesday actress has been married to Michael Douglas for 22 years and the pair have two children together – a son named Dylan and a daughter named Carys.

However, Catherine stressed that she does not want people to consider her and Michael “relationship goals” as “nothing is perfect”.

She explained: “I think it’s more about not thinking, for one, that we are on a pedestal in which people go, ‘Oh, that’s perfect,’ because nothing is perfect — ever, ever, ever, ever.

“But what we do have is a very respectful relationship, in that first of all, we’re not consumed by each other’s careers, and we have interests and friends that are not solely in our business,” Catherine told InStyle.

Catherine also gave fans an insight into her and Michael’s life at home as she revealed they do not share a bathroom.

During a recent talk show appearance on NBC, Catherine elaborated on her experience living with Michael and why it’s important to have their own spaces.

She shared: “It doesn’t have to be a bathroom, you know?

“It’s a bit grandiose, ‘Oh we need our own bathrooms’. I’m all for man caves, girl caves.

“Go and potter with the hot rod in the garage. Go and plant a few herbs in the garden.”

Although the couple have been happily married for over 20 years, Catherine revealed it’s still important to find time to focus on herself.

She told Kelly Clarkson: “If you spend any amount of time with anybody, at work, you need a little space, you know?

“For me, the bathroom is more of a sanctuary. It’s not just brushing my teeth and brushing my hair.

“It’s the candles, it’s the bath, it’s the creams, it’s the lotions, you know?

“And I feel much happier when I come out of there without any intrusion.”

“Yes!” Kelly agreed. “You can do whatever you want, I’m 100 percent for this. It’s my sanctuary as well.”

Catherine regularly shares loved-up snaps with her hubby as they continue to show their strong relationship.

However, Catherine has since admitted that there have been “ups and downs” in her seemingly perfect marriage.

She shared while exposing details on the couple’s “brief” split back in 2013: “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.

“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 anymore – I’ll put it up for resale”, Catherine added to the Telegraph.

Catherine said the pair are just “good together” while also sharing a mutual “respect” for each other.
