MICHAEL DOUGLAS insists his marriage to CATHERINE ZETA-JONES is far from over - they're just taking a break.
The movie star and the Welsh Oscar winner announced their separation last week (ends30Aug13) after months of speculation about the state of their marriage, but Douglas, who is solo at the Berlin Film Festival in Germany, has told reporters that things are "fine" between himself and his wife.
Promoting his new Liberace biopic, Behind the Candelabra, at the festival, Douglas said, "My wife and I are fine. We take a temporary separation, but the press, it gives you stuff to write about."
Zeta-Jones, 43, has yet to address the separation.
