Michael Douglas admits he took his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones "for granted"

Michael Douglas has spoken about his split from Catherine Zeta-Jones for the first time since they reunited saying that he previously ‘took her for granted’.

The pair separated for a period last August after Michael was diagnosed with tongue cancer and Catherine visited rehab after suffering bipolar disorder.

These two events were believed to have put a massive strain on their fourteen-year-marriage.

Actor Michael Douglas says he took his wife Zeta-Jones for granted before they split last year. But he says he has learnt from this. The couple are together again.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: "When you are younger you care what other people think. And you take the person closest to you for granted. You waste a lot of energy on strangers to make a good impression. When you're older you focus that energy on the people closest to you, on your family. And you're courteous."

The 'Behind the Candelabra' star - who has son, Dylan, 13, and daughter, Carys, 11, with Catherine, as well as grown-up son Cameron from his marriage to Diandra Douglas - even revealed his sex life has improved since his reconciliation with the brunette beauty a few months ago.

However, Michael now says that it was his diagnosis which ultimately enabled him to put things into perspective and re-evaluate his marriage.

“First you have to admit that you made a mistake, then dealing with it is easy. Of course it’s important to make mistakes, as long as you grow from them,” Michael said.

Douglas also revealed that he recently injured himself at his son’s bar mitzvah, after getting just a little carried away. Literally. “I’m hurting. I don’t know whether it’s my groin or a hernia,” the screen legend said.

“I got carried away at my son’s bar mitzvah this weekend. You know they put you up in the chairs over the top — I think something happened there.”
