He may have thanked Catherine Zeta-Jones during his acceptance speech at the Emmy Awards on Sunday, but Michael Douglas spent his birthday on Wednesday without his wife of 13 years. The actor was photographed leaving a casual birthday dinner at Outback Steakhouse, while Catherine, who also celebrated a birthday on Wednesday, is believed to still be across the globe in China.
Over the summer, Star was first to report on Michael and Catherine’s looming divorce, and at the end of August, the couple announced their separation. According to the Behind the Candelabra star, the split is temporary, but his 44-year-old wife has yet to comment on the situation.
After winning his first Emmy Award on Sunday, Michael made a point to thank Catherine, and referred to her as his wife while doing so.
