There is no doubt that Michael Douglas is working as hard as he can to save his marriage to fellow Oscar winner Catherine Zeta-Jones, but sources close to the popular actor worry that it may be too late.
“It seems to me, that horse is already ‘out of the barn,’” said a veteran Hollywood producer, long friends with the Douglas family. “I just get the sense that Catherine has moved on and wants to get on with her life.”
Another source added, “Both of them are terrific people and clearly still have strong feelings for each other, but I think that if there would have been a real reconciliation — more than merely spending time together for the sake of their kids at Christmastime — it would have happened already,” said the second Douglas insider.
In the meantime, Douglas continues to take the high road both in public — and perhaps more importantly — in private, where friends say he never says anything negative about his estranged wife, who has publicly addressed her battle with bipolar disease.
