Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones visited a millionaire's playground for their latest date. The long-time couple jetted off to the Monaco Grand Prix where they had a frontrow view of the exciting sporting event.

Catherine took to social media to give fans a glimpse of their sunny surroundings and confessed she loves racing cars. She also took a selfie with Michael in which he showed off his rugged appearance with stubble and a sun tan. 

Their trip to Monaco comes hot off the back of their outing to Cannes. The 53-year-old turned heads in a sparkling dark blue mini dress for an appearance at the new Aston Martin DB12 launch at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc.

Her husband of 22 years, meanwhile, looked smart in a navy suit with a pale blue shirt and happily posed for photos with his wife at the swanky event.

When asked in a 2021 interview with WSJ Magazine about the secret behind their 20-year-strong marriage, the Welsh actress explained their relationship had lasted because they still have lots of fun together. She shared that "constant love and respect" and maintaining a "sense of humor" are key to marital success. 

Announcing in 2013 that they were taking a break from being together, they released a statement saying they wanted some time to "evaluate and work on their marriage".

Speaking to Event magazine in 2015, Michael admitted: "We had a little bump in the road. The problem in this business is that everything is so public. I love Catherine as much, more than I ever have. And hopefully the feeling’s mutual. We worked things out – if both people want to work something out and make it better, you can do it. You can’t do it if it's just one person."

Catherine also commented on the couple's 25-year age difference, explaining: "We're just very good with one another, we respect each other, and I never really feel that he's 25 years older than me. I remember people saying, 'When you're 50, he's going to be 75.' Well, that’s just maths."

Catherine and Michael welcomed their first child, Dylan, now 22, and the then three-month-old was present for their wedding that November. In April 2003, they welcomed their daughter, Carys, now 20.
