The interviewer asked Michael Douglas' wife in the clip: "Eight shows a week though, how are you able to maintain that level of performance?" to which she replied: "It's not really nerves, it's a feeling of excitement really.

"I know if I don't calm myself down then I go on that stage going 'bleugh' and people won't know what I am talking about!"
