"I only actually eat real food because I have to right now. My dream is to only eat desserts, ever. It's a goal."

Catherine and her husband Michael Douglas share two children together, son Dylan Michael Douglas, 20, and daughter Carys Zeta Douglas, 17. And it seems mealtimes are a family affair in their household at their home in Westchester County, New York.

"I'm a big kind of European, three meals a day [person]," she added. "In the whole lockdown, I relished having my kids and my husband here for breakfast, lunch and dinner."

Meanwhile, the actress has previously spoken about her passion for dance as a way to keep fit before, telling The Telegraph: "I have a ballet barre in my gym.
