"Really, the change happened during the pandemic, which was: we have an opportunity to protect our relationship by spending some time apart, and I think we should do that.

"We spent more time together than apart, but we do have several nights a week where we're talking to each other like this [online] and we get to do what we want, when we want. Both of us are exceedingly independent people."

The celebrity couple started dating in 2015

On the 32 years age gap between them, Sarah added: "I don't remember people going nuts about Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, in terms of their age difference."

Holland, meanwhile, opened up about her surprise at the public's interest in her love life.

"It was hard for me at first to go through that membrane of being a private person. But it’s been good for me to do it in such a lovely way."
