London: Michael Douglas has revealed that his wife/actress Catherine Zeta Jones did a nude photo-shoot to mark her 40th birthday and their 10th wedding anniversary.

The `Basic Instinct` star said he was proud that her spouse, who had spent months in period costume for a Broadway show, still looked stunning.

"Those pictures were hot," a news daily quoted Douglas, as saying.

"I think she wanted to show the other side for a bit. They were just awesome pictures.

He added: "She doesn`t make it a regular thing - it`s been at least ten years - so I was very proud."

The couple is now headed to the actress` family home in Wales with their children- Dylan, nine, and Carys, seven- for a summer holiday.

Douglas added, "They have a great time and it keeps them aware of their Welsh roots."
