Michael Douglas says relationship with Catherine Zeta-Jones is `up and up`

Los Angeles: Actor-producer Michael Douglas says he and his estranged wife Catherine Zeta-Jones are working on their relationship.

During an appearance on `Tonight Show with Jay Leno`, the `Behind the Candelabra` actor says that his relationship with Zeta-Jones "should hopefully be on the up and up", reported Aceshowbiz.

"Good I hope. I`ve been away for a while but everything should hopefully be on the up and up," he said.

The 69-year-old actor also told similar thing in an interview with E! news.

"Onwards and upwards," he had said when asked about his relationship with the `Red 2` actress.

Recently, a man who was said to be Douglas was reportedly spotted with Zeta-Jones in Greenwich, Connecticut, but the actor denied that it was him.

"I haven`t been home yet... I`ve been in New Mexico making a picture called `The Reach` for the last five weeks... So, I look forward to getting home, but that wasn`t me... Must`ve been a look alike."

In late August, representatives for both stars said that the couple was taking a break from their relationship.

"Catherine and Michael are taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage," they said. Douglas and Zeta-Jones have two children together, Dylan and Carys.
