Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas have been married for around 18 years now and the 74-year-old star recently got candid on the secret behind their beautiful and successful marriage and journey together.

During the Golden Globes press room event, in a quote shared by PEOPLE, Michael said that it helps that the couple is in the same industry. "I think the fact that we’re in the same industry really helps us to understand what is going on," he shared. "It was great for her to be here tonight and to share one of those nice things where your partner totally understands what’s going on."

"I flashed back to the time when she was pregnant with our daughter in Chicago and for all the shows growing up," he continued. Douglas seems super thrilled and happy at how well they are doing. "We celebrated our 18th anniversary recently, and besides, the genuine love only continues to grow," the star said. Earlier in the evening, Michael had won a Golden Globe for his role in 'The Kominsky Method'.

He also spoke about his children with Catherine — 18-year-old son Dylan and 15-year-old daughter Carys. "The joy of my marriage with Catherine and having our children at a point in my life where my career hadn’t developed, allowed me much more time to enjoy my family. The fact that all of them want to be actors — and they’re all good actors — makes it all enjoyable. They understand the whole system and principles. To see my father, Kirk [Douglas], as a third generation," Michael shared.

Catherine took to Instagram to share just how proud she was of her husband and shared a picture of his award and captioned it, "So so proud of my hubby."

While attending the prestigious awards, Catherine wore a stunning one-shoulder emerald green dress. The dress featured a thigh-high slit and also had detailing on the neckline. It also had a dramatic train attached. She finished off the look with a pair of champagne-colored Christian Louboutin heels. 

The pair was seen cuddling up to each other as they sat on a velvet green sofa with the mother-of-two sweetly kissing her husband.

Michael looked very sharp in a classic black tuxedo suit and proudly held his award. While giving his acceptance speech, he praised his wife and also his 102-year-old father Kirk Douglas. He also thanked his children for being supportive of him and allowing him to be away for a few months.

DeMille Award. He also won a Golden Globes Award in 1988 for Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for his work on 'Wall Street'.
