Michael Douglas says there's no crisis at home and he and wife Catherine Zeta-Jones "are fine" and taking a "temporary separation."

Of course. Couples always take months away from each other when everything is "fine."

Douglas spoke to The Associated Press on Monday in Berlin while promoting his Liberace film "Behind the Candelabra."

Responding to a media question, the actor said, "I have a crisis at home? No, I think the press has a crisis. We, we are fine. My wife and I are, are fine. We take a temporary separation, but the press, it gives you stuff to write about."

Well ... yeah. It's a living.

Zeta-Jones, 43, and Douglas, 68, married in 2000 and have two children. In recent years, Douglas has battled throat cancer while Zeta-Jones has had issue with bipolar disorder.
