Michael Douglas Loves His Wife 'More Than Ever'

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are still going strong.
The "Wall Street" actor told the Daily Mail's Event Magazine that he loves his wife of nearly 15 years more than ever, despite what he called "a little bump in the road."

In 2013, Douglas went against his basic instinct and gave an interesting interview to the Guardian -- he linked his tongue cancer to HPV "which actually comes about from cunnilingus."

Many took that to mean he got cancer from giving his wife oral sex -- the two separated shortly after, but Douglas says it was for other reasons.

Douglas has now clarified those comments to Event, saying, "I was trying to make a public service comment. It was one of those things ... and I so regretted any embarrassment that it caused Catherine. And her family."

The 70-year-old has since beaten his cancer and says it gave him a whole new look on life and love.

"It feels like a rebirth after you go through cancer and you come out of it. You feel like you're a child. You see priorities differently. You have a much deeper appreciation of marriage, of your children -- you see everything a little bit clearer, and a little brighter ... I love Catherine as much, more than I ever have... We worked things out -- if both people want to work something out and make it better, you can do it. You can't do it if it's just one person."
