(Newser) – Catherine Zeta-Jones has confirmed the gossip, kind of: She and husband Michael Douglas "are taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage," her spokesperson tells the AP. Rumors first started circulating earlier this week, but People ran a story this morning claiming the couple—married 13 years but not photographed together since April—had decided to separate. All the recent stress (cancer, bipolar disorder...) "has taken a toll on their marriage," a friend says, but neither has actually moved for a legal separation or divorce.
