He’s never been one to avoid a question, and Michael Douglas welcomed the chance to give an update on his marriage during an interview on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Monday (October 21).

The “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” hunk told Leno that he feels “very hopeful” that things with his gorgeous wife [ Catherine Zeta-Jones] will work out after all.

Douglas noted, “Good, I hope. I’ve been away for a while but everything should hopefully be on the up and up.”

“Sometimes people take a little bit of a break, but it doesn't necessarily mean that's the end. I'm very hopeful,' added Michael.

Meanwhile, Douglas’ son Dylan is trying to bargain his way out of school and into an acting career- “I think it's great [he wants to be in the profession]. But I'm a little worried about this no school thing.”
