The Michael Douglas divorce rumors have been circulating after news broke that the couple had decided to separate. On Aug. 31, MSN reported that Douglas is still wearing his wedding ring -- which is a great sign. The actor attended the 39th annual Deauville American Film Festival on Friday and many noticed that he was wearing the ring even though he and Catherine Zeta-Jones are taking some time away from one another.
"People have been kindly asking how I'm doing. Well, I put on a suit tonight - one that I can't come close to buttoning - so everything must be OK," Douglas said while addressing the crowd.
Michael Douglas' divorce might still go through but many people feel that he and Zeta-Jones will end up working things out. If they were both ready to throw in the towel, Douglas might have left his ring at home. On the flip side, a wedding ring can be a way for a person to hold on to something even if things are already over. It's hard to tell whether or not Douglas' wearing of the wedding ring actually meant that he isn't thinking about an official split from his wife.
Interestingly enough, the festival is actually where Douglas first laid eyes on Zeta-Jones many, many moons ago. Perhaps he was feeling a bit reminiscent. Either way, his wife had to have been on his mind.
