Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas are celebrating a special marriage milestone in 2020 as it marks their 20th anniversary.

However, there will be no sign of any lavish, star-studded party according to Zeta-Jones, 50, who has divulged that she will be allowing her 75-year-old spouse to kiss her instead as the occasion comes while the coronavirus remains a concern.

"We won't be doing any great big party," the Chicago actor told People. "Not that I'm a big party fan anyway.

"It would be nice to get all our friends together in one space, but we're not doing that until we're completely out of the woods. So I will raise my mask and let my husband passionately kiss me, then I will put it firmly back on."

Douglas and Zeta-Jones, who share a 25 year age gap, were married at the Plaza Hotel in New York on 18 November 2000.

They had welcomed son Dylan Michael in August of that year and went on to have daughter Carys Zeta in 2003. The couple split briefly in 2013 before reconciling the following year.

Zeta-Jones' father-in-law Kirk Douglas passed away in February at the age of 103 with the Darling Buds of May star going on to share a touching tribute.

Posting a photo of her kissing the Hollywood legend on the cheek she wrote: "To my darling Kirk, I shall love you for the rest of my life. I miss you already. Sleep tight…."

Last year, on the occasion of her 19th anniversary, the mother-of-two shared a letter she and her husband had received from Douglas Snr.

It read: “Dear Michael and Catherine, Happy anniversary!

“Michael, you have learned a very important lesson, to stay married you must obey your wife! Keep practicing what I do with my wife.”
