Talking to Wall Street Journal, the 51-year-old spoke about her healthy lifestyle and diet choices.

Catherine said: "When I get really old I'm going to start taking a lot of vitamins because I only want to be able to eat dessert for the rest of my life.

"I only actually eat real food because I have to right now. My dream is to only eat desserts, ever. It's a goal."

“I always eat breakfast; I’m not one of those people who can skip it,” she continued. “I have a go-to breakfast that happens every day.”

She also spoke about her family life with husband Micheal Douglas and her two children, son Dylan Michael Douglas, 20, and daughter Carys Zeta Douglas, 17, and revealed food is a big thing in their house.

"I'm a big kind of European, three meals a day [person]," she said. "In the whole lockdown, I relished having my kids and my husband here for breakfast, lunch and dinner."

The actress has previously spoken about how important it is to her that she stays hydrated. Speaking to W Magazine back in 2017, she said the key to being beautiful inside and out was drinking plenty of water.

“Water, maintaining my PH balance, no alcohol and through diet keeping my body free of any inflammation inside and out,” she said.

A fitness fan, the actress who now lives in Westchester County in New York has also previously spoken about her work-out routine.

Talking to The Telegraph, she said: "I have a ballet barre in my gym.

"I turn the music up so loud that the walls are pulsating, and I go for it for an hour. I also hula-hoop, walk on the treadmill, do the elliptical [machine]. I try to keep the whole body working."
