She went on to say: "I've been waking up to Mike for nearly 25 years. I love being married but it's a crazy thing when you really think about it. Will you marry me? Sure! But then you think about the Chanel purse you spent a fortune on, and actually I don't really like it any more – I'll put it up for resale."

The duo tied the knot in November 2000

In 1999, Michael and Catherine started dating and they went on to tie the knot in November 2000. Although the couple experienced many ups and downs throughout their marriage - including a six-month split in 2013 - they have remained tight as ever.

Elsewhere in the interview, the Oscar-winning Chicago star addressed the couple's 25-year age difference. "We'll walk around a golf course together for four hours at a time. We have a lot of serious similarities too. We were born on the same day, 25 years apart.

"We're just very good with one another, we respect each other, and I never really feel that he's 25 years older than me. I remember people saying, 'When you're 50, he's going to be 75.' Well, that's just maths."

The loved-up couple live in Westchester County, New York, along with their children Dylan, 22, and Carys, 19. Aside from Carys and Dylan, Michael also has another son, Cameron, 43, from his first marriage to Diandra Luker.
