Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones Separate: Was Their Age Difference a Factor?

We sure didn't see this separation coming!

On Wednesday's edition of Live From E!, Jason Kennedy, Ken Baker and Ali Fedotowsky discussed the surprise breakdown of Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones' relationship.

According to a rep for the actress, the couple is simply "taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage." 

But after 13 years of marriage, the panel had to wonder if the couple's 15-year age difference played a part in the couple's troubles. "The stress has taken a toll on their marriage," a friend told People magazine.

The CNN host is confident he will hear from the family very soon. "I'm not sure he's quite worked out what his explanation is yet," Morgan said. "So we've decided to postpone it. We are going to get the first interview."
