Nothing brings people together like buckets full of candy. Two months after announcing that they were "taking some time apart," Michael Douglas and wife Catherine Zeta-Jones reunited for a very special family activity: trick-or-treating with kids Dylan, 13, and Carys, 10, in upstate New York on Halloween.

Douglas revealed the outing during an appearance on Live With Kelly & Michael on Friday, Nov. 1, to promote his new film, Last Vegas. "My son Dylan was a Hobbit, my daughter Carys was a kind of flapper, and Catherine was Snow White," he told the hosts.

And he was? "I was late. I grabbed a mask at the store, it said Mike Meyers on it, and I said, 'I don't remember this character that Mike Myers did,'" the Oscar winner explained. "Then I walked around and everyone said it was Michael Meyers, who killed everyone [in the Halloween flicks]."

Together since 1999 and married since 2000, Douglas, 68, and Zeta-Jones, 43, announced in late August that they were taking some time apart to "evaluate and work on their marriage." In recent days, however, the Behind the Candelabra actor has seemed optimistic about their future.

Asked about their relationship in an interview with Jay Leno just last week, the star hinted that things were taking a turn for the better. "I've been away for a while, but everything should hopefully be on the up and up," he shared. "Sometimes people take a little bit of a break, but it doesn't necessarily mean that's the end. So I'm very hopeful."
