It looks like it's back on!

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones certainly didn't look like a separated couple Monday night at the Chaplin Award Gala in NYC. Douglas, 69, and his 44-year-old wife held hands as they walked the red carpet, making their third joint public appearance together in two weeks.

The parents of an 11-year-old daughter, Carys, and 13-year-old son, Dylan, took a break from their 13-year marriage last August. However, just this month, they've stepped out together in the Big Apple looking very much like a couple for the opening night of a play and to see Meryl Streep honored at the Monte Cristo Awards.

Douglas has been vocal about wanting to work things out with Zeta-Jones. (Can you blame him? She's gorgeous.)

"Sometimes people take a little bit of a break, but it doesn't necessarily mean that's the end," he said on "Live With Kelly and Michael" in November. "I'm very hopeful."

He obviously had reason to be.
