Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones happily walked the red carpet for AARP's Movie for GrownUps Awards on Monday night in Beverly Hills, California, and spoke sweetly about one another to ET as they looked back on their successful acting careers and nearly 16 years of marriage.

When asked to name the highlight of his life in the entertainment industry, Douglas gushed, "Right now, it would probably be the Deauville Film Festival in 1999 when I met Catherine. That was the best memory I got."

Zeta-Jones couldn't recall her favorite career moment, but her 71-year-old husband reminded her the high she felt when she won an Academy Award in 2003 for her role in Chicago. "Oscar wasn't bad, honey," Douglas told his wife. "Your Oscar wasn't too bad."

However, the 46-year-old actress said it was welcoming her two children, Carys Zeta Douglas and Dylan Michael Douglas, into the world that was her all-time high. "I think giving birth to two of my kids, and him (Douglas) being the first one to hold them was pretty amazing," she recalled.

While Douglas and Zeta-Jones have three Oscars between them, they joked that their teenage daughter and son aren't impressed. "They're teenagers, so they think we're very dumb right now," Zeta-Jones quipped, adding, "And then they'll grow up and go, 'Boy, they learned quick.'"
