Michael Douglas can get saucy on the golf course!

On a recent appearance on The View, the Fatal Attraction star, 79, treated fans to a tidbit from inside his marriage to Catherine Zeta-Jones, 54.

Answering a question about what his wife makes him do when he loses a game of golf to her, Douglas simply said, “Whip it out. Drop the trou and whip it out.”

This isn’t the first time the actor has admitted to the strange arrangement with his wife. In 2023, The Guardian asked Douglas to clarify comments his wife had made on The Graham Norton Show in 2016 that she made her husband "take his pants off” if he didn’t hit the ball far enough.

The Ant-Man star gave a similar answer: "The rules are I have to whip it out if I don't hit it past the ladies' tees, which I manage most of the time.”

During his interview on The View this week, however, Douglas noted that Zeta-Jones has gone a bit easier on him as he’s gotten older.

“I’m going to be 80 now in September, so now I play off of ladies' tees, too. So I don’t have to do that anymore,” he said.

Naturally, The View’s Sara Haines followed up his response with another question. “Well, what does she have to do if she loses?” she asked.

“I don’t even want to know,” Whoopi Goldberg interjected before the actor had a chance to respond.

The recent comments come not long after the couple — who will celebrate 25 years of marriage next year — announced plans to sell their $12 million home in Irvington, New York. In a statement to The Wall Street Journal, Zeta-Jones explained it was time to list the 11,653 square-foot riverfront estate, saying, “Now that both our son and daughter have left the nest it seems like the right time to sell.”
