Catherine Zeta-Jones Looks Years Younger at 'Red 2' Premiere

Catherine Zeta-Jones appears to have found the fountain of youth, as evidenced by red carpet photos from the Los Angeles premiere of 'Red 2' Thursday night.

The 43-year-old actress was rocking a stunning black strapless Maria Lucia Hohan gown that featured a lace front slit that showed off her legs to perfection.

We can't quite put our finger on what Zeta-Jones may have done to change up her look - but she looks younger and perhaps thinner than we've seen her recently.

The first photo in our gallery is a side by side comparison of the actress in July 2013 vs January 2013.   Her eyes appear less puffy and her jaw line looks wider to our untrained eye.

Her handsome leading man hubby, Michael Douglas, was missing in action.  According to Zeta-Jones, he is currently filming 'And So It Goes' with Diane Keaton in Connecticut.

She seemed to take the absence of her spouse in stride but lamented, "My children are actually at sleep-away camp, so I'm missing them desperately."  She was referring to the couples daughter Carys, 10, and son Dylan, 12.

Douglas caused embarrassment for his wife last month when he said during an interview that his throat cancer was caused by HPV, a sexually transmitted disease.

His rep quickly issued this statement of clarification: "Michael Douglas did not say cunnilingus was the cause of his cancer.  It was discussed that oral sex is a suspected cause of certain oral cancers, but he did not say it was the specific cause of his personal cancer."

'Red 2' hits theaters on July 19, 2013.
