Olivera concluded their self-conducted interview by pitching Zeta-Jones a comical question of whether her or her husband would be a better treasure hunter in real life.

"My husband Michael Douglas," Zeta-Jones confidently replied, before slightly altering her answer. "After 22 years of marriage we're a double act, so I think we would do very well together because my attention to detail and I love reading books. But my husband is very good at logistics, so I'd have this fantastical plan of getting down a cliff toward a ski onto a rock and he'd go, 'Yeah but the time is up, so we're not going to be able to do that.' So together as a team we'd be a fantastic treasure-hunting couple."

The first two episodes of Disney+'s National Treasure: Edge of History will be available for streaming on Wednesday, December 14.
