Just when I thought it was impossible to love Catherine Zeta Jones more than I do . . . I read this new article entitled “I Love Older Men”, something that I share with CZJ. Always loved Catherine and Michael together.
Catherine Zeta-Jones has reportedly claimed that she is not attracted to younger men.
The Rebound star, who has been married to actor Michael Douglas, 25 years her senior, since 2000, has insisted that she finds younger men to be “selfish” and “narcissistic”, Perez Hilton reports.
The 40-year-old actress said: “I know that young men are more unbiased, playful and firmer. There’s no question about that. But they are also more selfish and narcissistic. This is why they never had a chance to go out with me.
“I need a man who is sensitive and caring. Someone who is superior to me and I can lean on. But that doesn’t mean that I fancy old and fat men.”
Zeta-Jones also said that she and her 65-year-old husband have never had an issue with the age gap in their relationship.
She added: “He knows exactly what he wants and what life is about. That impresses me. But Michael can also be a real softy. He sends me flowers and cries when his kids say something particularly pathetic.
“We didn’t care about the age gap from the beginning on. We relied more on our emotions and feelings. It was like that and it should always be like that.”
What do you think about age gaps?
While I was writing my review for Nine (and even watching it) I was trying not to compare it to Chicago. Mainly because I love Chicago and it is one of my favorite films ever, so to compare another musical directed by Rob Marshall on one viewing would not be very fair. So I have decided to take a deeper look into both movies and not really say which one is better, but to show comparisons.
Two of my absoloute favorite actresses are going to be starring in “A Little Night Music” which starts later this month for press viewing. Broadway Legend Angela Lansbury and making her Broadway Debut Oscar winner Catherine Zeta Jones. I would just love to be able to get to New York to see this, would be a fantastic experience. Here are a couple of pictures from a meet and great held in New York on Friday.
I have just been reading about Cleo which is apparently in pre-production with Steven Soderberg directing and Catherine Zeta Jones as the title role Cleo, and Ray Winstone is currently set to play Julias Caeser. It is down to be a drama and musical, which I think will be very interesting.
So far I am very excited about this as love all three of those mentioned above. So hopefully more news will come out soon especially about filming starting would be good, and even pictures from on-set would also be a big plus with it all. It sounds like it will be a very good role for Catherine to take on.
Catherine Zeta Jones helped pay tribute to her husband Michael Douglas, by joining the cast of “A Chorus Line” on stage. Jack Nicholson was there too, which makes me smile even more.
In 6th place is none other than an actor who made a transistion from TV star to movie star . . . the one and only George Clooney !!!!
As you may know by now I totally love Catherine Zeta Jones, so for the trailer for her new movie “The Rebound” has made me happy. I also really love romantic comedies, I will be happy watching Catzy
Into the top 50 !!!
Starting to get good now . . . OOOO wait it has been good all the way along . . .
Wow go Catherine . . . if only she would film more movies !!!
Hollywood actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is branching out into commercials – she filmed a hair-raising motorcycle chase for a seven-minute shampoo advert.
The Mask of Zorro star plays the part of a lab technician who steals a “youth-enhancing elixir” in the commercial for Lux shampoo, before zooming away with a handsome mystery man.
She is later seen showing off her newly washed hair at a party, before a confrontation with security guards over the stolen suds.
The subtitled ad, produced by Unilever, will be screened in cinemas across Japan and China and is already available to view online.
Unilever executive Enzo Devoto says, “By getting into the world of movies, rather than just having movie stars in our ads, which our competitors do too, we can draw consumers closer to the brand.
“When you’re watching a movie and on comes an advertisement trying to hard-sell a product, it’s pretty much interrupting your entertainment. Our project is completely different.”
I am a huge fan of musicals. I love going to see shows at the theatre and have seen shows on the West End and Broadway. So therefore I absoloutly adore movie versions of musicals. I have decided to do a countdown of my current top 10 movie musicals. I have actually found this list very hard to complete, as just having a top 10 was very difficult for me. But I managed to get it sorted in the end, haha. I kept remembering about different movies and probably will realise later that I have missed a favorite out. But never mind, I could always re-do this list in a few months.
I decided to do a list of 10 movie quotes that really mean something to me and I really relate to with how I feel about love, a certain man and life in general. I probably have posted most of these quotes on the blog at some point, but that just shows how much I love them,
“Sometimes I wish I had never met you. Because then I could go to sleep at night not knowing that there is someone like you out there.” (Good Will Hunting) -
While I love this quote, I more love that it kinda explained how I felt about someone a while ago. I always feel it is mis-quoted in terms of how it is said in the movie, as it is not said between two people who love each other. It is about Will Hunting (Matt Damon) being so brilliant.
“I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life, the way I feel when I’m with you.” (Dirty Dancing)
Dang this hit me very hard when I watched the movie recently as it was totally how I felt when I left to come to the USA when I kinda said goodbye to someone. Although we did not say bye as such . . . but that whole moment in Dirty Dancing is totally how I felt.
“After all . . . tomorrow, is another day.” (Gone with the Wind)
I think this is always important to remember. That no matter how bad things are, tomorrow is another day (and hopefully a change in fortune?)
Awww poor Catzy !!!
Welsh beauty Catherine Zeta-Jones has been nursing her husband Michael Douglas back to health – while making daily trips to the hospital for her own ailments.
Douglas recently underwent knee replacement surgery, and Zeta-Jones has been taking care of him while he recovers at their Bermuda home.
And the Entrapment star has nothing but praise for the staff at their local hospital on the tropical island, who have been helping her with sinus problems for the last four weeks.
She says, “I have been at the hospital for so many days with my sinus problems and I must say they have done a good job. I’m telling you, I have been there every day for the last four weeks, but now I feel fine.”
Awwww I think thats really good that he done that for Catherine. But also that she told him, she would not allow him to stray. Love MD and Catzy <3
Michael Douglas put an end to his womanising ways when he started dating Catherine Zeta-Jones – because the actress told him she would not tolerate infidelity.
The 64-year-old actor married Zeta-Jones, 39, in 2000 and they now have two children together.
And Douglas, who was previously wed to Diandra Luker, admits when he first began dating the Entrapment star she made him promise to become a one-woman man.
He tells America’s Parade magazine, “The night I really fell for Catherine she told me, ‘I know you’re a single guy and you’re entitled to do what you want. But if we’re going to continue this, then I just want to start with a clean deck. It’s got to be just me.’”
And Douglas was so impressed with his girlfriend’s honesty he immediately ended all of his other romances.
He adds, “I had to go upstairs and make a few phone calls to clear the decks and start fresh. But I’m not ‘fessing up to how many calls I made.”
Awww poor Michael, hope he recovers quickly.
Veteran actor Michael Douglas is recovering from surgery after having his knee replaced.
The Basic Instinct star, 64, found himself limping around on the set of his forthcoming film Solitary Man and was instructed by doctors to go under the knife to remedy the problem.
He says, “I had my knee replaced, I have an artificial knee. A little bit of Pvc, plastic pipes with titanium rods. It’s four weeks old.
“I had a skiing accident years and years ago and it just wore down. It finally got to a point where I had a limp and I had to do it. So it’s four weeks old. I’ve got another couple of months (of recovery) but I’ll be fine.”
Douglas is already back on his feet and he credits his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones with helping to make his recovery all the more comfortable.
He adds, “She turned out to be fantastic, it’s like a test to see how good your wife is, but she’s been fantastic. But I couldn’t get her into the nurse’s outfit!”
But Douglas’ father, legendary actor Kirk Douglas, wasn’t so kind and poked fun at his injury: “After this fairly serious operation, I go see him and he said, ‘How you doing?’ and I said, ‘Pretty good dad’, and he goes, ‘You know, when I had my double knee replacement, I was 88!’”
Come on babe, why don’t we paint the town . . . and All That Jazz !!!
Best Picture winner in 2003, and rightly so. Chicago really did mark the return of the musical. Showstopping and so entertaining.
Moving onto my other favorite actress. And All That Jazz. I love Chicago, I love Velma Kelly, I love Catherine. Her reaction to winning, “The Scotsman giving the Welshgirl”. Fantastic !!! Go Britain !!! I think its such a good little speech.
So Michael Douglas was one of the suprise presenters and I was happy. I love Michael. I was hoping Catherine Zeta Jones would be with him, but it looks like he took his father Kirk Douglas as his date to the Vanity Fair after show party.
Catherine Zeta Jones character Amelia explains her waiting
“I’ve been waiting my whole life, I just don’t know what the hell for.”
