Flushed With Love

‘“CATHERINE Zeta Jones needs no introduction,” says OK! at the start to an interview headed: “CATHERINE ZETA JONES.”

‘We’ll put this in the little boys’ room’

We are promised “INTIMATE DETAILS OF MARRIED LIFE WITH MICHAEL” and that her “KIDS AREN’T HOLLYWOOD BRATS”.

This causes us to confront two questions: 1) How intimate are these details? 2) If the kids aren’t Hollywood brats then what kind of brats are they?

First things first. Beneath a picture of Catherine and George Clooney looking well matched, there’s a shot of Catherine and her husband of eight years standing, Michael Douglas.

And what is the secret of Catherine and Michael’s success? “Separate bathrooms is always a really good idea!” says Catherine. And this is not because Michael has one of those bathtubs you access via a door and sit in while the water fills up around you Titanic style, but because Catherine is so messy. “I’d hate for my husband to realise how cluttery I can be!”” says Catherine.

With a marriage founded on love and his ‘n’ her commodes, the couple’s two children, Dylan and Carys, must be secure and happy?

“They’re certainly not Hollywood brats by any stretch of the imagination,” says Catherine. They can’t be – they live in Bermuda. And, in any case, they are “good kids”.

Like Catherine and Michael, the children are grounded. “My husband and I are very similar in that way we treat people the way we want to be treated,” say Catherine, who may or may not like to remember how Michael behaved while married to Diandra Luker. As Diandra once said: ‘The other women were difficult to deal with.’

Of course things are so very different the second time around. Michael’s not going to flush this romance down the toilet – his or Catherine’s…’
