The answer to your question about Douglas and Jones can be answered by one of Tom Cruise's characters (Vanilla Sky), which used to be my tagline on this forum: "My father wrote about this in his book. Chapter 1... Page 1... Paragraph 1: What is the answer to 99 out of 100 questions?... Money." And now you know.
I understand the whole money aspect, but she's got enough where that shouldn't play a factor anymore. She signed the lucrative contract hawking cingular and she must make millions of dollars from each one of her movies. I googled it up, and this was what I found: Catherine Zeta Jones is worth Â£36m in her own right, which is calcuated to be worth around 65M dollars. She earns more than Â£8million a year in advertising and has a personal property portfolio of Â£3million. I don't doubt that Michael Douglas is even richer since he was a producer and movie star for much longer. But, at that point, you'd figure Catherine Zeta Jones could be a sugar moma in her own right. Or, at least, marry somebody as rich but not old enough to be her father. She could have her pick of any man out there. And, let's just say, that without makeup, Michael Douglas isn't quite as handsome as he used to be. Although, she doesn't sound like a very nice person. She told Vanity Fair that she weaned her son off of breast-feeding after a couple of months because she was tired of being a "milking machine."
