A telling picture...

... of a 62-year-old man with his 37-year-old wife.

UPDATE: They seem to have taken down the picture, but you can see a tiny thumbnail of it here. It's Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas.

Ann,

Your description is brief and efficient but there's no link to follow the story...

Ann Althouse said...

LOL. Sorry. Fixed.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Zeta-Jones is sorry? Douglas is fixed?

Didn't you mean a chick drawing the last bit of substance out of an ATM?

Ignacio said...

ann, your comment seems snarky and uncalled-for. anyone in public life can have a picture taken with a less-than-flattering expression on their face. this is why publicists try to control photos and why paparazzi seem like such scum.

'We go out together, and they just print the pictures of her.'

I'm not complaining, anyone else?

I don't think Mike Douglas looks that bad in that picture, I have seen pictures of him at the beach that would frighten small children. CZJ is younger than I am and she is married to someone my dad's age, he is an old timer.

I suppose it is surprising that the marriage has been intact for as long as it has, since both of them have trampy reputations. Douglas is an admitted sexaholic and I read rumours that Jones slept around to advance her career.

The link didn't work for me, so instead I read about the guy whose genitals got caught in a sawmill.

The editor posted a picture of a fluffy white bunny to help take your mind off the story.

Peter Palladas said...

The spokesman maintained that the man's injuries were not serious. Which is easy for him to say.

Too frigging true, fluffy bunny or no fluffy bunny!

I read rumours that Jones slept around to advance her career.

I'm trying to think of an actress I haven't heard that about. I think it's like Tom Cruise being gay: More wishful thinking/sour grapes than anything.

Michael Douglas is my hero; I just hope that when I'm 67, I can land a babe half as hot. (No kids though, halfway through that ordeal and no desire to repeat it.)

(Actually, I've never understood the appeal of Douglas to women. Pierce Brosnan, yes, Michael Douglas, no. Oh and I wish I could have slept around to advance my career, but I'm not gay and neither were any of my bosses.)

I don't understand the appeal of Douglas.

Ewww.

But! When faced with the proof (proof I tell you!) I figure that these fellows I find so repulsive must make it with personality. Somehow. That must not come through on television even when they aren't following a script. Or something.
