"See that man over there? He's a movie star, and I get to sleep with him every night."

Catherine Zeta-Jones "can't believe [she] said something as crass as that," which she did, looking gorgeous and genuinely surprised, as she accepted the Tony award she won last night.

The reciprocal makes more sense.

TRO said...

If her acting was as good on stage as it was upon hearing she won, she certainly deserved the Tony.

As to seeing how slowly her movie star huband moved to stand-up, I'm thinking she means sleep in the literal sense.

traditionalguy said...

Bravo! Bravo! Wales performers are naturally talented, it seems.

I think that's kind of cute. Marriages would be better off if more women were being so crass about their affections for their husbands. (Mine's not a movie star, but I'm still thrilled to death to get to sleep w/ him every night!)

She obviously did not have a speech prepared. And it make it better.

Kirstin said...

Much better than Sandra Bullock talking about kissing Meryl Streep.

Daniel Fielding said...

Shows she aint nuttin' but a rich 'ho.

A person with even a low IQ wouldnt say something as crass

Rich B said...

She probably gets to see him nod off during the day, too, but it's not a shared pleasure.

Roux said...

She's beautiful and can do no wrong in my eyes. My brother-in-law is working on the audio production with her and says she's great.

MadisonMan said...

I think my head would be spinning if I won a Tony Award, and that would make it hard to monitor what came out of my mouth.

prairie wind said...

What is it about Michael Douglas that makes my skin crawl? I used to love him when he was in Streets of San Francisco. But now? Maybe his screen characters stick too much too him--Wall Street, Fatal Attraction...

I'm glad to hear (through Roux's very long grapevine) that Zeta-Jones is a nice person.

AJ Lynch said...

That line is an old one. The folks who I watched this with were disappointed she won. They had seen a few of the shows and thought there were far more talented performers than Zeta Jones.

A.Worthing said...

i remember someone once asked Douglas about criticism about him having a younger wife. he got a gleem in his eye and said, something like, "they just say that because I have her and they don't."

Its wrong on many levels, but it still makes me laugh.

kalmia said...

I don't think that what she said was so bad.

WV: reationa - someone who makes a big fuss about something someone says that wasn't so bad.

Tibore said...

Oh, man, she was totally channeling an honorary (i.e. not actually blood related, but rather someone close to the family) auntie of mine with her mannerisms on stage. That had me literally chuckling in my chair just now.

As an aside: Does Bebe Neuwirth not age or what?? She still looks the same as when she was on Cheers.

edutcher said...

We've all said things as dumb, if not dumber; nice to see she has sense enough to know it.

I was totally smitten with her when she did 'Zorro'. Mike, OTOH, is really starting to look like Dad.

And, yes, Bebe Neuwirth does look great.

You're a good woman.

Maybe the idea that he turned out to be just another Hollyweird roue and probably ought to be with someone a little closer to his own age.

WV "haircum" (I wouldn't dare...)

Catherine, You can do better than an old fart like him. Raise the bar and call me.

Skyler said...

I don't find that to be crass.

But boy has she gotten chunky.

Pogo said...

It's sweet and cute.
Good for her.

David said...

Chunky?

I would not mind a chunk of that.

Beautiful and normal--a fetching combination.

Psota said...

Speaking of Sandra Bullock; count down to Michael Douglas mistress(es) revelation in 3...2...1...

Windbag said...

She's talking about her husband. No big deal. Remember the fun libs poked at Bush for the video of him patting Laura's ass? At least we had a President patting his own wife's ass. They're married.

Hearing Zeta-Jones talking about sleeping with her husband is better than watching all those actors crawl into bed with Castro.

Big Mike said...

And all you have is Meade, Professor.

(I'll bet you think you have the better of the deal, and could be you're right.)

Iapetus said...

Chunky? That dress makes her look as big as a whale. Of course, as traditionalguy said, whale performers are naturally talented.

Windbag said...

Didn't Althouse once say that Michael Douglas' face reminded her of a scrotum? That seems a bit crass, compared to Zeta-Jones' comment.

HDHouse said...

I feel pretty...ohhhh so pretty.

LordSomber said...

To paraphrase Twain, "Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a beauty than to open it and remove all doubt".

Joseph said...

I didn't find that particularly crass. I thought it was a funny, endearing and somewhat self-deprecating way of recognizing her husband in what would otherwise be a boring and repetitive list of names.

dbp said...

I don't think Cathy Jones has chunked-up, it is the screen aspect. One way I can tell is that the CBS "eye" should be round, not oval.

Be said...

Gosh, this was sweet!

Younger women with talent who actually, honestly like Old, established b@stard-types aren't always into their partners just for the career. Sometimes they fall in love with a soul-second. (This couple has had some problems, too, if I remember correctly.)

Christy said...

Ah! What I heard was the pillow talk over the last few weeks, months, whatever. He is worried his career is waning; she needs to buff up his ego.

Peano said...

Why would anybody even watch this crap, let alone reprise it on the Internet?

knox said...

It was sweet?

"Chunky" looks pretty good on her, if you call that "chunky". Her face is a bit too plastic-surgeried though.

Skookum John said...

Crass? Please. That's well within the bounds of what's acceptable, and I think it's delightful. My wife says things like that about me from time to time, though I am no movie star.

If I were Douglas I'd be tickled as hell.

MadisonMan said...

I would rather have seen Barbara Cook win.

I never tire of hearing her sing Ice Cream. It's a Dairy State thing.

Paul said...

So he's a movie star, so what? Does the fact that that wrinkly, saggy old man is a movie star make him sexually desirable?

Hey, I had a little fling with Kathy Bates and you don't see me bragging about it everywhere I go.

danielhjackson said...

Ah--she's from Wales. That explains everything. Her quip is truly from her heart--Mum, Dad, and Hubby (who's a movie star ...). It's pretty straight from the heart. Thanks.

prairie wind said...

I'd guess that a little fling with Kathy Bates would be way more fun than a little fling with, oh, say, Angelina Jolie or Jennifer Anniston.
