‘I don’t stand for any s**t from them!’ Catherine Zeta-Jones admits she ‘snaps’ at her family a lot… as a result of having to be ‘gracious’ to fans who approach her in public all the time

  • Coronavirus symptoms: what are they and should you see a doctor?

Catherine Zeta-Jones has admitted that she has little patience when it comes to her family – as a result of being so nice to her fans in public.

The movie star – who is currently self-isolating amid the coronavirus crisis with her husband Michael Douglas, 75, and their children Dylan, 19, and Carys, 16, – told fans on Instagram live: ‘[it’s] all part of the [film] business but there’s a lot of effort one puts into being nice to total strangers… not getting p****d off when someone comes up to you while you’re having dinner.’

Catherine, 50, went on: ‘We spend time being nice and polite and gracious to people and then sometimes you go snap to the people you live with.

‘The people you are closest to in the world, you don’t stand for any s**t, the little things.

‘If a total stranger had said or done that, you would probably be very nice and wouldn’t flip your lid.

She also shed some light on life in the Douglas household during COVID-19 isolation, comparing it to her childhood Christmases in Wales.

Revealing that she and the family have been playing pool and board games at their New York home, she said: ‘I feel like I’ve gone back in time to my nana’s house!’

This comes after Catherine revealed this weekend that she waited almost 20 years to look at the photographs from her 2000 wedding to Michael.

It was one of the biggest showbiz weddings ever and pictures of it were at the centre of a £1 million court battle, and Catherine said of the snaps: ‘I looked at the proofs and that was it – I never made an album.

‘The photographer got in touch recently, so about three weeks ago I got to see all my wedding photographs. It was a wonderful day.’

Catherine and Michael tied the knot at New York’s Plaza Hotel in November 2000 in front of guests including Michael Caine, Sean Connery and Brad Pitt. The couple struck a £1 million photo deal with OK! for exclusive rights. 

However, rival magazine Hello! published some secretly taken shots, which sparked a High Court battle, during which Catherine gave evidence. Eventually, Hello! paid out more than £1 million. 

Catherine – nicknamed Dame Doom by her husband because of her moments of insecurity – said at one point, a host of people were singing around the piano when she realised the pianist had vanished. 

After asking about his whereabouts, a man replied: ‘He’s gone home, Mrs Douglas, it’s 6am!’ She added: ‘I didn’t know what time it was. I couldn’t tell you it was daylight outside – it was like Vegas. I got on the piano!’
