Catherine Zeta-Jones Responds to Michael Douglas' Statement Denying Pending Allegations

Catherine Zeta-Jones sits next to her co-star Juan Pablo Espinosa at the Cocaine Godmother panel during the A+E Networks’ 2018 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour on Sunday (January 14) in Pasadena, Calif.

Last week, Catherine‘s husband Michael Douglas released a statement after hearing about pending allegations that would be revealed against him by a former female employee.

At the event, Catherine was asked about Michael‘s decision to release the statement early.

“My reaction was that as two people who have been in this business — him longer than me — was that we support ‘Me Too’ and the movement more than anybody, anybody — me as a woman, him as a man. And there was no other way than to be preemptive in a story that had to be watched. He did a statement, he did it. I think it’s very clear the way that he stands. I cannot elaborate on something that’s so very personal to him,” Catherine said (via ET).

“We’re seeing changes that have taken many years to even be talked about. It’s an amazing time for women, and I really want women to remember how strong we are in numbers. This is going to die down. This is not going to be at the forefront of everyone’s mind forever and ever and we’re going to have to be kind to each other. We can’t ask everyone else to be kind to us unless we’re kind to each other,” she continued.

    She did walked into the stage hand in hand with Natalie Wood’s rapist Kirk Douglas, it’s clear she doesn’t care.

    The problem with his denial is a few years ago when he divorced Diandra, he said he was a sex addict and didn’t care how he got it, he needed sex. Even if it doesn’t end up true, what he said isn’t gonna help him.

    British tabloids made that story up. He went into rehab for alcohol abuse, following his stepdad’s death.

    You’re saying someone is guilty of a crime, when they have not been charged or convicted. This story comes from gossip sites. If you have evidence that this is true, take it to the police and get him charged.

    My Bad, he didn’t say the works sex addict. I looked it up and he actually said.

    “Sex is a wave that just sweeps over me,” he once admitted. “When the urge comes, I am helpless.”

    As for the rehab, yes he said it was for alcohol but the place was also known just as much for treating Sexual addiction and people who talked to an author who was doing a Bio on him said that was what it was for. The very fact that he threatened anyone who said the words with his lawyers says everything.

  • ShellBell

    In his own autobiography, he admits he used and groped women and slut shamed them. Plus at least one woman admitted he did attack her in an interview with the NY Times a few years back. Then there’s the Jean Spengler case where he all but made himself a suspect and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Even without the Natalie connection, his attitude to women over the years meant he should never have been allowed to go on that stage because of what the event was about.
