A massive fandom of mine over the years has been Catherine Zeta Jones (thanks to her Oscar-winning performance as Velma Kelly in Chicago). It’s actually quite brilliant that she is now on Instagram and it made me very happy to see her latest photo post wishing Michael Douglas a Happy Anniversary. I am a huge fan of the pair and the films they have been in so just had to post this photo as it really has made me all fangirly! Showing that things can really last in Hollywood!
Well it eventually happened one of my most favorite men ever is married and going to be a father, all this has been announced in the past week!!! Unfortunately he did not get to meet me and marry me etc! Like i’ve wanted since seeing fellowship of the ring in 2001 and first setting my eyes on Legolas. Thus began many years of total lust, which may long continue nothing can ever stop that, haha. Anyway I guess I have to say congratulations to Orlando on the news that he is going to be a father, one thing is for sure his child will be gorgeous!
Mae West has often been described as one of the more controversial movie stars of her day, West encountered many problems including censorship. This brings me to the main point in this blog post about an incredible actress and performer who was so obviously well before her time, in terms of the roles she was playing. Her characters did not play second best to men, and some of the lines she was given are still fantastic quotes to this day. She really was just incredible. When you put everything into context based on the way life was back in the day when West was delivering these controversial lines it really must have been quite shocking at the time! A lot of these lines would still be brilliant if thought up today.

That opening sentence just shows that I did indeed start this review the day after the film was released. It really was something I had been looking forward to since the first movie finished!

After the recent allegations that the most recent best actress Oscar winner Sandra Bullock’s husband Jesse James cheated on her. It got me thinking about the previous best actress winners and there relationships especially after Kate Winslet announcing her spilt from husband Sam Mendes earlier this week. Hilary Swank split from Chad Lowe not too long after she picked up her second best actress statue. So can men really not handle it if there wife is more successful than them or is it all just a coincidence?
The old-fashioned values and usual relationship rules are that the man is classed as the main earner and “looks” after his wife and children. But in Hollywood that is not often the case when a woman can easily be more successful than her husband. So lets venture down the road of successful actresses and have a comparison with relationships she has had, especially before and even after winning the highest accolade of an Oscar.

Oscar-winning couple of actress Kate Winslet and director Sam Mendes have today announced that they are splitting up and planning on getting a divorce. I was rather shocked by this but thinking back to the Oscars Sam was not with Kate. Are they another couple to fall to the 7 year itch?
I am a big fan of Kate and thought it looked like her and Sam were together for the long haul, the way they spoke about each other when they worked together on Revolutionary Road. They always appeared strong as a couple. But I guess we never know what goes on behind closed doors.

I wouldn’t usually make blog posts like this one but I am such a fan of Kate and wondering what others thought of this sad news?
Intertwining couples and singles in Los Angeles break-up and make-up based on the pressures and expectations of Valentine’s Day. Kinda like Love Actually but instead of Christmas and London . . . Valentine’s Day and LA.

Just when I thought it was impossible to love Catherine Zeta Jones more than I do . . . I read this new article entitled “I Love Older Men”, something that I share with CZJ. Always loved Catherine and Michael together.
Catherine Zeta-Jones has reportedly claimed that she is not attracted to younger men.
The Rebound star, who has been married to actor Michael Douglas, 25 years her senior, since 2000, has insisted that she finds younger men to be “selfish” and “narcissistic”, Perez Hilton reports.
The 40-year-old actress said: “I know that young men are more unbiased, playful and firmer. There’s no question about that. But they are also more selfish and narcissistic. This is why they never had a chance to go out with me.
“I need a man who is sensitive and caring. Someone who is superior to me and I can lean on. But that doesn’t mean that I fancy old and fat men.”
Zeta-Jones also said that she and her 65-year-old husband have never had an issue with the age gap in their relationship.
She added: “He knows exactly what he wants and what life is about. That impresses me. But Michael can also be a real softy. He sends me flowers and cries when his kids say something particularly pathetic.
“We didn’t care about the age gap from the beginning on. We relied more on our emotions and feelings. It was like that and it should always be like that.”
What do you think about age gaps?
