Michael Douglas Totally Blew His First Chance With Catherine Zeta-Jones
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Michael Douglas has revealed how his initial attempt at wooing his now-wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, didn’t go exactly to plan. The Hollywood legend recounted on “The Jonathan Ross Show” the moment that he told the Welsh star that he would be the father of her children — within just half an hour of first talking to her. “It sounded good,” said Douglas, in footage due to be aired in the United Kingdom on Saturday night. But Zeta-Jones wasn’t impressed. “She said, ‘You know, I’ve heard a lot about you and I’ve seen a lot about you and I think it’s time that I say goodnight,’” Douglas recalled. He thought he’d “totally blown” his opportunity with Zeta-Jones. So Douglas sent roses and an apology on to the hotel in Scotland where she was staying the following evening. It all worked out OK, in the end. The couple went on to marry in 2000 and later have two children. Their marriage has also survived a temporary split in 2013. Sometimes Hollyw...

Meryl Streep On The Biggest Surprise Of Her Career
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Meryl Streep is one of the most revered actresses of all time, and yet, the 66-year-old revealed she wasn't always sure her career would enjoy such longevity. The actress made the comments while speaking about diversity in Hollywood at a panel at the Berlin Film Festival, which kicked off last week.  "I always felt that my career was over starting at 38 years of age," Streep said. "Every year after that, I’d always say, I’d better take this because, you know … in those days I had no reason to imagine that I would have a career past 40." That would have been in the late '80s. Streep's career, however, has only gone from strength to strength since then, with nearly a dozen Oscar nominations since 1990, and a win for her portrayal as the late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady." "You could work up to 40 and then you’d start playing hags and witches. It’s one of the reasons I didn’t play a witch until ‘Into the Woods’ -- and I had been offered many. It ...
