The matchup between Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas

THE LOWDOWN The now 57-year-old actor/mogul saw the now 32-year-old starlet in a movie (”Zorro”) in 1998. He decided he had to meet her. He got her pregnant. They sold the first-look pictures of their newborn son to a British paper. He married her. They sold the official wedding pictures to People magazine. In other words, it’s your basic modern-day love story.

WE SAY Zeta-Jones was generating a nice amount of buzz on her own, thank you very much, before she merged with Douglas. But once she became Mrs. Hollywood Royalty, she was catapulted into an entirely new level of celebrity (which she seems to enjoy quite a bit). As for Michael, he gets a wife 30-some years younger and, let’s face it, far more attractive.

WHO WINS Zeta-Jones
