Catherine Zeta-Jones has vowed to stay with husband Michael Douglas for life, because she's "repulsed" by the idea of divorce, reports IMDB.com.

The Welsh beauty, 34 - who married 59-year-old Douglas in 2000 - insists it's not in her nature to quit.

"I find divorces repulsive," she said. "I will never get divorced, never."

She credits her upbringing for her philosophy on the subject, adding: "I grew up in a small, strictly Catholic fishing village on the coast of Wales.

"The people there have a different attitude to life than those in Hollywood - people stick together more. It's in the genes.

"Look at other stars who have come from my area: Tom Jones has been married to his Linda for 47 years, and Richard Burton never really got over Elizabeth Taylor."

Meanwhile, Douglas' ex-wife Diandra Douglas is reportedly planning to write a revealing autobiography, detailing her life with the actor.

The pair divorced in 2000 after 23 years of marriage - a move that cost Douglas a reported $US64 million ($A92.89 million).
