Standing by her man ... Zeta-Jones and Douglas.

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

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

"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).
