Zeta-Jones called a diva for dumping agent

Knight Ridder Newspapers
February 10, 2004

Catherine Zeta-Jones was told by husband Michael Douglas that she could win another Oscar only by dumping her longtime William Morris agent, George Freeman, for Creative Artists Agency's Bryan Lourd, reports The New York Post. So she did it.

The move stunned Hollywood as Freeman had represented Zeta-Jones for 10 years, and was her "very best friend," a Hollywood insider said. "They went on vacations together. He made her."

"It is shocking," said another source. "George took this little-known British actress that no one cared about and made her into an Oscar winner. She is an ungrateful diva who has not had a career misstep and it is inconceivable that she would screw George like this. He just got her $10 million for 'Zorro II.' "

The source added: "A lot of this was Michael's doing. He pecked away at Catherine, saying, 'Why didn't you get this part? Why didn't you get that part?' "

Part of the problem is that Zeta-Jones is jealous of Nicole Kidman's career.

"Nicole gets first look at every script," the source said. "Catherine doesn't. Nicole and Catherine had very similar careers until Nicole's divorce from Tom Cruise. Then audiences found her sympathetic. No one finds Catherine a very sympathetic character or as likable."

But a friend of Zeta-Jones said: "Listen, George is a nice guy, but after she won her Oscar for 'Chicago,' he didn't get her any work."
