Catherine Zeta-Jones was petrified during an appearance on comedian Lay Leno's chat show when she learnt that wild animal-loving Crocodile Hunter star Steve Irwin was also a guest.
According to Imdb, she apparently feared that she'd have to face snakes and rats. "You're lucky I haven't passed out because anything with bones and all that stuff... I'm not good with blood. Steve's on the show tonight and I just said to your researcher, 'Please don't say there's snakes or rats or dinosaurs coming on the set tonight!' He has those animals that you think are prehistoric and all of a sudden he's wrestling with 'em," she was quoted as saying to Leno.
Leno further teased the tense Zeta-Jones by claiming that a python was locked in a cage on the stage. And Irwin too horrified her by talking about his broken finger. But he quickly apologized, adding, "I didn't bring dinosaurs though!" (ANI)
