Cathy comes home!

Aug 7 2005

Marc Baker, Wales on Sunday

 

THERE'S no such thing as a quiet night out if your name is Catherine Zeta Jones!

More than 150 Swansea well-wishers flocked to wave hello to the woman who's put their home on Hollywood's map.

Back in Wales to move into their £2m luxury mansion, Zeta and acting legend hubby Michael Douglas rolled up to Knight's restaurant in the Mumbles on Friday night undetected for a family meal with parents Dai and Pat and brother Lyndon.

But by the time they left, word had clearly got around.

Looking stunning in a cream suit, the 35-year-old Chicago star and her 60-year-old husband took it all in their stride, with big waves and even bigger grins.

For the couple who famously claimed that £1m is simply pocket money, they made sure they didn't push the boat out too much with some modest choices at dinner.

Catherine settled for the Thai crab balls with curry sauce starter followed by a £14.85 lemon sole fillet main course.

Her Basic Instinct star husband tucked into his grilled scallop starter followed by the £14.75 saute monkfish main.

They plonked for one £28 bottle of Spanish Pesquera wine and a £16.95 bottle of the German Mulderbosch.

Restaurant owner Michael Knight said: "The night had been booked for a couple of weeks. We had about 80 people in on Friday and they left Catherine and Michael alone to enjoy themselves. It was nice to see them. They stayed for a couple of hours. After their meal they jumped in a cab and went home. We hope to see them again."

The Oscar-winner mother-of-two looked happy as she showed her husband around their new secluded five-bedroom house on Friday.

Her husband arrived with a boxed-up bouquet as a house-warming gift for her parents who have already moved in as 'house-sitters'.

Catherine's parents walked off their big meal yesterday by taking their grandson Dylan, who is five next week, and 27-month-old grand-daugher Carys out for a stroll in Mumbles park.
