TOUCHY FEELY: Antonio Banderas is in trouble with Michael Douglas after his antics with Catherine Zeta Jones on the Zorro promotional trail.

What the Kiwi gossip mags say

20 October 2005

By CHRIS SCHULZ
The gossip mags love cradle snatchers. From Michael Douglas to Demi Moore and Tom Cruise, this week's mags zero in on Hollywood stars with wives, husbands and girlfriends young enough to be their kids.

Up until now, Catherine Zeta Jones has enjoyed a trouble-free ride through the gossip mags. There is so little dirt available on the Welsh stunner and her husband Michael Douglas that the mags can't even make gossip up that their readers will believe.

That changes this week, and it's all thanks to Antonio Banderas.

New Idea reports Michael, 61, is fuming over Catherine's relationship with the Spanish hottie. The pair have been getting touchy-feely at movie premieres to promote their new film, The Legend of Zorro, prompting Michael to yell "keep your hands to yourself" when they hugged at a Zorro dinner, the mag reports.

It doesn't end there. The green-eyed monster is so worried about Zorro's supposedly sensational sex scenes that he rented Original Sin to check out Antonio's bedroom skills. NI twists the knife by publishing a photo from the film showing Antonio suckling on Angelina Jolie's nipple.

Meanwhile, Demi Moore's "hot wedding body" is the topic of discussion in Woman's Day, as the mag questions how the Charlie's Angels' star lost so much weight before her wedding to toy boy Ashton Kutcher. A new Hollywood fad called the Carbohydrate Addict's Diet is apparently to blame.

Demi, the mag reports, is a "carboholic" and suffers from "carbolism", meaning she piles on the pounds just looking at a loaf of bread. Unfortunately, Demi is also a "stripoholic" - she's so proud of her new body that she's reprising her Striptease role by shedding her clothes in a new film called Half Light.

Elsewhere, Woman's Weekly reports that Tom Cruise is demanding his younger, pregnant fiancee Katie Holmes gives birth while adhering to strict Scientology guidelines. This means a "silent birth" for Katie with no talking or screaming allowed, while painkillers and epidurals are also banned. Is the poor girl allowed no fun?

Also hitting the headlines this week:

  • A war has erupted between the Hilton sisters and the Olsen twins, reports WD. Mary-Kate and Ashley are fuming after Paris and Nicky started dating two of their ex-boyfriends in the space of a week. Paris was caught romancing Ashley's ex Stavros Niarchos III, while Nicky was seen with Mary-Kate's ex David Katzenberg. If the Olsen's are looking for revenge, Paris Latsis is a free man.

  • Madonna has been giving Britney Spears tips on child raising, reports New Idea. Acting as a "mummy mentor", Mads has been offering tips on everything from post pregnancy weight-loss to circumcision (presumably for Sean Preston, not Kevin Federline). Kevin has taken a parenting back seat so far, but in a few years he'll be able to pass on invaluable skills like hooking up with a rich, famous chick when you're a nobody, and how to be a professional bum.

    Finally, quote of the week comes from ditzy diva Mariah Carey, who admits to problems getting her pet Jack Russell Jack onto planes: "They actually won't let me put him on a first-class seat because he's too big. And they also said, 'We'd only allow it for a famous dog.' Please! He has three websites dedicated to him."
