Famous Celebrity Couples Who Make Us Believe in Love
MICHAEL DOUGLAS AND CATHERINE ZETA-JONES
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have fate on their side. The two stars—who share the same birthday, on September 25th—could not have been the Hollywood power couple they are today if they hadn’t crossed paths 22 years ago. Despite their ups and downs, it’s clear that the Oscar winners take their marriage vows exceptionally seriously. But how did this unusual pair meet in the first place?
Two of their mutual friends, Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith, introduced the actors. At the dinner for the Zorro premiere, Douglas asked quite gentlemanly if he might sit next to Zeta-Jones at a very long table. The two became friends over the phone because their hectic schedules prevented them from meeting in person. The friendship eventually grew into a relationship. They sealed their love in a lavish ceremony at the Plaza Hotel in New York and began their family and investments.
