After Michael Douglas suggested that his throat cancer could have been caused by oral sex, the actor quickly made front-page headlines. And while many professionals including Dr. Drew Pinsky praised the star for his honest confession, Douglas admits that it may not have been the best move for Catherine Zeta-Jones. "It was one of those things…and I so regretted any embarrassment that it caused Catherine," he shared with Event Magazine. "And her family." He continued, "We had a little bump in the road. The problem in this business is that everything is so public." In fact, the couple ultimately split in August 2013 but not before reconciling and getting back together »

Michael Douglas family traveled with him when he accepted the Genesis Prize. The 'Wall Street' actor was joined by with Catherine Zeta-Jones and their children Dylan, 14, and Carys, 12, at a ceremony in Israel, where he picked up honor which has been dubbed the 'Jewish Nobel Prize'. The 70-year-old star was awarded the prize for his work promoting a more welcoming and inclusive Judaism. The ceremony's host, Jay Leno, said: "The mission of the Genesis Prize group is to honor excellence in one's chosen professional field, and whose actions and achievements embody the character of the Jewish people who are committed to Jewish values, the Jewish community at large and the State of Israel. And that perfectly describes my friend, Michael. "At a time when people around the world debate 'Who is a Jew,' choosing Michael Douglas has a profound meaning."

Michael Douglas was honored with the Genesis Prize from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a special ceremony in Jerusalem on Thursday. According to the Genesis Prize Foundation, the annual $1 million award is given to "individuals who have attained excellence and international renown in their chosen professional fields, and who inspire others through their engagement and dedication to the Jewish community and/or the State of Israel." Michael chose to donate his prize, which ended up being $2 million after an anonymous donor gifted an additional $1 million, to organizations that foster Jewish inclusion. Michael had plenty of support during his big night, having walked the red carpet with his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and their children, 12-year-old Carys and 14-year-old Dylan. Jay Leno and Bar Refaeli were also there to celebrate Michael, who said that he "strongly believe[s] that Judaism should reflect the spirit of welcome and tradition that existed in Abraham's tent" when accepting the honor. »
Jay Leno, Bar Refaeli and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were all on hand Thursday evening in Jerusalem to fete Michael Douglas as he received the second annual Genesis Prize, a $1 million award from the Genesis Philanthropic Group, a cadre of Russian oligarchs committing to bolstering Jewish identity among Diaspora Jews. A gift from an anonymous donor this year doubled the prize to $2 million, all of which will be donated by Douglas to organizations that foster Jewish inclusion.
Douglas, who attended the splashy event with his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and their children Dylan and Carys, spoke of embracing his Jewish heritage later in life and his desire to help push the global Jewish community toward greater inclusiveness and acceptance of interfaith couples.
Douglas has a Jewish father, Kirk Douglas, but a non-Jewish mother, which means that according to Jewish law he is not considered Jewish. The same ruling goes for his children. »

Today is a very special day for Michael Douglas. The actor was presented with the Genesis Prize, which is often referred to as the Jewish Nobel Prize, in Jerusalem.

Catherine and Michael's kids look like spitting images of their famous parents and were all smiles during the event honoring the 70-year-old. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu presented the prize—which totals a whopping $1 million dollars—to Michael while Jay Leno hosted the »
Would UK entry Electro Velvet fare better than our last duo Jemini, who got nul points in 2003? How did special guest Australia get on? Stuart Heritage was there for every last Eurovision second
And now we are done. Sincerest congratulations to Sweden, and commiserations to all the other contestants, uniformly doomed as they are to become embedded YouTube clips in endless ‘What the hell was all that about’ Eurovision precursor articles a decade from now.
Now, while we go through our own individual post-Eurovision decompression routines – I don’t know about you, but mine involves putting my head into a metal bin and shouting ‘Why?’ over and over again until I tumble into the comforting arms of unconsciousness – it’s time for me to thank you.

It's so rare to find a summer blockbuster that isn't based on a comic book or video game, that when one comes along, I'm immediately drawn to it. I'll admit that is my primary reason for wanting to check out Tomorrowland (2015), which stars George Clooney as a former boy genius who embarks on a quest to a fictional world where science and imagination know no bounds.
Tomorrowland also looks to give Clooney a role unlike any other he's taken on as a paranoid recluse with powerful secrets lurking inside his head. In honor of Tomorrowland's release, I thought I'd revisit one of my favorite Clooney roles which, although unknown to many, remains loved by those who have seen it.
Written and directed by the Coen Brothers, Intolerable Cruelty (2003) stars Clooney as Miles Massey, Los Angeles' most cunning divorce attorney, who is able to make any cheating spouse in town »

The 70-year-old actor “spoiled” his wife – with who he has children Dylan, 14, and Carys, 12 – on Mother’s Day at the weekend because she deserved to be treated well.
Explaining he presented Catherine with flowers and gifts, Michael added: “[And I gave her] lots of love and affection. I lucked out, I really lucked out.”
His thrilled wife said: “It was one of the best days I’ve had in many, many years, we were all together, I got spoiled rotten, I must be doing something right.”
While they are happy in their marriage, the couple – who split briefly in 2013 – have mixed opinions on working together.
Catherine, 45, said: “If he wasn’t my husband, I’d like to work with Michael Douglas, it’s true, he’s a great actor.”
However, her spouse told ‘Extra': “I would like to work with you any way I can get you, »

Natalie Portman and husband-to-be Benjamin Millepied on the Red Carpet Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied at the Oscars Best Actress winner Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied (at the time, Portman's husband-to-be)* arrive at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Portman took home the Oscar for her performance as a mentally unstable ballerina in Darren Aronofsky's psychological drama Black Swan. An international box office hit, Black Swan was also a Best Picture nominee, ultimately losing the Oscar to Tom Hooper's The King's Speech. Besides Natalie Portman and dancer-choreographer Benjamin Millepied, also in the Black Swan cast are Mila Kunis, Winona Ryder, Barbara Hershey, and Vincent Cassel. Portman's fellow Best Actress contenders were: Annette Bening for The Kids Are All Right. Michelle Williams for Blue Valentine. Nicole Kidman for Rabbit Hole. Jennifer Lawrence for Winter's Bone. Natalie Portman had been previously nominated in »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."
The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

It sounds like Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are enjoying marital bliss! The "Ant-Man" actor stops by Thursday's "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," where he opens up about his separation from the "Chicago" star. The couple briefly separated in 2013, after each battled some health issues -- Catherine was seeking medical help for her bipolar disorder just months before the split and in 2010, Douglas was treated for cancer. Nevertheless, it seems like both A-listers are happy and healthy these days ... even though it was a bit of a struggle to get to this place. "It can’t be a one-way street, but I’m crazy about her and yeah I think every couple has their difficult times," Douglas tells Ellen about overcoming their marital issues. "The only problem is, as you well know, we’re all in the public eye and it tends to get a little more exposed than most. But »

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones' marriage is back on track. The famous couple took "some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage" beginning in May 2013. Though they lived separately for months, by year's end, the Academy Award-winning actress returned to the family's New York City apartment. The two continued to work on their marriage, and on Thursday, Douglas revealed to Ellen DeGeneres that he and Zeta-Jones have officially reconciled. "I love that you and Catherine worked things out. I know you had a little separation and I think that's a great message to send to people, that even if you have trouble, you can get through it," DeGeneres said. The actor »

There used to be a time when nothing was more cringe-worthy than a middle-aged action hero. Remember Roger Moore smooching Bond Girls 30 years his junior in the twilight years of his 007 reign? Or Sean Connery trying to recapture the glory days next to Catherine Zeta-Jones in Entrapment? That was then and this is now.
The slightly creaking older leading man is now a sizeable mini-industry in itself, primarily thanks to Liam Neeson's Bryan Mills in the Taken series. Beyond that Denzel Washington had The Equalizer, Kevin Costner had 3 Days to Kills and every action icon you remember from the '80s united for The Expendables.
The latest seasoned star to throw his hat into the still-got-lead-in-the-pencil ring is Sean Penn, teaming with »
Although Supergirl, Catwoman and Elektra are movies that exist, there are times when we wish they didn’t. To be honest, the ‘perfect’ female-headlined superhero movie is still the stuff of our cinematic dreams. Saying that, TV’s Agent Carter provided us with a brilliant example of bringing a female comic book character to the small screen earlier this year, which hopefully Hollywood will learn a lot from going forward.
Of course, Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel will be joining their respective cinematic universes soon, with Supergirl getting a pop at small screen success too. It looks like female comic book heroes will be getting the attention they deserve in the live action realm, finally.
This isn’t the first time the powers-that-be in Hollywood have tried to launch a slate of female superheroes, »
