Catherine Zeta-Jones is opening up about Michael Douglas’ recent denial of the sexual misconduct claims against him.
While speaking with reporters during a press day for her upcoming film, Cocaine Godmother: The Griselda Blanco Story at the Lifetime Television Critics Association on the 14th of January, the 48-year-old actress spoke with Entertainment Tonight about the #MeToo movement.
She said that, after hearing about the movement, nobody supports it more than Catherine and her husband.
The 73-year-old actor recently denied allegations and Catherine said she “cannot elaborate on something that’s so very personal to him.” The actress said his position is “very clear” on the matter.
The actress also spoke on the current political climate and said we are finally at a time where women are speaking out against things that typically were not even discussed by anybody. Jones emphasized the importance for women to realize their power in numbers.
According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Douglas responded to claims made against him by an employee who worked for him more than thirty years ago. Michael said it was a “complete lie, fabrication,” and there was no truth to it all.
Douglas stressed the importance for people to realize that accusations are serious business, and we should be careful about accusing and being accused.
Douglas is just one of many actors to go on the defensive in recent months, as the cascade of allegations hit Hollywood, many men were washed up in the waves including Louis CK, Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, James Toback, Bill O’Reilly, Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer, and many others.
The #MeToo movement took out prolific figures in the restaurant industry as well. Just yesterday, Celebrity Insider reported that fashion photographers were outed as predators as well; serious structural changes are imminent.
