Zeta-Jones says Michael Douglas is a ‘Me Too’ supporter

NEW YORK (AP) — Catherine Zeta-Jones says her husband, Michael Douglas, is “110 percent” in support of the movement against sexual harassment.

Earlier this month, Douglas issued what he called a pre-emptive denial of allegations, yet to be published, that he harassed an employee in the 1980s and damaged her career. He acknowledged using “colorful language,” but otherwise said he was proud of his reputation and had no “skeletons” in the closet.

Zeta-Jones, speaking Sunday in Pasadena while promoting the TV movie “Cocaine Godmother,” did not directly address the allegations. But she noted that Douglas was the son and husband of actresses and had been working with women for much of his life. His parents are the actor Kirk Douglas and Diana Douglas.

Zeta-Jones praised her husband for addressing the allegations in a “clear and personal” way.
