Catherine Zeta-Jones first realised her feelings for Michael Douglas when her mother excitedly "gave her a nudge" while they were watching a sex scene between the star and Glenn Close.

The Welsh actress, who later married the ageing actor in 2000, admits her mum PAT loved the FATAL ATTRACTION scene which saw the pair romp upon a washing machine, and they laugh about it now.

She says, "Mum says now, 'Little did I know you would marry him.'"
