Zeta-jones Apologises For 'Crass' Tonys Quip

CATHERINE ZETA-JONES has apologised for the saucy remarks she made about her husband MICHAEL DOUGLAS in her acceptance speech at the Tony Awards - calling her comments "crass".
The Chicago star was in New York City on Sunday night (13Jun10) for the annual prize-giving, which honours the best in Broadway theatre, and took the stage to accept an award for her starring role in A Little Night Music.
But Zeta-Jones stunned the crowd by including a racy tribute to her husband in her speech, telling the audience, "See that man over there? He's a movie star, and I get to sleep with him every night."
And the actress admits she regrets including the inappropriate statement.
She tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "It wasn't the most elegant thing to say, was it? I was so caught up in the moment I don't think I knew what I was saying. I had no control over what was coming out of my mouth. What I said about Michael was heartfelt... although I can't believe I said something like that. Just can't believe I said something as crass as that."
And Zeta-Jones is grateful her saucy comments were relatively tame, adding, "Boy, I could have said something worse and then I'd really be in trouble. Mind you, the problem with saying that I get to sleep with Michael every night is that it was done on television and it's on tape forever."
