CATHERINE ZETA JONES forbade MICHAEL DOUGLAS to look at her until she was halfway down the aisle - because it would make them both cry.
Zeta Jones, who married the BASIC INSTINCT star in a lavish $2.5 million (£1.66 million) ceremony at a New York hotel last weekend (18NOV00), gave Douglas strict orders not to turn his head until she'd nearly reached the altar - because it would make him cry, and then she'd cry.
But the plan ultimately failed - as Douglas, overcome with emotion, failed to hold back the tears and was the first of the happy couple to cry. (LE/WNV/NFA)
