Feisty film star CATHERINE ZETA JONES has become the unwelcome target of an array of American journalists.
The wife of actor MICHAEL DOUGLAS has been described by New York columnist LIZ SMITH as behaving like "a real movie queen".
At the recent premiere of her new movie, TRAFFIC, Catherine was asked if there were any rhinestones in her earrings. She replied "They're diamonds. Rhinestones? I thought you only got those in Texas."
Texan Liz Smith says, "Perhaps Mrs Michael Douglas has never been to Texas. I can assure you, you've never seen bigger, realer rocks than on the wrists, fingers and necks of Lone Star matrons. Catherine is really something."
