Catherine Zeta-Jones: I could never be a cougar

Welsh beauty Catherine Zeta-Jones says young men simply don’t do it for her. The 40-year-old actress, who is married to 65-year-old Michael Douglas, reckons older men have a lot more to offer.

She explains, “I know that young men are more unbiased, playful and firmer, but they are also more selfish and narcissistic. This is why they never had a chance to go out with me. I need a man who is sensitive and caring.”

oum-of-two Catherine says Michael, her husband of 10 years, is her ideal man and she doesn’t worry about their 25-year age difference. “He knows exactly what he wants and what life is about. That impresses me. But Michael can also be a real softie. He sends me flowers and cries when his kids say something particularly pathetic. We didn’t care about the age gap from the beginning on. We relied more on our emotions and feelings. It was like that and it should always be like that.”
