“The Mask of Zorro” was a hit movie where Catherine Zeta Jones played the daughter of an ageing Zorro, played by Anthony Hopkins. While watching the movie “The Mask of Zorro” another famous actor, Michael Douglas, was mesmerized by Catherine’s charm and beauty. From that moment he was determined to win her heart. They were introduced to each other by mutual friend Antonio Banderas.
Within a few months, Michael Douglas filed for divorce and then proposed to Catherine Zeta-Jones. He presented her with a 10 carat marquise cut diamond engagement ring set in an east-west orientation. The ring was estimated to be worth $2 million.
Several years later they later celebrated with a million dollar wedding at The Plaza. Some of the guests included Tom Jones, Anthony Hopkins, Bonnie Tyler, Stephen Spielberg, Danny de Vito, Sean Connery, Christopher Reeves and Michael Caine.
Catherine wore the marquise ring on her right hand after the wedding. My right bicep is just so over pumped,” the 31-year-old newlywed joked, “Just from having my engagement ring on this hand. I had it on my [left] hand for many months, so I’m starting to even out right now.” On her left hand she wears the Welsh gold band she received from Michael Douglas when the two married.
