Despite claims of sexual harassment, Catherine Zeta-Jones is standing by her husband.
Zeta-Jones says her husband, Michael Douglas is a strong supporter of the #MeToo campaign, despite facing allegations of inappropriate behavior.
Douglas, who has been married to Zeta-Jones for 17 years and share two children, made a preemptive decision earlier this year to dispel rumors of sexually harassing a former employee 32 years ago.
In an interview with Deadline, Douglas denied claims he had masturbated in front of the unnamed accuser or that he “spoke raunchily, or dirtily” in her presence while on the phone with friends.
“I will fess up to colorful language, but the issue of masturbating in front of her? … This is a complete lie, fabrication, no truth to it whatsoever,” Douglas said.
The award winning actor also went on to address why he decided to speak out against the claims before his accuser decided to go public.
“I had the choice of waiting for a story to come out, one that will clearly get picked up by other newspapers and magazines, and then I have to sit there and try to defend myself. Or, try to share with the public, a little ahead of the story, my thoughts and concerns,” Douglas added.
Now it’s Zeta-Jones turn to voice her own opinions.
