Soon, the burning beauty conquered Hollywood and the heart of Michael Douglas himself.
The premiere screening of The Mask of Zorro featured Michael Douglas. Douglas was invited by a friend, Antonio Banderas. Michael immediately fell in love with the beauty and said directly to Catherine: "I would like to become the father of your children." A month later, Douglas filed for divorce and gave Catherine a $ 2 million engagement ring. Five months of courtship, and she couldn't resist.
Later, the actress admitted that she fell in love at first sight. But Michael had a reputation as a womanizer and was married at the time.
