When you’re as rich and famous as Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas, you have to keep life as normal for your kids as you can, unless you want a houseful of miniature primma donnas.
But it sounds like those two may have overdone it just a little on the ‘we’re nothing special’ front.
In an interview with Britain’s The Sun newspaper, CZJ says that multi-Oscar winner Michael is so convincing in the role of ‘Average Dad’ that their kids, Dylan, 7, and Cerys, 5, think he’s a professional pancake-maker!
"Michael makes excellent pancakes. He’s pretty good at waffles, too," the Welsh actress told the paper.
"Dylan was doing occupations at school recently and the teacher said, ‘You have to go home and ask Mummy and Daddy what they do.’
“So we were trying to explain to Dylan that we make movies and he went to Michael, ‘Hang on. Mama makes movies, you make pancakes!’ So my two-time Oscar-winning husband with a career of 40 years looks at me and says, ‘Oh, it’s come to that!’”
