Date: 15th December 2000
CATHERINE ZETA JONES and MICHAEL DOUGLAS arrived at the Hollywood premiere of their movie TRAFFIC last night (14DEC00) - but it was another couple who stole the headlines.
Lovesplit actor DENNIS QUAID showed he's bouncing back form the break-up of his marriage to MEG RYAN, by arriving with stunning new girlfriend ANDIE MACDOWELL. The couple became lovers while playing husband and wife on the set of new TV movie DINNER WITH FRIENDS, according to American tabloids, and proved there's more than just friendship when they attended the Traffic premiere last night. Both avoided questions about their romance - MacDowell, who split from husband PAUL QUALLEY last year (99) after 13 years of marriage seemed happier just talking about her stunning blue designer outfit. Quaid reportedly dumped TV star and model CAPRICE BOURRET after falling for the FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL star.
Zeta Jones and Douglas were just as coy - refusing to answer questions about their marriage. But the Welsh actress, who was six months pregnant when she filmed Traffic, dazzled in the fashion stakes, wearing a shimmering black and red dress with string backs. Among the other stunners to attend the glitzy premiere were WINONA RYDER, MINNIE DRIVER, incognito in a beige tartan hat, and SALMA HAYEK. (KL/WN/RGS)
