Catherine Zeta-Jones is passionate about interior design and even has her own homeware line, Casa Zeta-Jones. The star is always thinking of ways to improve the décor in her house, but her latest plan has divided fans after she shared her idea with them on social media. On Wednesday, the Chicago actress shared a photo on Instagram of a staircase covered with flowers and candles, resembling something from a wedding venue. In the caption, the Hollywood star wrote: "I told Michael I was doing this to our entryway (crying face emoji), too much??" In the comments section, many of Catherine's followers encouraged the idea, with one writing: "It's beautiful, I would," while another added: "Never too much, go for it." However, some of Catherine's followers were not as taken by the idea, with some pointing out the potential fire risks, while others said it was just too much.

Michael Douglas' wife has previously spoken about how supportive her parents were when she was growing up. Despite coming from a modest background, they sent Catherine to dance and ballet lessons from a young age, and enrolled her in a private school in Swansea. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Catherine revealed: "My dad owned a candy factory and my mother was a seamstress so I was brought up with her sticking me with pins for costumes. They were supportive, very supportive." Most recently, her family came to visit her in New York, where they visited Dylan at university.
