Catherine Zeta-Jones left pal George Clooney stunned when she took the movie star up on his offer to spend time at his Italian retreat on the banks of Lake Como. Clooney invited the Welsh actress to vacation at his palatial European pad and couldn't believe it when she actually called him.
She says, "I called him a few months later and said, It'll be me, (husband) Michael (Douglas), two nannies and two kids.' "He went, What?' I always invite people to my house, but no one has ever called and said, I'll be there next Thursday.' But I do. Invite me to your house, I'm coming.
