The actor admitted that he was completely smitten with the stunning actress as soon as he saw her and when he discovered they both shared a love for golf, he knew he had to marry her.
"I just got struck down. I was just bowled over by Catherine. When I discovered she loved golf, I realised all my fantasies had come true," Contact Music quoted the 66-year-old father of two as telling Live magazine.
Douglas also said he loves spoiling his spouse with gifts. "Well, I am always buying her something. Catherine loves antique jewellery. I'm due to get her something for our tenth anniversary, which is coming up," he said.
