Mr and Mrs Douglas fairytale wedding crumbles August 29, 2013 16:26

In November 2000, a young Catherine Zeta-Jones had married a rich and glamorous Michael Douglas, 25 years her senior. Braving criticism and several odds, the couple had a fairytale union and went on to become one of the most followed couples by the paparazzi. Following an infamous pre-nup agreement and 2 children, the lovers are calling it quits. They have not yet applied formally for divorce, but their relationship is definitely on the rocks, primarily because the glamorous movie star has become a grouchy old man. Douglas has reportedly began putting her down constantly, leading to raging arguments that would go on for days. The couple have even tied to take time out and spend relaxing vacations with each other. Sadly, their proximity was too stressful as they have changed as people. Catherine and Michael are not the same people they were when they got married and have fallen out of love. Michael was recently diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer and underwent treatment. Causes were attributed to heavy drinking and smoking. Catherine also experienced psychiatric issues, eventually taking treatment for Bipolar disorder. The age difference has also taken a toll on their relationship, with the couple deciding to spend time apart. The constant stress of having to take care of each other when not in love anymore has resulted in their union dissolving. Douglas has been living away from his wife for some time now. He was also reportedly angry with her for not supporting his son from an earlier marriage after he was arrested for taking drugs. Catherine, on her part, slipped into drinking heavily due to the continuous trouble in the relationship. They are together worth £185million. Owing to the pre-nuptial agreement, Mr Douglas will have to pay Mrs Dougals £960,000 for every year of marriage, not counting the many homes they own. Back when they were in love, 13 years ago, they were publicly full of admiration for each other. In the present, there is nothing but money that has remained of their marriage. Douglas even agreed that he should have divorced his first wife much earlier as their relationship failed much before the official separation. (AW: Sruthi)

He deems that Indians think from their heart. This, he says, made his experience of shooting in India worthwhile. Kutcher, who shot for some parts of the biopic in Old Delhi and the Jama Masjid last year, believes that the Indian side of the story was a crucial part of the plot. "We see the way people live and you start to feel that people are living based on their instincts. They kind of think more from their heart than their mind and I think that was an important capacity to get and incorporate in the film and it was beautiful," Ashton Kutcher said in a statement. "We went all over the place. We went to Old Delhi and travelled around shooting sort of pieces here and there. So it was great," he added. Kutcher plays Steve Jobs in the biopic. The movie hit the theaters this August 23. (AW: Suchorita Dutta)

However, the actor is still very much in love with her and has turned to his pets to get over his heartbreak, reported Hollywood Life. "Rob's looking forward to working on his music and just spending some down time with his close friends and Bear and Bernie." "It sounds funny, but he is so close to those dogs. He's been getting so much love and comfort from them during this tough transition without Kristen," a source said. Pattinson is a very, very private guy and doesn't open up to his friends about his feelings too. "Contrary to what Kristen believes, Rob is not taking their breakup lightly. He just doesn't show his emotions openly. He's an introverted guy, especially when it comes to relationships." "He's not one to open up and blab about what's going on. He's also very English and keeps to himself," the source said. We just hope that Pattinson licks his wounds and moves on soon!. (AW: Suchorita Dutta)

Obama says, control yourselves August 10, 2013 14:59

All of us are aware of the over-the-top lifestyle of Kim and Kanye. While their ostentatious display of wealth seem to awe the commoners, it certainly seem to disgust the American President Barrack Obama. Just recently, Obama was caught criticizing the outrageous lifestyle of West and Kardashian in an interview. The President expressed deep concerns on the impact it was going to have on the younger generation. “While answering question on how the American dream has become more about yearning for tangible things one can't afford, Obama said that during his days, the American dream was about acquiring a good home, a good job, and the possibility of higher education,” a popular English daily reported. “But the new generation, which has easy access to the lifestyle of celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, take it as a mark of success and everything appears smaller by comparison,” the President further added. Kim and Kanye are worth 130 million dollars, apparently! Image: India Today (AW: Suchorita Dutta)
