Catherine Zeta-Jones Refused Movie Offer to Stay With Sick Husband

catherine-zeta-jones.jpgWelsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has reportedly declined a role in a new movie about Marilyn Monroe in order to stay by the side of her cancer stricken husband Michael Douglas.

She was supposed to play the role of screen siren Vivien Leigh in upcoming biopic My Week With Marilyn, but the actress turned down the offer because she said she doesn’t want to be away from her husband for more than 48 hours. Michael is currently receiving treatment for severe throat cancer.

Catherine would have starred alongside Michelle Williams, who is playing Marilyn, and British star Emma Watson in the movie.

“It isn’t a huge role, but filming would take a week out of her schedule and she wasn’t prepared to do that,” a source said. “She had to say no.”

Earlier this week, Catherine revealed that Michael was responding well to his treatment, which includes eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy. “Everyone couldn’t be happier with his progress. He’s holding up with great strength and dignity,” she said.
