Catherine Zeta-Jones Can't Believe She Was So 'Crass' at Tonys

Catherine Zeta-Jones was kind of excited to win her first Tony award Sunday night for her performance in A Little Night Music. How excited? First she tried to drag husband Michael Douglas up on stage with her before settling on just embarrassing him with her acceptance speech.

Catherine ticked off a list of people to thank: co-star Angela Lansbury, her leading man, the producers, the other nominees and even her parents. Then as producers began to play her off stage she pointed at Michael and thanked "that man there who's a movie star and I get to sleep with him every night."

While the audience cheered its approval, Catherine admitted being mortified as she left the stage. "I can't believe I said something like that," she told London's Daily Mail. "Just can't believe I said something as crass as that."

Chalk it up to the shock of winning a Tony years after she left the stage to pursue a movie career. "I'm in a state of shock to be totally honest with you," she said. "I can't believe I won the Tony Award. I couldn't believe I'd been nominated with a group of such great actresses."
