“Added value. Celebrity couples: magic or misery?” 

For some celebrity couples, two really is better than one... but (single/suit/good) (10-13) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ . Rosie Milner follows the changing profiles of some of the stars who have tried being part of a double act.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin

Gwyneth was practically bom for Hollywood — her father was a film producer, her mother an actress, and Steven Spielberg is her godfather, (immaculate look, boyfriends, allegedly, ‘Ice Queen’, nickname, earn) (18-22) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ But soon after starting dating Coldplay singer Chris Martin, the usually polished Gwyneth was more regularly seen in jeans and trainers, carrying her yoga mat. Gwyneth turned from icy to cool as her look became more funky, and her image more down-to-earth — and of course her A-list glamour didn’t do scruffy Chris any harm! (now, London, prove, powerful, baby Apple) (15-20) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas

Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas may seem like an unlikely couple. He is the son of actor Kirk Douglas, while she grew up in Swansea, Wales, (cut one’s teeth, British TV, unsuccessful, date, singing career) (25) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ He, meanwhile, began as an assistant director on his father’s films in the 1960s, and racked up a string of Oscars and Golden Globes for both his acting and producing. And then there’s the 25-year age gap. (engagement, cunningly calculated, to crowbar, Hollywood lenses) (25) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ But as the years go on, Douglas has got more wrinkly (despite the rumoured facelifts), and Catherine’s career has gone from hit to hit. She has now silenced her critics by winning an Oscar for her role in Chicago. Now the couple help boost each other’s profile — she benefited from her husband’s Hollywood status, and he can be proud not only of having a beautiful woman on his arm, but a talented one too.
