It’s not Oscar night unless Barbara Walters conducts all-star interviews. In her hot seat last night were Ricky Martin, Mike Myers and future bride and groom Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones. During the course of the ABC TV interview, Walters asked Martin about the rumors that he is gay. “Sexuality or homosexuality should not be a problem for anyone,” the Latin singing sensation responded, ultimately telling Walters, “Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity (to confront the rumors), but for some reason I just don’t feel like it.” Michael Douglas said that his and Zeta-Jones’s baby is due in August, and that they will get married a couple of months afterward. “We’re going to wait until after the baby (is born),” he said, “so Catherine’s back in shape for that svelte white wedding dress.” “Austin Powers” star Myers told Walters that his comic philosophy came from his father. “Nothing is so bad that it can’t be laughed at,” the elder Myers apparently told his appreciative son. Said Mike: “My dad was covered in chocolate and rolled in nuts. He was a nut bar.”
