In No Reservations, Catherine Zeta-Jones plays a no-nonsense masterchef who considers microwavable fish sticks a sin, which, she says,isn’t too different from her attitude towards them in real life.Shirley Temple-addicts Dylan, 6, and Carys, 4, her children withMichael Douglas, get to choose the family menu on Saturdays, and ifit’s fish, Catherine makes sure it’s top-notch cuisine.

Also a big no-no are bad manners. As she has previously stated,Catherine prides herself on teaching her children proper decorum.

As a hands-on parent – she and Michael always read to and tuck Dylanand Carys into bed – nothing is harder for the 37-year-old actress thanleaving them behind for work.

Her kids do visit their parents on set. No Reservations director Scott Hicks recalled a humorous incident with Dylan when he mistook Catherine’s stand-in for his mom.

While she has dreamt of having three children, Catherine says she doesn’t need or want that wish fulfilled anymore.

Cameron, 28, has continued the Douglas family acting tradition andCatherine has no problems if Dylan and Carys do the same – when they’readults.
