â¢ File under: unexpected vacation buddies. Catherine Zeta-Jones and husband Michael Douglas are in the middle of their month-long Mediterranean cruise, but when they got to Saint-Tropez, the duo were joined by some unlikely buddies - rocker Jon Bon Jovi and his wife Dorothea.

â¢ Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas headed out for a family dinner at SD26 in N.Y.C. with daughter Carys, 8, son Dylan, 10, - and two family friends.

In what universe is it even conceivable that the United States could fail to reach the semifinals of something called the World Baseball Classic? Not only fail to win, but could field a team that included Roger Clemens, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, and Johnny Damon and then lose games to Mexico, South Korea, and - wait for it - Canada? Yet it happened this year.
The miracle of "Ocean's Twelve" isn't just that it's a sequel every bit as good as the 2001 production. It's that producer Jerry Weintraub was able to get some of the biggest stars in the industry -- and Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh -- to clear their schedules for a 77-day shoot in Europe.
