Jane Leeves Gets a Little Catty About Catherine Zeta-Jones (VIDEO)

Jane Leeves Gets a Little Catty About Catherine Zeta-Jones'Hot in Cleveland' star Jane Leeves was the guest on 'The Kilborn File' (weeknights, 7PM ET on Fox). While she was on the show, Leeves took the opportunity to unleash a little cattiness against Catherine Zeta-Jones. Ooh! We like it! A little British actress vs. British actress fight!

Craig Kilborn told Leeves that he had once read that she was the highest-paid English actress. " ... Well, that's what they're saying," Jane replied. "But that would be a bit sad wouldn't it, really? I'm sure, like, Catherine Zeta-Jones has outdone me." Then, Leeves paused for half a second. " ... Although she's going to have to probably wait a few years for that money."

"Was that a reference to divorcing someone?" Kilborn asked.

"No, no, no, no, no, no, no," Jane said.

This was, in fact, a fairly subtle burn, which referred to the fact that Zeta-Jones is currently married to Michael Douglas. And Douglas' divorce from his previous wife was one of the most expensive in Hollywood history -- costing him an estimated $45 million, not including the two houses that he had to give to his ex-wife.

So if Catherine Zeta-Jones ever did divorce Michael Douglas -- she'd stand to come away with, well, quite a lot of money. But Jane was only kidding! Just a little joke! Jane Leeves really seems incredibly nice and self-deprecating. So, just a mild zinger on her part.

I think the joke is more about the old fart kicking off.
