NEW YORK (CBS) Make no mistake, if you watched the Tony Awards on Sunday night, you know emphatically that actress Catherine Zeta-Jones loves her main man actor Michael Douglas.

The 40-year-old actress, gave a quirky shout-out to her hubby of 10 years in a glowing speech when accepting the Tony Award for Best Actress for "A Little Night Music."

"See that man there?" she told the Tony Awards crowd, "He's a movie star and I get to sleep with him every night!"


It's been a good run for the Welsh stunner, who just the night before held court with Queen Elizabeth II. Her majesty named Zeta-Jones Commander of the Order of the British Empire.

And though we must now refer to Zeta-Jones as "Dame," it was refreshing to see the award-winner gushing at the podium like a giddy school girl.

"I'm in a state of shock to be totally honest with you," she said during her acceptance speech. "I can't believe I won the Tony Award. I couldn't believe I'd been nominated with a group of such great actresses."

Dame Zeta-Jones did have some regrets: "I can't believe I said something like that," she later told London's Daily Mail. "Just can't believe I said something as crass as that."

We're guessing after the after-party, she was planning on making "A Little Night Music."
