Swindon, England – November 2010

WELSH screen siren Catherine Zeta Jones was today revealed as the perfect agony aunt.

More than one in five people say the sexy actress, 41, who is married to Michael Douglas, is the woman they would most like to go to for relationship advice.

And according to a new survey, Brits believe Hollywood A-lister Will Smith – married to Jada Pinkett Smith – would make the ideal “agony uncle”.

But Premier League footballers Wayne Rooney, Peter Crouch and Ashley Cole are among the last people that people would turn to for advice about love.

The Love and Lies survey, commissioned by do-it-yourself divorce experts Divorce Online, also reveals that most people believe it is no more acceptable for celebrities to be unfaithful to their partners than ordinary people.

And about two thirds (67%) think famous people should even set an example and have a moral responsibility to their fans to be role models.

About 83% would never consider leaving a partner for a celebrity lifestyle, although 6% say they would be willing to ditch their other half for a life of fame and fortune.

In the study, carried out for Divorce Online by Opinion Matters – who quizzed 1,437 people – 63% say financial stability would be the most attractive celebrity-style trait in a partner.

More than a third also think pre-nuptial agreements have become more common thanks to the growing number of celebrity marriages. An increasing number of celebrities are signing “pre-nups” to protect their fortunes in case the marriage breaks down and ends in divorce.

Robbie Williams’ new wife Ayda Field is believed to have signed one before their marriage in August and speculation is also rife that newly-engaged Prince William and Kate Middleton may also be set to sign a pre-nup.

Mark Keenan, Managing Director of Divorce Online, said: “It is clear that people perceive Catherine Zeta Jones as having an extremely strong celebrity marriage to Michael Douglas, despite their 25-year age gap.

“The same goes for Will Smith and they are obviously role models when it comes to conducting celebrity relationships in the right way.

“It is also interesting that people think pre-nuptial agreements are becoming more common. It is true that they are definitely on the rise among the wider public and they are certainly becoming par for the course for celebrity marriages.”
