Hollywood actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is such a bad cook her husband Michael Douglas has banned her from entering their kitchen.

The CHICAGO star admits she is a liability when it comes to preparing cooked food.

She says, "Michael is afraid when I'm in the kitchen. I'm not allowed to go in anymore.

"I burnt a pan. It wasn't on fire, but it was smoking... and right next to the stove was a fire extinguisher."
