He acknowledged using “colorful language” but otherwise said the harassment story was a lie and that he was proud of his reputation.
Zeta-Jones did not directly address the allegations Sunday. But she said she was “very, very happy” with his statement and felt that he expressed himself “in a very, very concise, clear and personal manner.”
