The Douglases hit their first public bump in the road in 2003, when they sue Britain's Hello! magazine for publishing unauthorized photos of their wedding (they win). In 2004, Zeta-Jones sues a Reno, Nev., strip club for putting her picture on its website (details of the case are not revealed). And in 2005, the couple faces off against a stalker, a woman who made death threats against Zeta-Jones and admitted to being in love with Douglas; she's sentenced to a three-year prison term and a 10-year restraining order.
