About Catherine Zeta-Jones
Before singing and dancing her way to an Oscar as a remorseless murderess in Chicago, you’ve seen her flaunting her curves in The Mask of Zorro and Entrapment. Catherine’s grace and calm have earned her the nickname Catherine The (truly) Great in Hollywood, whether she’s navigating a maze of lasers or supporting her husband as he undergoes chemotherapy.
How fortunate for one of Hollywood’s loveliest and best dressed actresses that Catherine, who was born in Wales, was the daughter of a candy factory worker and a seamstress, acquired the acting bug at a young age, quit school, and moved to London. Catherine began her career on the big stage in a number of plays, such as Annie and Bugsy Malone.
But after landing the main role in the British version of 42nd Street, Catherine’s name started to appear frequently in directors’ rolodexes.
She landed a part in the British television series The Darling Buds of May in 1991 as she made the transition from curtains to cable. She became a media darling as a result of her performance, and she started dipping in and out of relationships with other guys, including actor Angus Macfadyen (with whom she was engaged for 15 months) and filmmaker Nick Hamm.
In 1996, Catherine left for America to try to break into Hollywood after realizing that her ambition of having a successful acting career was actually becoming a reality. Director Steven Spielberg suggested Catherine for a role in the blockbuster The Mask of Zorro after taking note of her excellent performance in the TV movie series Titanic. The seductive beauty was introduced to America in the part opposite Antonio Banderas, and her performance earned her a spot on People magazine’s list of the Most Beautiful People of 2008. More importantly, it coincidentally resulted in her meeting her future husband.
Royalty of Hollywood
Michael Douglas urged Banderas to introduce him to Catherine after watching her in The Mask of Zorro. The two connected right away and started dating, which resulted in an Aspen proposal. And the 10-carat diamond ring that Douglas proposed with is the perfect example of how to express “I love you.” She starred in the box office smash Entrapment alongside her love interest Sean Connery since she was having a lot of luck with older guys (Douglas is 25 years Catherine’s senior).
After starring in High Fidelity with John Cusack, Catherine gave birth to her first child, Dylan Michael, in August 2000. After exchanging vows three months later, the newlyweds sold the wedding photographs to OK! Magazine for an astounding $1.6 million.
The newlyweds filed a lawsuit after another tabloid, Hello!, published pictures from the ceremony.
Cancer Andall That Jazz
Zeta-Jones starred in the highly regarded 2001 film Traffic directed by Steven Soderbergh. In the movie, Catherine portrayed a drug lord’s pregnant wife who was left to care for herself and keep up her high way of living when her husband was imprisoned. Catherine received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress for her performance. But when Catherine was chosen to play the title role in the movie version of the legendary musical Chicago, things really got heated. Renee Zellweger’s lead actress, Catherine, who played the tap dancing murderess Velma Kelly, stole the show and won the 2003 Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. Carys Zeta Douglas, Catherine’s first daughter and second child, was born in April.
The mother of two later reprised her part in The Legend of Zorro (2005), had her Broadway debut in A Little Night Music (2010), for which she won the Best Actress Tony Award, and starred in the romantic comedy No Reservations. Tragic events have happened in Hollywood before, and Catherine’s family was no exception. Michael, the spouse, received a throat cancer diagnosis in 2010. But a strong Catherine supported him all the way through his triumphant recovery in October 2010. With little question the top sweetheart in America, Catherine is recognized as Hollywood royalty thanks to her unmistakable class.
“I’d love to do a show in Vegas. I have a big ambition to do a really tacky Vegas show with drag queens.”
