CATHERINE ZETA JONES
Catherine Zeta Jones is one of the most famous actresses in the United States. She has everything, she has class, great acting skills and lives an amazing life with her husband Michael Douglas. This gallery is a tribute to all her amazing achievements and success.
Married to Hollywood royalty, Catherine Zeta-Jones has spent decades living pretty discreetly with her double Oscar-winning husband Michael Douglas and their children Dylan, 16 and Carys, 13.
Okay, she swept through airports with a staff member wheeling her huge Louis Vuitton trunks, and there was no doubt that extravagance was the order of the day — but she didn’t seem to flaunt it.
There was one slip in 2003 when she observed that: ‘A million dollars isn’t a lot of money for people like us.’
But given that Zeta-Jones is worth £35 million and her husband £155 million, she was probably just being honest.
It’s in stark contrast to her upbringing; her dad owned a sweet factory and her mother was a seamstress, and Zeta-Jones grew up in an ordinary four-bedroom home on a surburban estate in the Mumbles area of Swansea.
After a decade of living chiefly in a Manhattan penthouse with Michael she has taken to a more rural life with aplomb, proudly posting a picture of herself with an armful of peonies, freshly cut from her own flowerbeds.
