About Catherine Zeta-Jones (1969 - )
Catherine Zeta-Jones was born in Swansea, West Glamorgan,
Wales, in the UK, the daughter of candy factory manager,
Welshman Dai Jones and an Irish mother Pat Jones.
She grew up in the village town of Mumbles,
located along the coast of Wales. Catherine Zeta-Jones
was the middle child between an older brother, development
executive David Jones and a younger brother, Lyndon
Jones, who is now involved with Catherine's present
Catherine's singing and dancing talent emerged early
and she achieved local stardom before she was 10 years
old! She had the opportunity to perform in productions
organized by a Catholic congregation in the area,
which sponsored an acting troupe.
Catherine's ability and talent soon won her the roles
in the stage plays ANNIE , BUGSY MALONE and
THE PAJAMA GAME. Her big break on the stage happened
when as the second understudy she got the chance to
perform as the lead in the British revival of 42ND
STREET. She did so well that the producer let her
continue to be the lead throughout the run of the
play. She was 15 years old!
Her popularity as an actress grew throughout the
United Kingdom in the early 1990's because of her
performance in the hugely popular TV comedy/drama
series, THE DARLING BUDS OF MAY. This success was
a springboard into playing supporting actress gigs
In 1996, she landed the part of the spirited Elena
in the film, MASK OF ZORRO, holding her own against
Antonio Banderas and Anthony Hopkins, which really
gained her notice outside of the United Kingdom. She
found herself being hired to perform in big budget
films, such as ENTRAPMENT, THE HAUNTING and TRAFFIC,
a film for which many believe she should've been nominated
in the Best Supporting Actress category.
Catherine Zeta-Jones married Michael Douglas on November
18th, 2000, shortly after giving birth to their son.
They had a second child together, a daughter, born
on April 20th, 2003.

“There are a lot of women who live with pot-bellied pigs.”
“I'd love to do a show in Vegas with drag queens. The tackier the better.”
“[So can her husband cook?] No, ... But he's really good at making dinner reservations.”
“I like to feel sexy. I know my husband thinks I'm sexy. I think he is too. But I don't go out half-naked with 'sex' written across my back.”
