Catherine Zeta-Jones: ‘I’m Sick Of Being Humble’

Catherine Zeta-Jones is “sick of being humble”, and no longer feels she needs to apologize for her money and fame.
The 48-year-old Oscar-winning actress was born and raised in Swansea, Wales, to working-class parents. She started her career on British TV series The Darling Buds of May, before landing roles in movies The Mask of Zorro in 1998, and Entrapment in 1999.
She and husband Michael Douglas wed at a lavish wedding ceremony at the iconic Plaza Hotel in New York in 2000. And in 2003, a heavily-pregnant Zeta-Jones won the best supporting actress Oscar for her role as Velma Kelly in the movie-adaptation of the musical Chicago.
Speaking to British newspaper the Daily Mirror, the mother-of-two confessed she was done having to apologize for her fame and fortune, and is too busy focusing on her work and family to worry about what others think of her.
“One thing I’m not is humble any more. I’m sick of being humble. I really am. ‘So sorry I’m rich, so sorry I’m married to a movie star, so sorry I’m not so bad looking.’ No sorrys. Enough. All that is important to me now is my work,” she insisted.
“That’s what I love and the rest of my life is a joy because I’ve got two beautiful kids and a healthy, happy husband. It’s all good, and I’m not going to be humble for that either.”
Zeta-Jones shares two children with her 73-year-old husband – Dylan, 17, and 15-year-old Carys.
The proud mom believes her kids will continue the Douglas acting dynasty, headed by their 101-year-old grandfather, and Hollywood legend, Kirk Douglas.
“I have two kids who want to be actors and I am so proud. It’s not about fame for them. They’ve been brought up around famous people. They know what that is like,” Zeta-Jones explained.
“They want the craft because that’s what they love. And it gives me such pride that they get it. They understand that this is not a quick fix. They’re so good. I can’t wait for you all to see which way they’re going to go because they’re going to go somewhere, I’m telling you.”
