Catherine Zeta-Jones Biography

Catherine Zeta-Jones won an Oscar as best supporting actress for her deliciously villainous femme fatale in the 2002 film Chicago. Originally more popular in the U.K. than in the U.S., Zeta-Jones was a hit on both sides of the Atlantic as the love interest of Antonio Banderas in the 1998 movie The Mask of Zorro. She quickly became an A-list star, often cast as a wily and sexy schemer. Her profile was boosted by her movie-star romance with actor Michael Douglas. The two were married in 2000, not long after they completed filming Steven Soderbergh‘s Traffic. While raising children she’s kept active in the movies, often in romantic comedies such as the Coen brothersIntolerable Cruelty (2003), Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Twelve (2004, with George Clooney), the sequel The Legend of Zorro (2005) and No Reservations (2007, with Abigail Breslin).
