It’s hard to imagine someone as stunning and accomplished as Catherine Zeta-Jones having any doubts about her appearance. Yet, as it turns out, even the most seemingly perfect people have their own struggles. Recently, Catherine got real about her insecurities and spoke candidly about a regret that still haunts her.
Despite her success in Hollywood, Catherine Zeta-Jones has insecurities.
The Welsh actress, known for her striking beauty, surprised many by revealing that she has insecurities just like everyone else. Topping lists of “most beautiful” women comes with its own pressures, and Zeta-Jones admits that it can be intimidating to read a script with descriptions like “beautiful,” “stunning,” or “gorgeous.”
Catherine never considered herself gorgeous, but with time and experience, she’s learned to embrace her natural beauty.
She may not have always considered herself a great beauty, but Catherine’s mother always encouraged her to make the best of herself. With age, Catherine has gained more confidence in her appearance, saying, “As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become much more confident about the way I look.”
Despite her insecurities, Catherine exudes confidence on the red carpet.
Sometimes, Catherine Zeta-Jones needs to put on a confident façade while walking the red carpet, despite having insecurities. She admits, “There’s a confidence I’ve sometimes had to put on when I walk down a red carpet. I have my insecurities like every other woman.” Catherine also shared her love for Old Hollywood glamour and makeup, going so far as to say she won’t take out the trash “without mascara on, or eyeliner.”
Family is everything to Catherine.
Catherine Zeta-Jones is married to Hollywood royalty Michael Douglas, and together they have two children. She’s incredibly grateful for the support of her family, stating that working with her husband on a project was a gift, and her children have been supportive of her in both her career and personal life. She describes her relationship with her family as “very close” and feels blessed to have them in her life.
One regret still haunts Catherine.
Despite her successful career, Catherine Zeta-Jones has one regret that she can’t let go of. The role she always coveted was that of 007 in the James Bond franchise. She reveals that Sean Connery, her co-star in the movie Entrapment, told her she would have made a great Bond girl. Catherine responded, “I would have loved to have played Bond!” Despite not getting the chance to play a girl Bond or Bond himself, Catherine has had a successful career and continues to star in a variety of films and television shows.
