Catherine Zeta-Jones: Babe of the week #26 (June 2012)


Catherine Zeta-Jones
(Rock of Ages, Traffic, The Mask of Zorro)
Thumbs up= Thumbs down= Thumbs sideways=



Born in a working class area of Swansea, West Glamorgan, Catherine Zeta-Jones’ interest in performing began early when a pre-teen Catherine would invite friends and family to watch her sing and dance on the living room table. Early stage beginnings were humble as a ten-year-old Zeta-Jones performed as part of a Catholic congregation-performing troupe. But it wasn’t long before the adolescent would-be actress was appearing in West End shows such as Annie and Bugsy Malone. Despite a brief hiccup in the form of a misjudged singing career, Zeta-Jones’ career trajectory continued steadily upwards in a series of low budget and unmemorable films. The Phantom and the CBS miniseries Titanic led to her breakthrough role in The Mask of Zorro.
Set in 1987 Los Angeles, Rock of Ages tells the story of small town girl Sherrie and city boy Drew, who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Their rock 'n' roll romance is told through the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Joan Jett, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Whitesnake and more.

Well on the downside she is a little hard faced at times, and I can never quite shake the feeling that when she plays a bitch in a film she’s essentially just playing herself, but she was adorable in the Darling Buds of May and having just seen Rock of Ages a few days ago the way she looks at the end reminds me why I like her.
Up, but only just!

Rock of Ages is set in 1987? Coincidentally, Zeta-Jones would've been a better BOTW in 1987.

She comes off as high maintenence, but she also has a child-like demeanor that I find appealing.

Then there's the obvious, as you can see in the original post.

Thumbs up.

The 1991 movie Splitting Heirs was probably the first time I saw her. She looked fairly mature for a 22 year-old...



Loved her in The Mask of Zorro too...



She does look like she has some Spanish or Moorish blood in her doesn't she? When asked if she did, she said she didn't know.

One of my favorite movies of all time...



From what I heard, Sean Connery wanted her as the female lead. Seems like a lot of people see her somewhere and want her for something. Spielberg saw her in Titanic and wanted her for Zorro, and Michael Douglas wanted to meet her after she caught his eye. They seem to have a good marriage. I didn't think it would last, but it's clear that the two of them are dedicated to eachother and their vacation homes.

She's a darling bud of May, though...
Which reminds me, she did a nude photoshoot for the May 2010 issue of Allure magazine.



Do your own search to see the rest.

Figures you'd say that, considering she would've been barely legal in 1987.

I'm going sideways, she's attractive but there's a "quality" there that's a bit of a turn off.

Well on the downside she is a little hard faced at times
I think that's what it is... "hard faced."

I don't know when this was taken, but this is what she looked like around that time.



And here's another one from her early years...

Some of the early photos might be from 'The Darling Buds of May'. Not my favourite show, but every time she came on screen she absolutely illuminated it, without a doubt. And she has aged quite well, saw her on the Daily Show t'other night.

A definite up.

Catherine is a very beautiful woman,
with a nice touch of elegance(a very classy lady..)
Also sexy, but somehow in a more unique way than many other stars.
And I agree that she has certainly aged very well, like a fine wine

Thumbs sideways for me.
The only movie I've ever found her to be attractive in was The Terminal.
