    Wow, hasn't she done well! She has it all: the looks, the talent, the husband (the great man himself, Michael Douglas), the money, the fame, the Oscar, the looks (did I mention that?) ... doesn't it make you green with envy?

    But she has done it the hard way. Through ambition and talent she has arrived as an A-lister. From Darling Buds of May to Chicago is one hell of a journey.

    Proud of her Welsh roots (she speaks fluent Welsh), her production company is called Milkwood Films, named after the play Under Milkwood by Welsh writer Dylan Thomas.

    All in all, there is nothing negative I can find to say about her. I just go green with envy whenever I think of her.

    Thanks for that, Catherine Jones.

    She is the daughter of Dai and Pat Jones, and the Zeta in her name is her grandmother's name, who was named after a boat. Her mother was an Irish seamstress, and her father was a Welsh sweet factory owner. She has two brothers, David Jones (b. 1967), a development executive and Lyndon Jones (b.1972), who works at her production company.

    At four years of age, she performed in a church drama group, and at ten she starred in the Grand Theatre's production of Annie. By the time she was seventeen she was performing on stage in London. In 1983 she was given the lead role in The Pyjama Game. However, her lucky break came when she was in the chorus of 42nd Street, and the lead fell sick and Zeta Jones was promoted. She kept the role until 1990, when she had her movie debut as Scheherazade in Les Mille et Une Mille.

    Catherine Zeta Jones then appeared in a number of TV programmes. She played Mariette in ITV's The Darling Buds of May; Eustacia Vye in The Return of the Native and the lead in Catherine the Great. Her early films included Christopher Columbus: The Discovery (1992), Splitting Heirs (1993), and The Phantom (1996).

    After her lead role in the American TV mini-series Titanic, she enjoyed more success on the big screen in The Mask of Zorro (1998). The film was also important to her in that it led to her meeting her future husband, Michael Douglas. In November 2000 the couple married at the New York Plaza, which was later to lead to a legal feud with Hello magazine over unauthorised wedding photographs.

    2000 also saw the release of High Fidelity, and Traffic, where Catherine played the pregnant wife of a major drugs dealer. In real life she was pregnant too. Michael Douglas also starred in the film.

    The following year she starred in Intolerable Cruelty, and then in 2003 she won an Oscar for best supporting actress for her role in the musical movie, Chicago (2002). In 2002, she was chosen to be the face of cosmetics company Elizabeth Arden. In April 2003 she gave birth to her second child.

    As well as having their two children, Dylan and Carys, Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas have six labradors.

    Her film roles since 2003 have included The Terminal, Ocean's Twelve and No Reservations.

    She regularly practices pilates and yoga.
