Catherine Zeta-Jones She is one of those Hollywood actresses that most of us remember seeing for the first time in movies. Her beauty was almost hypnotizing, and she used that to her advantage, playing typecast roles that highlighted her as an actress who looks great but can also act. At least after some training.
In the early 2000s, she became a part of Hollywood’s top community when she picked up the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in Chicago. Suddenly, people are starting to pay attention beyond her looks, and more complex scripts are arriving on her doorstep. Marrying Michael Douglas was secondary to a very successful career that would eventually come to a halt. In 2010, Douglas was diagnosed with cancer, which severely affected Zeta-Jones. Due to depression, the actress took a two-year hiatus and became estranged from her marriage.
Her career took off again in 2012, but she’s been very selective about her roles. Anything that meant abandoning her family was not to her liking. We’ve only seen her in a few movies, but she’s completely devoted herself to television, a format that’s clearly more comfortable than the sleazy and corrupt Hollywood. We saw her recently at Netflix’s Wednesday and the Disney television adaptation of national treasure franchise, we sure hope this isn’t her.
This is our journey through the career of a Hollywood icon, as rated by Rotten Tomatoes.
