She became an international star in 1998 with The Mask of Zorro, but had started her showbiz career at the age of 15 when she began auditioning for West End productions.

And in a new interview, Catherine Zeta-Jones, 51, has spoken out on the MeToo movement, saying that being with Michael Douglas, 76, may have saved her from ‘vulnerable’ situations.  

The Welsh actress acknowledged she ‘was very young’ when she started out, but insisted she never felt unsafe.

In the context of the Me Too era, a movement against sexual abuse and sexual harassment, Catherine was asked by Radio Times if she has ever felt unsafe as a Hollywood actress.

She replied: ‘I was very young when I started out. Whenever I had to audition, I was never in an environment like that.

‘And when I moved to Hollywood, it wasn’t long before I met my future husband, so everyone knew that I was with Michael Douglas. 

‘I don’t know whether it [being with Michael] was beneficial, but perhaps it meant I wasn’t in environments where I would have been vulnerable otherwise.

Catherine and Michael tied the knot in 2000 at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, after first meeting at the Deauville Film Festival in France, in 1998.   

The couple are now parents to daughter Carys Zeta Douglas, 18, and son Dylan Michael Douglas, 20. 

Elsewhere in the interview, Catherine talked about lockdown. 

The actress said she was ‘perfectly happy to be snuggled with my dog and a good book’, rather than following the trend of baking banana bread and watching every film.

Catherine added even though the family  are ‘news junkies’, she made a pact with Michael to turn it off to not become overwhelmed by the magnitude of the pandemic.

The Welsh beauty said they instead enjoyed golf before the courses were lockdown and watched old British comedies like Blackadder and Only Fools and Horses.   

Earlier this month, Catherine talked about how her daughter Carys wants to follow in her footsteps.

The Oscar-winning actress told Drew Barrymore than her mini-me is determined to get into acting, and even though she excels at history and politics, being in front of the camera is her passion.

She has even been warned by father Michael Douglas, whose dad is the recently passed Kirk Douglas, that if she pursues Hollywood she will always be referred to as ‘the daughter of.’

Catherine also said her son, Dylan, is also interested in being an actor, and she was honest with Drew about what her kids will face as she talked via Zoom with the star.

‘Their love of the craft of acting is so strong that even when Michael, their brains they are doing politics and history in school, but their passion is acting.

‘And they’ve never done anything professional, but they would like to go into acting.

‘And you know you come from a family where your name is synonymous, very much like Michael, very similar stories where you both had to be, ‘The kids of.” Kirk was a massive star thanks to Spartacus when Michael got his start. 

But Catherine came up on her own in London. ‘I never had that I was like, ‘Audition? I am in. They don’t want me, I’ll just queue up around the corner and line up again,” she joked.

‘If you are successful in business, your kids have, it’s not an easy way in, in fact one has to prove oneself more, so even with that deterrent my kids are like, ‘No, sorry we still want to do it.”

‘And I’ve had a wonderful life being an actor and if they get half the joy that I’ve had. All I want is my kids to be happy and healthy, everything else is a bonus right,’ stated the Chicago star.
