Is it any wonder why more and more Americans don’t go to movies any more?
In an interview with the UK Mirror, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones says she’s sick of being humble about her beauty, her husband Michael Douglas, and her £200 million fortune:
“One thing I’m not is humble any more. I’m sick of being humble. I really am. ‘So sorry I’m rich, so sorry I’m married to a movie star, so sorry I’m not so bad looking.’ No sorrys. Enough!
All that is important to me now is my work. That’s what I love and the rest of my life is a joy because I’ve got two beautiful kids and a healthy, happy husband. It’s all good, and I’m not going to be humble for that either….
If you were a sports star and won an award you would go, ‘Shit yeah, that was the best work I’ve ever done, I rocked!’ Whereas actors are like, ‘Oh I’m so sorry and thanks, can I say thanks?’”
But Mirror points out that Zeta-Jones had never been humble:
She famously said a million pounds wasn’t a lot of money and boasted of collecting houses like other people collect art.
Zeta-Jones has sunken so low that she is reduced to acting in a Facebook video series, the 10-episode Queen America, which will be streamed on Facebook’s new video platform Facebook Watch.
