Zeta Jones may try for pop stardom too

Nov 30 2002

Catrin Williams, The Western Mail


EXPECT to see this face everywhere this Christmas. Catherine Zeta Jones is gearing up for super stardom on three fronts this festive season.

Her new film - the musical Chicago - is set to pull thousands when the £50m version opens on traditionally the biggest day in the US cinema calendar, Christmas Day, and on Valentine's Day in the UK.

The performance she gives as the infamous night club singer Velma Kelly already has the Swansea-born actress tipped for Oscar success.

Even co-star Renee Zellwegger was left breathless when she first saw Catherine, 32, go through her paces.

"My jaw dropped to the floor, I didn't speak for 30 minutes," said Renee, the star of Bridget Jones' Diary.

The duo are rumoured to have recorded a song called Moving On, which will play as the film's credits roll. Catherine, expecting her second child with Hollywood star Michael Douglas, is said to be keen to unleash the song on the charts.

A source said, "Catherine has always fancied herself as a pop star and not unreasonably she sees this as a perfect opportunity to have another bash at getting a hit single.

"She can certainly sing, but whether that's enough to get her a hit, well, we'll see."

Present-hunting shoppers may also be inspired by her face the massive publicity campaign launched by cosmetics company Elizabeth Arden. Her stunning features have already been splashed across the latest front covers of both the UK and American editions of Elle magazine.
