Zeta's relativity tested

Feb 26 2003

The Western Mail - The National Newspaper Of Wales

 

CATHERINE Zeta Jones's claim that £1m is not a great deal of money was yesterday being tested by a group of schoolgirls who have written to the actress asking her to help them raise money for Nicaraguan children.

Their request came after the Swansea-born star told a court that a £1m deal for photos of her wedding to Michael Douglas was "not that much" for the celebrity couple.

Following her High Court comments, 120 children from Notre Dame RC School in Plymouth have asked her to help children in the Central American country.

The Year Seven pupils have spent four years raising money for the region and are now trying to buy books and equipment for a school.

Teacher Dominique Olney, who has visited Nicaragua twice, said, "We decided to write because she was quoted as saying that £1m did not mean that much to her.

"This is something the girls feel very strongly about. The letters come from the heart and reflect both the admiration for Miss Zeta Jones and the real caring they feel for the Nicaraguan friends they wish to help.

"We are just asking for a little bit of help, not the whole £1m."

* It was also reported yesterday that Catherine had found financial backing for her first Welsh film. She will make her debut as producer in the comedy Coming Out, which will be set in Wales.
