Catherine Zeta-Jones for Elizabeth Arden
BOND'S NEW GIRL
CATHERINE ZETA-JONES is in line to become the next Bond girl, if the latest Hollywood rumours are to be believed. The 33-year-old Oscar winning wife of Michael Douglas apparently received advice about the role from her Entrapment co-star, Sean Connery, who told her that she should take it up on condition that she is not just another character to jump into bed with Pierce Brosnan. "Catherine has spoken to Sean and he's told her to go for it, but only if she isn't just going to be another notch on the Bond bedpost," a source for the Elizabeth Arden model told the Sunday Express. "She wants to play a strong character who is equal to 007 and not just a bitchy villain, maybe even taking the role of a female Bond equivalent. But she won't say yes unless the script is just right." Word is that Catherine also plans to go up against Mariah Carey in a battle to sing the film's accompanying theme tune. "Catherine is incredibly excited about the project," goes on the source. "She realised the potential of this becoming a worldwide hit." (December 1 2003, AM)
