Catherine Zeta-Jones insisted today that she really is a million-dollar woman, saying: "A million bucks is not a lot of money for name and likeness."

The wife of Michael Douglas, who was lambasted for once saying a million dollars was "not that much for us", hit back at her critics.

"Ask Julia Roberts, Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep, anybody in our industry. Everyone knows we get paid a lot of money, so why pretend otherwise? So people will like me? It's dumb," she said.

Zeta-Jones, who will appear in the forthcoming movie Ocean's 12, posed for the July issue of W Magazine.

She told the magazine: "I'm in a world where I get paid for my name and likeness.

"And I get compensated very well for it. Otherwise get some other Catherine Jones to come and be the name on top! A million bucks is not a lot of money for name and likeness."
