Zeta-Jones values her face at $1m
Staff Reporter
Posted Sun, 13 Jun 2004

Tabloids were abuzz last week when actress Catherine Zeta-Jones (34) self-valued her face at $1-million, saying: "A million bucks is not a lot of money for name and likeness."

After posing for a photo shoot for the July issue of 'W' magazine, the Welsh wife of veteran actor Michael Douglas told reporters: "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.

"When it comes to the red carpet, my philosophy is, I'll stand there all night long if you really want, but please, please, don't come harassing me," she said.

Hello! magazine case

About the Hello! magazine case, for which she and Douglas went to court over unauthorised wedding pictures, amid the rumours that it was all about the money, she says: "Does anyone think Iíd go to that extent if I werenít so wild about the injustice?" she said.

"It was the principle: You're not invited to my wedding, so don't come. Okay?"

Zeta-Jones stars in the upcoming 'Oceans 12', opposite Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Matt Damon.

Responding to rumours that she is actually older than she lets on, she said: "Iíve been documented since I was 11 years old. If I look older, I'm so sorry. Iím not a klutzy, stupid woman, and you know, that comes with maturity.

"I've got money that I worked for. I didn't grow up with a silver spoon. Iíve worked really bloody hard and I don't get it why people donít go, 'Oh, good for her'."
