CZJ shows her sensitive side
Last updated 15 June 2004

Catherine Zeta Jones

Catherine Zeta-Jones has been talking about her role in new movie 'The Terminal', which is based on a bizarre true story.

It's the tale of an Iranian man who was trapped living in an airport in Paris for 10 years because he didn't have the right papers to leave.

Steven Spielberg directed the film, and in true Hollywood style they've changed the action to the USA, given Tom Hanks the leading role and added a love interest in the form of Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The Welsh actress takes the role of a flight attendant with a sensitive, vulnerable side and says it was an interesting challenge playing someone so like herself:

"I've never had to play a character like Amelia and I said to Steven, 'It's probably closer to myself than anything I've ever played'."

"To wear your heart on your sleeve in that way and to be like an open book that's waiting to be closed properly, as opposed to just slammed."
