Oscar winner Catherine Zeta Jones was left petrified after she was nearly kidnapped by a gang of heavily armed Mexican Bandits.
According to the Sun, the incident took place while she was returning from the sets of the movie "Legend Of Zorro," which is currently being filmed in Mexico and co-stars Antonio Banderas.
She was being driven back in a Limousine when her car was pushed off the road by the kidnapper's car. Her bodyguards, who were following behind her car, swung into action just in time as they rammed their car into the bandit's car, giving Catherine's driver time to escape.
The gang was later caught by the police, on the outskirts of Mexico city, and the police confirmed that they were 'armed to the teeth.'
Catherine is said to have been left panic-stricken after the incident but will continue shooting for the film, which is a sequel to the 1998 blockbuster 'Mask of Zorro,' and will remain in Mexico for the next four months.
"Four people have been arrested. The gang was armed to the teeth. Catherine has been left really shaken up by this. She has only been on set for a few days. She was very emotional afterwards and had to be calmed down," the report quoted a source as saying. (ANI)
