Catherine Zeta-JonesThe Ocean's Twelve tomfoolery continues as Brad Pitt now praises his co-star Catherine Zeta-Jones -- for her drinking skills! Reportedly, the gorgeous Welsh brunette can hold more alcohol than her male co-stars.

Pitt was excited to see Zeta-Jones adding to the already stellar cast, as his character Rusty Ryan's love interest, Isabel Lahiri. also said Pitt was astounded by her professionalism in the face of practical jokers Matt Damon and George Clooney. With most of them just mucking around on set with director Steven Soderbergh, Brad was surprised by Catherine's seriousness in making the film.

'I think the biggest joke was on Catherine because she actually thought we were making a movie,' said Pitt. 'Being the new kid, nobody told her because she was up running lines and breaking down her character. We were just excited to get Catherine because she brings this great elegance to it.'

In deference to her drinking skills, the awed star said, 'The great thing about Catherine is there is this great beauty and elegance, but at the same time, she'll drink any one of you under the table!'

Ocean's Twelve releases worldwide on December 10.
