Meet OUR Catherine Zeta Jones

Dec 29 2004

By Dale Williams

 

Model Lesley Jayne Wright is carving out a "perfick" career for herself as a Catherine Zeta Jones lookalike.

Lesley, from Upper Gornal in Dudley, has just jetted back from Europe after attending a glittering premiere of the Ocean's 12 movie in Switzerland.

She also took part in work as her superstar alter-ego in Belgium.

Lesley said she took the plunge to be a lookalike only in July after years of people telling her she was the spit of Catherine.

She added: "Since I left school I have been doing modelling and promotions work but people have always said how much I look like her, even from her early days in the Darling Buds of May.

"The job abroad was great, it was the first time I've performed out of the country as Catherine and I felt like a real star.

Magazine

"I even had a body guard and a driver to take me wherever I wanted to go. It was a bit of a comedown coming back to Upper Gornal.

"I was working with lookalikes of the other Hollywood names in the film such as George Clooney and Brad Pitt."

She said she had also done a magazine photo shoot and worked with a Sean Connery lookalike.

Lesley is looking out for more work as Catherine and had really got the bug for appearing as her.

She added: "I copy the way she dresses and looks very carefully, wearing mainly black and red. At 5ft 10in I'm a little bit taller than Catherine and maybe a bit slimmer.

"But I am a fan of hers as well, she's a great star. I haven't encountered a Michael Douglas look-a-like yet though."
