ZETA PIPS CHURCH AS GAME STAR

Mar 30 2005

By Brendon Williams

 

CATHERINE Zeta-Jones has greater selling power than Welsh rival Charlotte Church, according to the makers of Monopoly.

The famous board game will base a Welsh edition on Swansea, the birthplace of the actress, after comparing the two divas.

They say the 19-year-old singer, better known these days for her torrid love life, has fewer prospects.

So her hometown - the Welsh capital Cardiff - has been ditched.

Game designer Mark Marriott said: "It was a head-to-head between Charlotte and Catherine.

"Charlotte has not issued a record for several years and her lifestyle seems to have gone in a certain direction.

"During that same period Catherine became a mother again, won an Oscar and made a hatful of blockbuster films.

"Looking at where they would be in five years, Catherine was a safer bet."

The Welsh Monopoly, in shops late this year, may feature Zeta-Jones's birthplace in Treboeth and mansion in Mumbles.
