As many fans will know, the actress Catherine Zeta-Jones had a daughter with her equally famous husband, Michael Douglas, in 2003. And now, Carys, their second child, is old enough to give interviews and talk about her life – and she has some fascinating insights to offer. For instance, Carys and her mother recently chatted with Town and Country magazine, and the teenager made one revelation that might come as a surprise to some. Why so? Well, despite the fact that her parents are wealthy, talented and famous, she has apparently still been picked on at school.
Carys seems to take after her mother in terms of both looks and talent. And should she want to pursue a career in Hollywood, that can surely only be a good thing. Catherine Zeta-Jones is, after all, noted for both her acting ability – she won an Oscar for her performance in the 2002 musical Chicago – and her captivating beauty.
Yet Zeta-Jones didn’t come from riches, as her daughter now doubtless does. When she was growing up, her mother was a seamstress and her father had a sweet factory. Indeed, it was apparently only after a £100,000 ($128,500) bingo win that her parents were able to afford her dancing lessons.
