Catherine Zeta-Jones was our actress of the year last year. Here she is at the Oscars which were held at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles This section is dedicated to the Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, still often remembered in Britain for her sultry role in the 1980s television series The Darling Buds of May and known throughout the world for her dazzling performances in movies such as Zorro, The Terminal and Chicago. She won an Academy Award in 1993 for Best Supporting Actress for the latter.

Catherine began acting at age 11, playing in a production of Annie and at 13 she starred in a West End production of the musical Bugsy Malone. When Catherine was 16 she took over the lead in David Merrick's 42nd Street. While the global audience was unaware of her work, Catherine was rapidly becoming a star in the UK. In fact, with the popularity of The Darling Buds of May, Catherine became a mega-star in Blightey.

Coupled with her role in the four-hour television docu-drama Titanic, Catherine got some attention in the United States. Most importantly, she was noticed by Steven Spielberg, who recommended Catherine for the female lead in The Mask of Zorro. She followed up this strong Hollywood debut (which this is now considered despite her appearance in 1986's The Phantom) with the equally successful Entrapment with Sean Connery.

Zeta-Jones lightened things up in 2003, making audiences laugh alongside George Clooney in the Cohen Brothers' movie Intolerable Cruelty, then with Tom Hanks in The Terminal. The next year, she re-teamed with Clooney for Ocean's Twelve, before joining up with another co-star from her past, Antonio Banderas, for the sequel to their film The Legend of Zorro.

In 2012, she featured in Lay the Favorite starring Bruce Willis, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. She also appeared in Playing for Keeps with Gerard Butler and Rock of Ages, alongside Tom Cruise and Alec Baldwin; unfortunately the films were not as successful as some of her past ventures.

In 2013 she starred in Broken City and Steven Soderbergh's psychological thriller Side Effects. The latter was their third collaboration and Soderbergh's last movie before he retired.

Quotation: "The world is full of beautiful women. But I know what I do have is talent, and I want to be here for the long run. I'm not obsessed with myself, and I try not to rely on any kind of beauty. That's why I try to put a certain oomph into my performances, some fun and physicality. And right now, I'm not going to be cast as a wallflower anytime soon, but I can do it and someday I'd like to try."
