Catherine Zeta Jones was born in September of 1969 in Wales. She was named after her grandmothers and grew up in the prosperous Swansea suburb of Mumbles. She took tap dancing lessons at an early age and won a British championship when she was 11. Jones attended the independent Arts Educational Schools in West London for a three year course in musical theater. She made her professional debut playing Annie in a theater production. She played Tallulah in another theater production of Bugsy Malone, and worked the chorus in a theater production of The Pajama Game.
Jones had a short musical career and made a few singles but failed to have much success. Jones found some moderate success with some television programs including The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles and the miniseries Catherine the Great, but it was Steven Spielberg who noted her performance in the miniseries Titanic and had her cast in the lead role in the movie The Mask of Zorro in 1998. It was this film that made her rich and famous. She since went on to make other successful movies including Entrapment, Traffic, and a musical role in the very successful movie Chicago.
Jones is perhaps just a famous for her marriage to fellow actor Michael Douglas Jr. as she is for her movie roles. She quit working for a time to support her husband as he went through treatment for throat cancer. Soon after, Jones sought treatment for her own health problems after she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The couple spent time apart in 2013 but have since reconciled. Jones recently signed a 9 film deal with a major film studio and her endorsement agreement with T-Mobile earned her a cool $20 million.
Jones owns a luxurious mansion in Wales, valued at $4 million as well as a multi-million dollar estate overlooking the ocean in Pacific Palisades, California. This power couple spends most of their time at their Bermuda estate. She has a current net worth of $45 million, which is sure to increase if her new films are as successful as her last ones.
