Being a movie star may make CATHERINE ZETA JONES, like all celebrities, the occasional butt of a bad joke, but her philosophy about it is simple - it's life. Her marriage to MICHAEL DOUGLAS and the birth of their first child DYLAN has brought the AMERICA's SWEETHEARTS (2001) star more press coverage than ever before.
But, as she says, "It's life, and if some people in the media think they can make fun of you, let them, and just laugh it off. " She continues, "I have a great life, and as an actor you have to take the good press with the bad."
"It's like when you go to the OSCARS and there's so much pressure now about what you wear. I can tell you that a lot of actresses are terrified of being ridiculed about their outfits. But if you think about it, it's all rather silly. " (ACW/HET/ES)
