Although married into Hollywood royalty Catherine Zeta-Jones has made it clear she'll never stop flying the flag for Wales. After naming her children Dylan and Carys, and buying a house in Mumbles, the raven-haired star has taken her promotion of the principality even further.

Having signed sporting ace Gavin Henson for a role in rugby flick Coming Out, Catherine has now got his girlfriend Charlotte Church on board to sing the theme tune.

The movie, which is Catherine's pet project, stars Alan Cumming as a gay cabaret performer who inherits a rugby club from his father and has to step into the breach to halt its decline. "He's doing West Side Story and has to go back home to get these fat, drinking, smoking Welsh guys into shape to win the tournament," explains the Oscar-winning actress.

The Legend Of Zorro star has been taking a keen interest in her fellow countrywoman since last August when the two Welsh lasses met up at a celebrity golf tournament. Catherine and husband Michael Douglas teed off alongside Gavin and the two ladies are said to be firm friends. "Catherine sees Charlotte as a younger version of herself," a source told the Daily Express. "She thinks she's incredibly talented."

The Crazy Chick singer may also make a cameo appearance in the picture, when filming starts in February just down the road from Swansea.
