Catherine Zeta-Jones reveals her children will follow in their parents' footsteps

Share this:

Catherine Zeta-Jones has revealed her delight over her children's decision to go into the family business - Hollywood. The 47-year-old praised her two kids, Dylan and Carys, and their acting abilities as she opened up about her loved ones in an interview published in HELLO!. She explained: "I think they're good at it. When they're on stage, you want to look at them. And they're interested in the craft. My sons wants to do a Bachelor of Arts in theatre. My daughter wanted to be a paediatrician until she was five, when she decided acting was better."

The mother-of-two, who is married to fellow actor Michael Douglas, confessed she is more than happy to encourage her children's career ambitions despite the competition within the field. She added: "I'm all for it. A lot of people ask me, 'What do you think about that?' Well, yeah, I could give them statistics of who becomes successful and who doesn't… I could say, 'You know, you'll never get work' - but I'm not that kind of person. I've had a fabulous life as an actress. I'm excited for them to start on this journey, too."

Discussing their other talents, Catherine explained her household is a very "happy" one. "They're very musical, so we sing through life - which is a great treat for me because my husband… well, I love him, but he can't sing a note," she explained. "You know, he claims he sang on the backing track to When the Going Gets Tough, the Touch Gets Going but I know Billy Ocean wouldn't let him. But my daughter plays piano, my son plays bass guitar and lead guitar and I just bought him a huge drum set, to his father's distaste. They love disco, my son's into the Rolling Stones, and it's all very eclectic and wonderful. I love the fact that they love music so much."
