"She wants to get into the business in all its capacity," Catherine told E! News. "She is a wonderful actress, a wonderful singer and pianist, but she loves fashion." The Welsh beauty continued: "She's very head-strong in her career. A doctor has always been on the cards, but acting is her passion and I've schooled them in that the business is broad these days and you've got to go out there knowing that there's critiques."

Catherine, meanwhile, recently added another string to her bow, by designing a new home collection – which is set to debut on QVC. Speaking about her range, which includes bedding, décor and an array of soft furnishings, Catherine said she wanted it to be "elegant" and "beautiful", while also being "luxurious without being untouchable". "Everything in my line looks like it's much more than it is," she added.
Of Michael's response to her new business venture, she said: "My husband is really happy that I've opened the doors to Casa Zeta-Jones. Because he said, 'Ok, now you can do everybody else's home and leave ours alone for two seconds before you change it up again or buy another one to decorate.'"
