Catherine Zeta-Jones has won an Oscar, achieved huge box office success and has a loving family – but something else has finally happened to make all of her "dreams come true". The actress revealed on Wednesday that she is over the moon after discovering that she was a clue on an episode of popular American quiz show Jeopardy. Sharing a screenshot on her Instagram of said clue, which read: "2002: Catherine Zeta-Jones as Velma sings on death row", she excitedly wrote: "Who is...? Oh wait that's me! What a dream come true to have been a @jeopardy clue last night! Did anyone see it?" The answer was, of course, Catherine's Oscar-winning role in Chicago.
