Catherine ZJ says 'on your bike' to glamour

There are few stars who embody the word glamour in quite the same way as Oscar winner Catherine Zeta-Jones. When the situation calls for it, however, the Welsh actress is just as capable of becoming a dowdy homemaker, as newly released photos of her at work on the set of her new movie demonstrate.

Michael Douglas' beautiful wife swapped her sexy red carpet gowns for a thick quilted coat, woolly scarf and bicycle helmet when she filmed a scene for the flick Mostly Martha. In her latest production the Swansea-born actress plays a top chef whose life is turned upside down when she suddenly becomes the guardian of her young niece.

In real life Catherine has plenty of parenting experience, as she has two young children, Dylan and Carys, at home in Bermuda. And the 35-year-old will doubtless be back to her glitzy self when she plays silver screen siren Lana Turner in the forthcoming drama Stompanato.

She stars opposite Keanu Reeves in the film, which tells the story of hoodlum Johnny Stompanato. And the beautiful brunette is hoping to convince The Aviator's Leonardo DiCaprio to reprise his role as Howard Hughes, who enjoyed a romance with the Tinseltown goddess, in the flick. "It would be awesome to get him, even for just a cameo," she said.
