As a child of two Hollywood A-list actors, what you decide to do for a career as you get older is under the watchful eye of the media.
In February, Catherine Zeta-Jones revealed that both her children will be joining their parents in Hollywood.
Zeta-Jones who had Dylan and Carys with her husband of over 20-years, Michael Douglas, opened up about their acting abilities.
“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.”
Dylan Michael, who is 17, and Carys Zeta who is 14, will be encouraged by both the Entrapment actress and the Basic Instinct actor.
“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,” Zeta-Jones said.
She’s happy to bring musical theater into the family’s every day life.
“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.”
Her children have now begun to step out into the limelight and there’s no doubt that her daughter is turning some heads.
