Chat Catherine Zeta Jones says she would like to act in a comedy with husband Michael Douglas

Waiting for meatier rolesCatherine Zeta-Jones

The lovely Catherine Zeta Jones who was last seen as the mayor’s wife in Rock of Ages , plays a similar role in Broken City . The Welsh beauty talks about her role and future plans.

Tell us about your role in Broken City. What's the best thing about the film and your role?

My character in the film is a catalyst. I’m playing the mayor’s wife. She has a complex relationship with her husband as is often the case with real life political couples. Politicians’ wives sometimes put on a face to protect their partner. To the outside world they are this quintessential first family, but a bright light sometimes reveals scandal and corruption. She is what every woman wants to be and has everything they would love to possess, but that is not what’s reflected behind closed doors. It was very draining emotionally to play such a character. So nothing as heavy for me for a while now.

You've earned success and fans in abundance, what's next on your wish list?

I remember coming here to the film industry and joining a list of girls from different parts of the world all trying to prove themselves. I feel thrilled that Hollywood accepted me and I got to play the kind of roles that I did. I guess as an actress you try and reinvent yourself with each new role so yes, I would like to sound greedy and say I am still waiting for meatier roles to come my way. I would love to try my hand at more European movies and probably act in a comedy with Michael (Douglas), now that would be exciting.
