Catherine Zeta-Jones: a life in film

Starting out in musical theatre, this week's Stylist cover star Catherine Zeta-Jones was a leading lady from the very beginning, commanding attention in shows such as Annie and 42nd Street, before hitting our screens (and, we have to admit, stealing our hearts) as Mariette in the TV series The Darling Buds of May. The Hollywood hills soon beckoned and Catherine quickly conquered the big screen with a series of action-packed roles in films such as The Mask of Zorro and Entrapment, while the year 2000 brought a Golden Globe nomination (for her role in Traffic) and marriage to Michael Douglas. Catherine's film career continues to go from strength to strength, with memorable roles in Ocean's Twelve, The Terminal and Chicago, and now she's set to star opposite Tom Cruise in her latest movie Rock of Ages, out this week. Not bad for a small-town girl from Wales.

Take a look back at Catherine's glittering film career in our gallery below, and read Stylist's exclusive interview with the star here.
