Fans of Catherine Zeta-Jones recently got a glimpse of the award-winning actress and her two children.
The Mask Of Zorro star, who snagged an Academy Award for her role in Chicago, is now a mother of two teenage children. Even though their father is legendary actor Michael Douglas, it seems that both children — 18-year-old Dylan and 15-year-old Carys — have inherited their good looks from the mother.
The actress was present at Wales’ National Day Gala on March 1 in New York. She was draped in an off-the-shoulder velvet dress, which featured a thigh-high slit and a romantic floral design around the center of the neckline. And while she certainly attracted a lot of attention, it was her 15-year-old daughter, Carys — who also wore an off-the-shoulder dress — who drove the internet into overdrive. As soon as pictures from the event were released, social media users could not help but compare both children to Catherine.
The 49-year-old actress received an honorary fellowship from The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama at the event, reports Hollywood Life. And while that is another achievement for the Chicago star, raising two beautiful children — who seem to have inherited her grace and charm — is no mean feat either.
The internet simply couldn’t get enough of the three of them together, with users pointing out how Carys reminded them of a young Catherine from some two decades ago.
Perhaps some of the similarity is intentional, as Carys herself noted in an interview with Town and Country. The 15-year-old explained that much of her fashion inspiration came from her mother.
“Fashion has been so important in my life, because my mom is like a fashion icon to me. I’m always looking through her closet.”
Zeta-Jones was quick to return the compliment, saying that her 15-year-old knew how to balance the act.
“She’s modern but age-appropriate,” she said. “I’ve never had to turn to Carys and say, ‘I think that’s a little inappropriate.’ Once she said, ‘Mom, I really like this romper.’ I went, ‘Mmm, but don’t you think it’s cut a little too long? Shouldn’t it be shorter?’ She went, ‘Mom, you’re the only mother in the world that would tell a 15-year-old girl that the romper should be shorter.'”
It would certainly come as no surprise to see either child following their parents’ footsteps by pursuing a career in show business, and their frequent public appearances are pointing in that direction. In all likelihood, Catherine Zeta-Jones’ fans will not mind that one bit.
