She has seen astronomical success in her acclaimed acting career and now has two teen children hoping to follow in her footsteps.
Yet Catherine Zeta-Jones, 48, has now revealed she's had enough of being modest about her success, age-defying good looks and marriage to Hollywood royalty Michael Douglas, 71.
In one of her most candid interviews to date, the Welsh actress, 48, unapologetically revealed to The Mirror: "I'm sick of being humble. I really am. So sorry I'm rich, so sorry I'm married to a movie star, so sorry I'm not so bad looking."
Catherine, who has been in the entertainment business since the age of nine, has now confessed that she wants to enjoy the hard work behind her professional and personal success, reports Daily Mail.
The star explained: "The rest of my life is a joy because I've got two beautiful kids and a healthy, happy husband. It's all good, and I'm not going to be humble for that either."
While she recently launched her own interior decor line, Catherine, who has a £200million (NZ$382.2M) net worth, notably won an Academy Award for her role in the 2002 musical Chicago.
In the revealing interview, Catherine went on to offer an example of sports stars winning awards and being able to brag about it being their "best work" - whereas actors have to ask permission to "say thanks."
Coming from a working class background in Wales, Catherine reiterated she worked hard to get to where she is now and is in a position where she wants to celebrate herself.
Last week Catherine proved to be having a wonderful time as she celebrated her son Dylan, 17, graduating from high school.
She was joined by her daughter Carys, 15, and husband Michael.
Catherine and Michael have been happily married for nearly 18 years after meeting at the Deauville Film Festival in France 1999.
In an interview with ET!, Douglas admitted that "mutual respect" was one of the cornerstones of their successful marriage.
"I admire Catherine so much and in so many ways — as a mother, as an actress, and now as a business woman."
