Catherine Zeta-Jones: Beauty and Exotic Looks and Now a New Honor

Today,February 24, 2011, Catherine Zeta-Jones, the beautiful and glamorous Hollywood movie star, received the Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace. While this makes her a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, it does not automatically make her a Dame as would receiving the Dame Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire (GBE) or the Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) would, but it is just one step below and definitely a glorious achievement.

Catherine received the award not only for her work and accomplishments in the movie industry but also for her devotion to charity work. She has worked with numerous organizations including Broadway Cares, Cinema For Peace, the Global Missing Children's Network, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, and the Worldwide Orphans Foundation. Clearly she has a special place in her heart for children, especially those children in need. It is so wonderful that this amazing woman has as much beauty in her heart as she does in her physical looks!

Of course, Catherine Zeta-Jones is well known by movie fans for such films as The Mask of Zorro , The Haunting , Chicago , Intolerable Cruelty , and The Legend of Zorro . She has won numerous awards including an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Chicago , which is a film many fans would consider her best work. She has fans worldwide and we all share our joy with Catherine for this amazing personal feat.

She is married to film legend Michael Douglas who has been in poor health in recent months but looked fit as he accompanied his wife to receive her CBE. The couple also have two wonderful children who also attended the ceremony. Certainly her family is as proud of her as she is herself. Zeta-Jones has stated that her parents are immensely proud which is very appropriate for any parents wanting their child to succeed. What could be more of an honor?

Thankfully, it does not appear the popular movie star will be content to sit back on her laurels. Instead she is already working on new projects and is rumored to be returning soon to the screen with Antonio Banderas with whom she made the Zorro films. The pair is said to be involved in the film biography Dali , concerning the life of surrealist painter Salvador Dali. The movie has been delayed while matters are worked regarding the production, but the film is expected in 2012.
