Catherine: I want more funny roles

Catherine Zeta-Jones would like more comedy roles

Catherine Zeta-Jones has revealed that she would like to be in more comedies.

The Welsh actress has starred in romantic comedies such as Intolerable Cruelty, No Reservations and Lay The Favourite, as well as big-screen musicals Chicago and Rock Of Ages, and would like to do more.

"If anything, I'd like to do a few more comedies. For somebody who can't tell a joke, I love working on comedies. I love reading a funny script and watching a funny movie. So maybe that's something to look into," she said.

The 43-year-old, who is married to Hollywood star Michael Douglas, admitted she is drawn to a good script.

"But it's all about the script - if it doesn't jump off the page, it's probably not going to jump off the screen either, so I admire great writing, great directors and a great cast," she added.

Catherine has reunited with filmmaker Steven Soderbergh for the third time on Side Effects, which also stars Channing Tatum, Rooney Mara and Jude Law. The director has said that he plans to take a sabbatical after this release.

"He's just a superb filmmaker, a very intimate director. Each time I've worked with him, it's been a complete delight," she gushed.

"He's extremely smart, one of the nicest guys I've ever met and I think the film goers and the film industry will miss him solely when he retires - Side Effects will be his last theatrical release so I'm very honoured to be part of his last movie. Sad at the same time, but just happy that I've had this collaboration with him over the years," she added.

:: Side Effects opens in cinemas on March 8.

If your current home can't support the lifestyle changes in your household, it is time to move. Search for a quiet hideaway where you can all rest and relax after a hard day's work.More
