Catherine Zeta Jones quotes
“I am strong-willed, which can be annoying sometimes. And from that I think people assume I have confidence and Hollywood glamour and all that stuff, when actually, in my personal life, sometimes I’m just a goofball.”
“I just feel that I look out for myself and I nurture my strength. I’m not inherently a ball-busting, strong woman. I think there’s a perception of me because some of the characters I’ve played are like that.”
