Why Won’t Hollywood Cast These Celebrities?

Catherine Zeta-Jones

Catherine Zeta-Jones is beautiful, talented and fascinating to watch on screen. This former A-lister appeared in such hits as the Mask of Zorro, Chicago, and Entrapment. Since then she’s appeared in some decent films but hasn’t recaptured her glory days. Although she was cast in Ocean’s Twelve, she didn’t appear in the recent Ocean’s Eight. It’s well known that aging actresses have a tough time (unless you’re Helen Mirren), it appears that at 48-years-old, Zeta-Jones is too old to cast.

Bugsy Malone


Catherine says that originally she wasn’t interested in being a movie star. It was all about the stage. She said, “I didn’t even think about movies where I came from. I wanted to be on the stage. When I was 10, I did Annie in the West End. I did Bugsy Malone when I was 11 and 12. And then at 16, David Merrick saw me in 42nd Street. I took over the lead and he cast me. I was there for two and a half years.”
