Why Zeta-Jones won't play Vivien Leigh

Prev     Next


Catherine Zeta-Jones has apparently turned down several movie roles, including the chance to portray Vivien Leigh, to spend more time with cancer-stricken husband Michael Douglas.


The Oscar-winning actress had been approached about playing the vivacious second wife of Laurence Olivier in a film about Olivier making The Prince And The Showgirl with Marilyn Monroe at Pinewood studios in 1956.


The movie My Week With Marilyn is being told from the perspective of Colin Clark, who worked as a gofer on the film, reports the Daily Mail.


Catherine was approached by executives at Weinstein Co, the studio producing the picture with David Parfitt, to take the Vivien Leigh part.


While it's not the weightiest of roles, it does have four or five crucial scenes, plus ­Vivien's the second-most glamorous character in the movie after Marilyn.


Marilyn is being played by Michelle Williams, Clark by Eddie Redmayne, Olivier by Kenneth Branagh, and Sybil Thorndike by Judi Dench.

Sir Paul McCartney has sent a hand-written letter to jailed George Michael to lift his spirits.


Macca wrote to the singer while he serves time for his drug-fuelled car smash.


Pals said the Beatles legend, 68, "empathised" with the Wham! star's plight after he spent ten days in prison in Tokyo in 1980 after being caught with cannabis.


George, 47, has served two weeks of his eight-week sentence and could be out on licence in a fortnight from Category C jail Highpoint in Suffolk.


'He got the letter on Monday and was really chuffed. Sir Paul said he would see him soon and told George to keep his chin up,' the Sun quoted a source as saying.


'The letter was two pages long and George read it over and over again,' the source added.

Bond Girl Gemma Arteton's granny has committed suicide by stabbing herself into heart, an inquest heard.

Helen Sarfas, 69, who suffered from manic depression, was distressed over what she saw as a lack of psychiatric care and used a kitchen knife to stab herself several times while in bed.

Husband Rodney Peacock, 85, discovered her body and found the blade still sticking in her as he tried to wake her at their home in Gillingham, Kent.

Gemma, 24 -- MI6 agent Strawberry Fields in the Daniel Craig Bond film Quantum of Solace -- was not at the hearing. The actress was unhappy when her gran gave a newspaper "unflattering" childhood pictures of her.

'My nan, God bless her soul, was quite delusional before she died,' the Sun quoted Quantum of Solace star as saying.

Peacock also said that, 'she was unhappy with the psychiatric system. It was bad and must be exposed.'

He told her family she would have died within 30 seconds of stabbing herself.
