Catherine Zeta-Jones is rumoured to be in the running to play Dame Elizabeth Taylor in a Hollywood film about the late actress's tumultuous love life.

According to show business sources in Los Angeles, the Welsh beauty who recently underwent treatment for bipolar disorder, is on the shortlist along with Angelina Jolie.

Swansea-born Catherine, an Oscar winner herself, is said to have expressed a strong interest in the part because of Taylor's long association with Wales through Richard Burton, Dame Elizabeth's great love and husband in two of her eight marriages.

'To play Liz Taylor would be a dream come true for Catherine. It would certainly be one of the most testing roles of her career,' the Daily Express quoted a Hollywood source as saying.
