Catherine Zeta-Jones is through being humble and apologizing for her success.

She went on the record with The Mirror to say:

“One thing I’m not is humble any more. I’m sick of being humble. I really am. So sorry I’m rich, so sorry I’m married to a movie star, so sorry I’m not so bad looking.”

The 48-year-old actress credits her early success with her fearlessness, which she admits she lost as she got older. However, she’s reclaimed her confidence in recent years after becoming a mother.

“What shaped me as an actor, more than anything, is getting older. I genuinely lost my mojo, I didn’t like it very much anymore,” she said. “I was on a successful path, there wasn’t any crisis or anything. And I remembered how I started off so young and became successful, because I was fearless. There was no questioning, wondering what people would think.”

“Somewhere along the middle I got frightened again and I started to ¬≠question myself as an actor, my choices,” she further continued. “As I matured as a woman, as a mother, as a wife, I’m not scared anymore.”

Having found her self-assurance again, she’s not going to downplay her achievements anymore. She said, “I come from a working-class family in Wales and I worked to get to where I am. And for many years all of us are victims of the fact that we’ve all got so humble.”
