Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas’ teenagers are following in their famous familys' footsteps. Zeta-Jones has revealed that Dylan, 16, and Carys, 13, are interested in careers in Hollywood.
“They want to,” Zeta-Jones said of her kids’ ambitions during an interview with the Today Show. “I’ve got two great teenagers and I love them, and I’ve had all this wonderful time. I’m so excited to see which way they’re going to go, which tributary they’ll take, their journey. I’m so really excited. And of course they both love the arts and they both play music.”
Nepotism in show business often receives a great deal of backlash, however Zeta-Jones, who has appeared in over 28 feature films, believes her teens will face a different kind of pressure.
"You know it's going to be hard for them because they've got their grandfather, Kirk [Douglas], they've got me, they have Michael,” she shared on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “But they so inherently love it and they're good!"
The Welsh actress, who keeps a fairly private life, has taken to her Instagram account in recent months to share pictures of her tight-knit family. Zeta-Jones also recently opened up about her struggles with bipolar disorder.
While the acting talent clearly runs in the family, the Feud actress values hard-work and a real attitude above all else.
"[My kids] know the hardships and the percentages of who makes it and who doesn't, so I just think that they've got the talent and I know that they have the drive," she said.
