Catherine Zeta-Jones, 51, reveals what she cuts out of her diet to stay as slender as she was 30 years ago: ‘I only eat real food because I have to’
Catherine Zeta-Jones is careful with her diet to look as good as she did 30 years ago when she began her career.
The 51-year-old actress – who has Dylan, 20, and Carys, 17, with her husband Michael Douglas – said that she does not indulge in sweets as she ‘only eats real food’ because she ‘has to’ in order to keep her figure.
And the Zorro star added it is her ‘dream’ to gorge on cakes and sweets when she gets ‘really old.’

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, she said: ‘When I get really old I’m going to start taking a lot of vitamins because I only want to be able to eat dessert for the rest of my life.
‘I only actually eat real food because I have to right now. My dream is to only eat desserts, ever. It’s a goal.’
Catherine’s comments come after she told New Beauty she leads a normal and ‘very private’ life despite her fame, and is known as ‘just Cath’ at home.

She explained: ‘I’m not always Catherine Zeta-Jones. Most of the time, I’m just Cath.
‘Cath is the woman who is curled up on the couch with her family. Not everyone knows her, and that’s OK. I’m a very private person,’ added the cover girl.
‘I want to be a private person and I like to have a private life. I’m just not that person you’re going to see posting my bathroom breaks and photos with my husband in the hot tub on social media.’

Catherine – who grew up in Swansea, Wales – also believes she still has the same personality as when she was a cheeky schoolgirl who was often in trouble for breaking the school’s rules on wearing makeup.
She said: ‘There’s still a little bit of that boarding-school girl in me – the girl who got called down to the office for wearing too much makeup.’
