Catherine Zeta Jones - Catherine Zeta-jones Loved Being Bad

Catherine Zeta-Jones loved playing a ''baddie'' in 'Rock of Ages'.

The 42-year-old actress stars in the new movie based on the Broadway musical of the same name - which is set during the 80s glam metal era - playing conservative Patricia Whitmore who tries to close down the Bourbon Room and Catherine jumped at the chance to portray an unpopular character.

She said: ''It's just a movie that lends itself to having a blast. It's larger than life and we got to sing all these 80s songs. I had a lot of fun with my character because she's like the odd one out in a way and I got to play the baddie. She's a nightmare of a woman; absolutely horrible.''

While she took time out to raise her kids Dylan, 11 and Carys, nine, Catherine has lots of new projects in the pipeline and is delighted to be back at work.

She said: ''I do enjoy working, I love the camaraderie of being on a set. I love being in the theatre. I just love what I do.

''I feel like at this time in my career, I'm 42, I'm not going to be the ingénue for the rest of my life. So I'm happy with the type of roles that are coming my way.''
