Zeta-jones: 'I Dressed Badly For Movie Roles'

Hollywood beauty CATHERINE ZETA-JONES wore dowdy clothes for film auditions - because she was convinced her stunning looks would put directors off.
The Traffic star, 39, was adamant her feminine charms would distract movie bosses from her acting potential when she was trying to land big-screen roles.
The actress, who is married to Michael Douglas, says: "I used to dress down and try to look plain and frumpy. I thought I was supposed to look as if I'd spent the night sleeping under a bridge in order for people to take me seriously."
