Catherine has already been advising her daughter about the attributes she’ll need in order to thrive in Hollywood.

She told E! News: ‘She’s very head strung in her career.

Catherine previously admitted her children would face tremendous pressure if they choose to follow their world-famous parents into the acting industry.

But she also insisted Carys and Dylan both have the ambition and drive needed to become stars in the movie business. 

Speaking earlier this year, Catherine said: ‘You know, I know it’s going to be hard for them because they’ve got their grandfather, Kirk [Douglas], they’ve got me, they have Michael.

‘But they so inherently love it and they’re good!

‘They go to summer camp every year – they do like three musicals and straight plays – and they love it.

‘I’ve had a wonderful life in this business, so if they want to do it, they know the hardships and the percentages of who makes it and who doesn’t. I just think that they’ve got the talent and I know that they have the drive.’

When Catherine is told Carys will have plenty of boys asking her for dates, Zeta-Jones turns the interview in another direction when she says: ‘She’s very headstrong in her career.’ 

Catherine has appeared in dozens of movies including Zorro and Ocean’s Twelve.

Michael, 72, starred on the TV series The Streets Of San Francisco and also the thriller Basic Instinct.

He has also worked on Fatal Attraction, Wall Street and Ant-Man.
