The actress has said her dream is to gorge on cakes and sweets when she gets really old, as she only eats natural food because she has to in order to keep her figure.

“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,” she says, speaking to the Wall Street Journal.

Catherine’s comments come after she recently said she leads a normal and very private life despite her fame and is known as just Cath at home.

“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. 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 school rules on wearing makeup. “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,” she adds.
