Hollywood star Catherine Zeta-Jones says she felt at home in Bermuda
Hollywood royalty Catherine Zeta-Jones felt “most at home” when she lived in Bermuda, she has revealed in a magazine interview.
The globe-trotting Welsh star, married to superstar actor Michael Douglas, said she valued the privacy the family had on the island.
She added: “My kids Dylan and Carys were little and we were living in Bermuda.
“It was a completely different environment, but the consistency was reminiscent of the way I was brought up.
“Michael or I would work and the other would pick up the children from school.”
Ms Zeta-Jones said: “Their childhood memories are so wonderful - waking up and being at the beach, swimming in the ocean, climbing rocks and trees.
“I was young, I'd won an Oscar, it was before my husband's cancer, which was really traumatic for him and our family, so it was a golden time.
“And there was total privacy, which was paramount for us bringing up our children.
“We have great, fond memories of being there.”
The couple lived in a luxury home in Warwick between 2001 and 2009.
Ms Zeta-Jones was speaking in an interview with UK design magazine Homes & Gardens.
She said: “I have been on the move since I was 15 and have lived in London, Paris, LA, New York, and Bermuda – this is why home for me is always where my family is".
Mr Douglas’s parents were Bermudian actress Diana Dill and Oscar-winning actor Kirk Douglas.
Ms Zeta-Jones has had a TV, West End theatre and silver screen career and was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2011.
