The similarities between Zeta Jones and Hollywood legend, Elizabeth Taylor, are striking: the same dark locks and arching eyebrows, but the two are about to have even more in common.

Catherine revealed during a TV interview that she has been thinking of portraying Cleopatra in a musical film. The idea initially was  to make it into a film, but then producers felt it would be more successful if the idea was formed into a Broadway play. Taylor also famously played Cleopatra in the epic 1963 movie. 

After finishing movie, 'Rock of Ages', with Tom Cruise and Alec Baldwin, the Welsh beauty is keen to get back to Broadway. She was Oscar winning for her role singing and dancing in the film 'Chicago' so perhaps it won't be such a change for her after all.
