A Golden Globe nominee for her sensational performance in the musical Chicago  (and  the drama Traffic) Catherina Zeta-Jones is now on Feud: Bette and Joan, the latest hit by Ryan Murpy. She’s a music aficionada, who shares her passion with the family.

Music is very important to me and in my family. My kids keep me up to date with what is going on, but their taste in music is so retro and so fabulous…They love disco, Studio 54 radio is on in my car constantly. We saw Jersey Boys like six times, they love The Four Seasons.  My son is into The Rolling Stones. My husband, I love him, but he really cannot sing a note. And his claim to fame is that he sang on “When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going” and I know that’s a lie. And he even tells my son yeah, I am singing on the backing track, and I am going, No you are not. Billy Ocean wouldn’t let you sing on the backing track.  But it’s all a kind of a joke.  My daughter plays piano, my son plays bass guitar and lead guitar, and I just bought him a huge drum set to his father’s distaste. But it’s a digital one and he can put the headsets on.”
