Catherine Zeta-Jones in Julien X Gabriela at the SAG Awards: yikes or fine?

SAG Awards Arrivals 2019

Catherine Zeta Jones came to the SAG Awards to support her husband, Michael Douglas, who was nominated for The Kaminsky Method. It feels like we barely see CZJ these days, but she turns out every so often at awards shows, mostly because Michael is nominated for stuff. So… when I can go months without seeing her, I’m always sort of startled by whatever new face work she’s gotten done. Last night, I was extra-startled. Lord, Catherine has done some THINGS to her beautiful face and I just don’t get it. Her gown was Julien X Gabriela – not very flattering, but this whole appearance was a tragedy from head to toe. Also: the cat-eye makeup is doing her no favors.

Helena Bonham Carter is three years older than Catherine Zeta-Jones, 53 to CZJ’s 50. Who would you rather look like, bonkers-but-untweaked HBC or tweaked CZJ? I mean. HBC was at the SAGs to gather up awards for The Crown. Olivia Colman didn’t bother to come, even though Olivia was nominated for The Crown AND Fleabag. HBC was joined by Josh O’Connor and Erin Doherty. I think Helena looks a bit messy/kooky but we expect that from her.

    Catherine is only 50?! She looks at least ten years older, my gosh.

    • Snappyfish says:

      There is a story that went round when they were invited to the WH during Obama for a WH dinner. It was reported that during the background check it was discovered they CZJ was actually 10 years older than she claimed. No idea if it is true but it certainly looks great be.

      & I think she looks like “yikes”

      • ex-Mel says:

        The UK births and deaths OFFICIAL records – that nobody can tamper with – are publicly available on the internet. Unless she has an exact double, with parents of the same name, she was born on September 25, 1969, according to those records.
        (Not to mention that on photos and footage where she was supposed to be, say, 14 years old she actually looks 14 years old.)

    • Kendra says:

      She looks 50. And who has had plague surgery. People are used to see Hollywood stars who age well and have great surgery or are just really lucky with some nicer treatments that anyone who doesn’t look perfect seem like she is aged in comparison, it’s a sample size and comparison issue. And I say she, look some 50 year old male celebrities and see if they look older than her. The conspiracy theories of her age are getting old too. I hope she lives to 110 so that should kill the conspiracy theories. Unlikely however so there might be those even after her death.

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      I thought this was Bella Hadid

    • BeanieBean says:

      She became ‘matronly’ as soon as she married Michael Douglas. Instead of ‘keeping him young’, marrying him aged her.

  2. OriginalRose says:

    I LOVE HBC but we’d be naive to think she is untweaked, I’m sure she’s had some excellent subtle work done

  3. Rbk says:

    She doesn’t look too bad, I think the filler in her cheeks and the eyeliner are giving her squinty eyes

    • Kiera says:

      The hairstyle isn’t helping. If she had done soft Veronica Lake style waves it would have softened the more, ahem, striking parts of her face.

    • Agirlandherdog says:

      It looks like she and Ashley Judd have the same plastic surgeon. They look shockingly alike in that headshot.

    • minx says:

      I think CZ’s face looks too pulled tight— yikes.

    • Actually, it’s her earlobes freaking me out a little…yikes.

      • anony7 says:

        I agree about the earlobes. Those earrings must be damn heavy, and we all know with age comes longer ears, but even so those earlobes look super-long/stretched.

      • BeanieBean says:

        Yeah, she’s going to need to get those fixed.

    • hunter says:

      The front-slit gown is a total no from me.

    • Original Jenns says:

      Same, the cat eyeliner shape looks amateurish, but it’s the cheeks that may be squishing the face/eyes a bit. I think better make up would have made her look less worked on. I think she’s still very pretty and glamorous, but not a fan of the dress at all. Very dated.

  4. Sugarbunny says:

    There was a blind story that went around when The Douglas’ were invited to a WH dinner during the Obama administration. The story goes that during the background checks it was discovered that CZJ Was 10 years older than she claimed. Not sure if any of that’s true but it certainly looks like it may be.

    As for how she looked last night, my vote is yikes.

    • Fleur says:

      that story is nonsense. There’s extensive evidence in Wales that confirms her actual age is 50, including people who went to school with her.

    • Original Jenns says:

      Are you sugar bunny or snappy fish? Because you posted the same comment about her age under both names. Just stop. The fake age thing has been debunked and the story is a lie.

    • Bohemian Angel says:

      Her age is correct, I remember when she was in a TV show here called The Darling Buds of May and remember her being around my age and im about to turn 50. Plus there are other actors who went to school with her that are around my age group.

  5. Jillybean says:

    Jlo is also 50. I’d rather look like jlo anytime. She just look amazing. Little heavy on the bronzer but that washed off lol

    • Megs283 says:

      Doesn’t Jlo spend $20k a month on her appearance? Definitely not a fair bar.

      I just wish CZJ kept her original looks. A line here and there would just accentuate her natural beauty.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      Right? If the choices are CZJ or Helena, I’ll take JLO, please!

  6. Charfromdarock says:

    I love that Helena stays true to her style no matter the circumstances. She looks great!

    Whatever CZJ has going on, it looks uncomfortable.

    • josephine says:

      Helena does look great – she looks healthy here, and that’s not always been true. Wish she would ditch the ugly shoes and try a different hairstyle but the dress is pretty. The blue is lovely.

  7. Zapp Brannigan says:

    CZJ is channeling budget Alexis Carrington Colby Dexter, step off and leave it to Joan Collins, the real MVP!

    • lingli says:

      I instantly thought “Joan Collins” when I saw the dress. And Joan (who’s 30 years older) would wear it so much better!

  8. Deanne says:

    Ooh, What has she done to her beautiful face? Mine hurts just looking at hers. I don’t get why people do this. It ages them dramatically. A big yikes from me.

  9. josephine says:

    I don’t get the cut of CZJ’s dress. Move that deep plunge up a couple inches and you would have a much more flattering line. Where it is cut now just makes her look a little thick around the waist. She’s the rare person that can wear that silver and get away with it but it’s not cut to flatter.

    • Gabby says:

      Agree completely, this could have been a flattering look on her, but missed by a mile. Those pointy shoulders need to stop immediately.
      Also, cut-down-to-here cleavage plus high center leg slit never works.

  10. Christina says:

    Catherine’s shoes are too small.

    • grumpyterrier says:

      Yes, her poor feet! It seems like celebs do this a lot on the red carpet- cram their feet into shoes too small and their toes are on the side trying to run away.

  11. Lucy2 says:

    CZJ looks all around uncomfortable. I kind of like the dress, though it’s not super flattering to her.

  12. Elena says:

    HBC is beautiful! Bonkers outfits aside, she’s always had the most delicate face. I found her beautiful in Fight Club and still do, to this day. <3 CZJ needs to lay off the fillers and the plastic surgery.

  13. Eliza_ says:

    I think Cathrine and Victoria Beckham see the same “dermatologist” because they’re faces are morphing into each other’s.

  14. Eleonor says:

    I swear 5 minutes ago I was talking to Canadian colleague and he was telling me he really likes European films and TV series because “people look normal” .
    I see CZJ and good Lord why.

    • JanetDR says:

      I’m always thinking that (looking normal) when I watch detective procedurals where the woman are actually older sometimes, or not wearing V-neck shirts with tons of cleavage to work and all the people just look real.

  15. Chaine says:

    I’d rather be HBC any day. She looks a bit disheveled, but she is having fun, face isn’t like a melting waxwork and she has stayed young at heart.

  16. Emms says:

    CZJ’s earlobes… those earrings are too heavy!

  17. Seraphina says:

    Catherine looks HARSH. Not sure what is going on and Helena, Helena, Helena. Oh my dear, I get she is eclectic and I adore her but this is a train wreck.

  18. KinChicago says:

    Can someone explain please why tweaking results in this SQUINT?

    • Joanna says:

      Too much filler under the eyes makes the eyes look smaller.

    • hunter says:

      Making the cheeks fuller can crowd out the eyes.

      Also people get filler beneath the eyes to fill hollows, the entire thing contributes to less space for the eyeballs.

  19. LeonsMomma says:

    CZJ has been tweaking her appearance for a while. Take a look at the movie “Sitting Heirs,” (early 90’s) from the and you won’t recognize her.

  20. Jessica says:

    CZJ dress is awful. It makes her look like a Vegas-y, over-the-top with the glitter, Playboy Bunny. All that’s missing is Hugh Hefner.

  21. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    HBC is my soul sister.

  22. Di says:

    I actually did a double-take when I saw the pic of CZJ and Michael Douglas together-it REALLY just looked like a new reveal of their latest wax figures!

  23. Wilma says:

    I think CZJ always looked more mature than her actual age. It’s hard to tell how old she would look without the fillers. She does look worked on, hopefully it will settle a bit.

  24. Nikki* says:

    It doesn’t help that in all the photos, her expression is sphinx-like; she has no smile or animation going on whatsoever. Between the lack of expression and the pale lips, she just seems deadened. Much too young at 50 to come across like this.

  25. Sarah says:

    Catherine is starting to look as old as Michael.

  26. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I don’t actually think she’s had her eyes done, unfortunately as someone with deep set eyes myself I know that they do just look more deep set/squintier with age. If she had had them done her eyes would look wide awake all of a sudden a la Renee Z. Her hooded lids are very much still there. Unfortunately the (apparent) cheek fillers are accentuating this in her case. I also think the eye makeup is not helping. To be honest I still think she looks better than Kidman and several others who have done way more work on their faces imo. We just don’t see CZJ as often so any small changes are more noticeable. She is looking a bit botoxed but again, I have seen so much worse!

  27. Jaded says:

    Good lord, she’s pulled tighter than bull’s butt in fly season!

    • Guest with Cat says:

      @Jaded Oh my goodness you have a way with words!

      I’m the same age as HBC. I don’t have much in the way of wrinkles but that’s because I use fillers. They’re called donuts. I ate too many of them. A little bit of padding actually looks good, at least on my face. My figure…not so much.

      At this age it does seem to be a choice between fat and wrinkles. Unless you’re willing to spend a bit of money on your looks. I’m not. I’ve got other things I’m doing with my money I find more rewarding. Perhaps if I had always been a beauty and was reluctant to let go of that I’d feel different. But once a happy potato, always a happy potato.

      I can’t tell if what Catherine Zeta has done looks good or bad. The strangeness of it all really throws me for a loop. If she’s happy and healthy, good for her.

      • Jaded says:

        “I use fillers. They’re called donuts.” OMG I laughed out loud!! I totally agree that a few more pounds is actually flattering. I’m about 12 lbs over my 30’s weight but I do work out a lot and I’m in pretty good shape for 67. I have much better things to do with my money than shove it in my face – like travelling, eating well, spoiling Mr. Jaded and the cat. You sound like a very well grounded person and I’m glad you’re a happy potato!

      • Anne with cat says:

        @Guest with cat, it was a pleasure to read your comment. You seem like a really lovely person to have around. Greeting from another cat lady

  28. Bahare says:

    Wow. My first glance at the photos I asked why Michael Douglas is with Jwow from Jersey shore .I kid you not.

  29. Louisa says:

    Her feet! How does she walk with her toes escaping like that?

  30. K says:

    I have been a fan for a long time. I think her tanning and smoking habits along with mental health issues really aged her. I think her age is correct, rumors are horrible. People just wish she were older.

    Whatever she has done, I think she looks amazing, more like her old self. She looked older than her age the last few years.

  31. Tila says:

    I initially thought she was that chick that’s in a relationship with Jeff bezos.

    • Guest with Cat says:

      @TILA, Catherine Zeta Jones is not nearly that bad. Lauren Sanchez isnt just pulled too tight. There are other very disturbing things going on with her face now. LS is venturing into Jocelyn Wildenstein territory.

  32. MsGnomer says:

    Does HBC look high on something? She is a such a hot mess. I watch her performances, but whoa. Is she still with Burton?
    CZJ & MD never caught my interest very much. Very “of the 1980s”, I think. This outfit looks like something from Dynasty. So, I’ll vote that she dressed to please her husband at this event.

  33. McMom says:

    When people say how old someone looks, I wonder if they actually know anyone that age. CZJ looks about 50 to me – 50 with a lot of years smoking and in the sun. If I saw her at a PTO meeting, I’d think she looks like other women her age.

    HBC has beautiful skin that she’s obviously protected from the sun.

  34. jamillah says:

    CZJ clearly had some work done but i don’t hate it. i think she still looks beautiful DESPITE it

  35. naomipaige says:

    I’ll just say I’m not a fan of CZJ’s dress.
