Catherine Zeta-Jones is ''sick'' of being ''humble''.

The 48-year-old actress has vowed to stop apologising for her wealth, good looks, career success and happy marriage to Michael Douglas - the father of her children Dylan, 17, and 15-year-old Carys - because she loves the fact she has a great life.

She said: ''One thing I'm not is humble any more. I'm sick of being humble. I really am. 'So sorry I'm rich, so sorry I'm married to a movie star, so sorry I'm not so bad looking'.

No sorrys. Enough. All that is important to me now is my work.

''That's what I love and the rest of my life is a joy because I've got two beautiful kids and a healthy, happy husband. It's all good, and I'm not going to be humble for that either.''

The 'Mask of Zorro' actress is confident her children are going to follow in the footsteps of their famous parents.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''I have two kids who want to be actors and I am so proud. It's not about fame for them. They've been brought up around famous people. They know what that is like.

''They want the craft because that's what they love. And it gives me such pride that they get it. They understand that this is not a quick fix. They're so good. I can't wait for you all to see which way they're going to go because they're going to go somewhere, I'm telling you.''

While Catherine is proud of her life and who she is now, she's been crippled with doubts in the past.

She said: ''What shaped me as an actor, more than anything, is getting older. I genuinely lost my mojo. I didn't like it very much any more. I was on a successful path, there wasn't any crisis or anything. And I remembered how I started off so young and became successful, because I was fearless.

''There was no questioning, wondering what people would think.

''Somewhere along the middle I got frightened again and I started to ­question myself as an actor, my choices.''As I matured as a woman, as a mother, as a wife, I'm not scared anymore.''
