Catherine Zeta-Jones' young son DYLAN is "very dramatic" and is already preparing his OSCAR speech.

The Welsh actress, 34, laughs at how "worked up" her four-year-old child gets and often jokes with him that his performance is worthy of an ACADEMY AWARD.

Zeta-Jones says of her eldest child with Michael Douglas, "He's dramatic, but he's not into terrible tantrums. Dylan is very funny.

"I still watch him get worked up and then say: 'And the Oscar goes to...'

"He says, 'The Oscar goes to... Dylan Douglas.' He loves it."

If Dylan did win an Oscar, it would join his mother's Best Supporting Actress accolade for Chicago, his father's two gongs for Wall Street and ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEXT and grandfather KIRK's honorary golden statuette.
