"We go way back," Zeta-Jones has said. "My mother took me to the stage door before a matinee. I brought her daffodils -- the Welsh national flower. She was wearing big black sunglasses and I asked her to take them off -- I wanted to see those famous eyes and she replied, 'Oh, it's too early for that, honey!'"
Catherine Zeta-Jones More Like Liz Taylor?
While Jolie might exude more of the sultry sexuality that Taylor had in her heyday, Zeta-Jones' figure more closely matches Taylor's -- that is, until recently. Known for her curves when she burst on the scene in "Zorro," Zeta-Jones has appeared bonier lately. On the other hand, Hollywood gossip has had Jolie looking dangerously thin at times.
Like Taylor, Zeta-Jones is a member of Hollywood royalty -- albeit through marriage to husband Michael Douglas. Both also share British roots. Taylor was born in England and spent her early childhood there. Zeta-Jones is Welsh.
Zeta-Jones also seems to shares more of Taylor's extravagant tastes. Zeta-Jones once quipped, "A million pounds is not a lot of money for us." Like Taylor, who has collected the finest gems, Zeta-Jones has said she collects houses the way others collect art.
"Jones is more similar to Taylor in that sophisticated, classic way," Drew said.
In the end, Drew declared Zeta-Jones the winner. "Angelina looks too much like Angelina. It would be hard for her to become a character like that. She would have to gain weight," Drew said.
"Catherine would be more likely, in terms of being able to portray another character and not herself," he said. "She also looks more like her. She's more Liz Taylor-esque."
