She’s hot. She’s rich. She’s married to a successful, gorgeous hot rich Jewish man. She’s talented. She’s Old Hollywood. And Catherine Zeta-Jones just about done apologizing for it.

In an open conversation with the Daily Mirror, Zeta-Jones let go of some baggage she’d been carrying around for a while.

“One thing I’m not is humble anymore. 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.’”

Honestly? Good. More women need to have Catherine Zeta Jone’s devil-may-care attitude about accepting how awesome they are.

“No sorry’s,” she added. “Enough. All that is important to me now is my work.” Then you work, girl! A trip to Zeta Jones’ IMDb page reveals that she’s going to be in a show called “Cocaine Godmother” and also on “Feud.”

“It’s all good, and I’m not going to be humble for that either,” she said, probably tossing her lustrous locks, out of a mouth with perfectly applied lipstick on it.

RIP, humility. Knowing your worth is the new wave.
