Keeping Up With The Joneses

‘WATCH out, Catherine Zeta Jones – Jennifer Ellison is after your job.

”I’m ready for my close up, Mr Douglas”

So it says on the front of this morning’s Star, although it does not specify which of Catherine’s many roles Jen aims to usurp.

Does she intend to become wife/companion to one of Hollywood’s oldest residents, to bath them, to feed them and to nurse them in their dotage?

Or perhaps she sees a future as a celebrity litigant, suing anyone who dares to suggest that she’s eaten a full meal in the past decade?

Jen is not specific.

“I’d love to follow in the footsteps of Catherine Zeta Jones and go to Hollywood,” she tells the paper, “but I love my family and that still means a lot to me.”

And she’s still got a lot to learn if she is to take on Catherine’s mantle.

For instance, the Mirror says the 21-year-old Scouser was only too happy to pose with co-star Emmy Rossum at last night’s premiere of the film version of Phantom Of The Opera.

A true Hollywood diva like Catherine would have done as Minnie Driver did and thrown “a real-life strop” when asked to stand next to the 18-year-old unknown.

“Perhaps she was fearful of being upstaged by such a young beauty,” a film fan opined.

Or perhaps she was behaving as any self-respecting Hollywood diva would?’
