Oscar-winning for Chicago’s second role (2002), Zeta-Jones proudly wins the Welsh city, officials have said.
Council President Rob Stewart said that this distinction is “well-deserved” by an actress for the role of ambassador of the city.
“We have always been very proud of Catherine’s achievements over the years,” the BBC quotes.
The award will be awarded in July when the star will return to their hometown to host a charity gala.
Catherine Zeta-Jones began her career in theater in London. His first important role in the film was his TV adaptation “The Darling Buds of May”. He also starred in “The Mask of Zorro”, “High Fidelity”, America’s Sweethearts, “Chicago”, “The Terminal”, “Ocean’s 12” and “Feud”.
She also won a Tony Award for her first Broadway role in “A Little Night Music,” by Stephen Sondheim. In 2010, it was decorated by Buckingham Palace.
“For the role of Swansea Ambassador and the service of film and philanthropy, it is appropriate to give Catherine the highest distinction we can award in the 50th year since Swansea became a city, Stewart said.
Local councilors will approve this at the meeting they will have next week.
