Catherine Zeta-Jones a gorgeous and foxy Academy Award winning actress is a confirmed bingo lover. Bingo has allured a much younger livelier crowd and even celebrities enjoy a good game of bingo. Bingo has become popular in the trend setting gay community complete with outlandish games and callers.
Believe it or not many stars play bingo. Bingo has shed its stodgy reputation and many stars can be found at local bingo halls or will have private bingo parties at home. Catherine Zeta Jones is one of these stars. Long considered one of the most beautiful women on the screen this Welsh beauty is known for her bingo parties given in her home.
Since Catherine spends most of her time in the US she plays 75 ball bingo. She is well known for hosting Christmas bingo parties in her home and friends and family eagerly participate. Catherine is as stylish playing bingo as she is onscreen.
As a child, Catherine loved organizing family bingo parties. She would do everything: make the numbered bingo balls and the bingo cards, organize the prizes, and get her parents and brothers involved in the bingo games. It's a childhood memory that she still cherishes.
When Catherine was in her early teens, her father won £100,000 playing bingo. A lot has changed in the life of Catherine Zeta-Jones since her early days in Swansea. She is now an internationally recognized actress and sex symbol, the recipient of an Academy Award, the wife of the actor Michael Douglas, and the mother of two children.
But some things never change, and one of them is Catherine's love of the game of bingo. Every Christmas, she organizes a bingo party for her family and her closest friends, just as she did way back when. Friends of the family have said that Michael was skeptical at first — he thought bingo was a silly game — but that he has lately become an enthusiastic bingo player himself.
Catherine Zeta-Jones likes to put her fame to good use by helping others, and one of the ways she does it is by appearing as a celebrity bingo caller at charity bingo fund-raising events. These events are not your typical 10-pence bingo games at the local bingo hall. Entrance to the event together with one bingo card typically costs about £50, and each bingo card after that can cost £25 .
But the money is all for a good cause, such as a hospital or an amateur theater group. So to help a good cause — and to play bingo with Catherine Zeta-Jones — it is certainly worth the money.
Now, when you think of the game of bingo, think of Catherine Zeta-Jones: beautiful, talented, successful, and generous to those in need. Catherine Zeta-Jones is a fine representative of the great game of bingo.
