Did Julia Roberts Inspire Catherine Zeta-Jones's Bold Makeover?

Catherine Zeta-Jones Channels Julia Roberts in Lay the Favorite
Frank Masi; Everett

A far cry from her elegant red carpet persona, Catherine Zeta-Jones is turning heads with her on-screen look in the casino caper, Lay the Favorite.

In the flick, Zeta-Jones plays Tulip, a gambler’s wife with a penchant for too-tight gym clothes. With her face-framing cleavage and conspicuous accessories, her styling is more than a little reminiscent of Julia Roberts‘s Oscar-winning turn as a scantily clad legal clerk in 2000’s Erin Brockovich. The provocative look also marks an upswing for the actress, who recently supported hubby Michael Douglas through a battle with cancer — and tackled personal issues of her own.

We love when gorgeous stars like CZJ give us a little TMI, but want to know what you think. Tell us: Who works her risqué attire best?

At first I thought the article title was a typo. It’s so hard to believe that is Catherine Zeta-Jones!

That pictures makes CZJ look like she has had a lot of work done.

That’s so not a fair question! Who looks better Catherine Zeta Jones now or Julia Roberts nearly twelve years ago? Although, Catherine is rocking those too tight gym clothes I must say.

Catherine looks so old!! Julia well she’s always been a horseface homewrecker.

Those are risque?!?! I consider myself to be old and staid, but I don’t consider those risque. People walk down the street in far less every day.

This is a comparison becauuuuse? they are both women? both have boobs? both played strong women with boobs in movies?
Is this your first article Justine? coz it’s a stretch of the (lack of) imagination

Renee on January 11th, 2012 So agree!

What did she do to herself?She looks like the catwoman in Batman and that’s not a compliment.
She used to be gorgeous-can’t say the same now.

Did she have a face lift or something because she is so not CZJ. Her eyes are the give-away. They look like they were pulled back and she resembles a cat or something. Too bad for Michael Douglas..does he know who he is going to bed with because this picture certaintly doesn’t look like his wife and I have no clue who she really looks like now. Sad..Plain Sad
