18 years earlier, the Welsh actress starred as Elena Montero in the 1998 American swashbuckler film The Mask of Zorro. She was suggested for the role by producer Steven Spielberg, who had initially developed the film for TriStar Pictures.

Spielberg recommended Zeta-Jones to director Martin Campbell after seeing her in the 1996 American two-part television miniseries Titanic, in which she played passenger Isabella Paradine.

Before the casting of Zeta-Jones, Polish-Swedish actress Izabella Scorupco was considered for the role.

She wore a timeless but daring Elie Saab draped teal dress, which clung to her curves in all the right places.

The gown featured a plunging neckline that showed off her ample décolletage, a lace panel at the back, and a thigh-high slit that put her legs on full display.

It was a rainy Tuesday night, and Catherine almost flashed more than she bargained for as the wind blew up the high slit on the side of her dress.

Luckily, she was able to brush her dress down as quickly and firmly as possible, narrowly avoiding a wardrobe malfunction.
