Catherine Zeta-Jones

In the October issue of Cigar Aficionado, we speak with Oscar-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones about growing up in a small Welsh town, transitioning from theater to television to Hollywood, being married to Michael Douglas, and why she isn't fazed about turning 40. Also, features on the next generation of cigar stars, six titans who are living icons of the sports world, an in-depth look at what lies ahead for Detroit's Big Three, the PGA's new hi-tech Shot Tracker system, the Top 10 watches of 2009 and an interview with fashion czar Roberto Cavalli.
