Zeta-Jones turns down Vivien Leigh role to spend time with ill hubby.
The Oscar-winning actress had been approached about playing the vivacious second wife of Laurence Olivier in a film about Olivier making 'The Prince And The Showgirl' with Marilyn Monroe at Pinewood studios in 1956.
The movie 'My Week With Marilyn' is being told from the perspective of Colin Clark, who worked as a gofer on the film, reports the Daily Mail.
Catherine was approached by executives at Weinstein Co, the studio producing the picture with David Parfitt, to take the Vivien Leigh part.
While it's not the weightiest of roles, it does have four or five crucial scenes, plus A[degrees]Vivien's the second-most glamorous character in the movie after Marilyn.
Marilyn is being played by Michelle Williams, Clark by Eddie Redmayne, Olivier by Kenneth Branagh, and Sybil Thorndike by Judi Dench. (ANI)
