Catherine Zeta-Jones Reclaims Narrative From Paparazzi by Posting Her Own Bikini Photos

When nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence were revealed after a massive celebrity email hack, she broke the mold cast by Vanessa Williams and others and refused to apologize. That sparked a nation-wide conversation on how consent works in an increasingly digital and image-based world. Now, Catherine Zeta-Jones has added to the debate in her own way by posting photos in a bikini to reclaim her ownership of the right to do it.

The actress shared this to Instagram yesterday:

Pissed the paparazzi photographed my ass, thus sharing the photographs my husband took of my ass. Always a better option for viewing ?.

The message sent by her posting the photos taken by Michael Douglas is clear: Zeta-Jones is in charge of her body, who sees her body, and when they see it.

She’s been trending all day on Facebook, so maybe the message was well-received!
