Catherine Zeta-Jones and daughter Carys turn heads on the red carpet at Cannes film festival

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas shared a sweet moment with their daughter in Cannes on Tuesday evening as they took to the red carpet. The Academy Award-winning duo made an appearance at the opening ceremony of film festival and had their 20-year-old daughter Carys in tow.

Zeta-Jones, who most recently played Morticia Adams in Addams Family series Wednesday, looked striking in a long red dress which trailed off one shoulder, standing arm-in-arm with her American husband, wearing a smart tuxedo. On his other side was Carys, wearing a light pink floral lace dress - and looking the spitting image of her mum.

The trio could be seen laughing and enjoying themselves as they climbed the stairs to the opening ceremony, which doubled as a screening of French drama Jeanne du Barry. After waving to fans, they shared one lovely moment in which Carys and Catherine both turned towards Michael to give him a kiss on each cheek.

Carys is the younger child of the Hollywood couple, and turned 20 this April. She bears a striking resemblance to her 53-year-old Swansea-born mum, with many of the actresses' followers left shocked at how similar the two look.

The couple have been married since November 2000 and are as loved-up as ever - with Douglas paying a sweet tribute to Zeta-Jones on Mother's Day, which fell on Sunday, May 14 in the US.

The 78-year-old film star shared a throwback photo of the Welsh actress featuring her and the couple's two children when they were younger, captioned: "Happy happy #MothersDay darling, you deserve it! You are the best and we love you so much @catherinezetajones."

The couple's 22-year-old son Dylan looks a little less similar to his parents. He joined Zeta-Jones on the red carpet for Netflix's Wednesday back in November, wearing a burgundy blazer and eye-catching necklace.

Douglas, meanwhile, joked on the Kelly Clarkson Show that he was mistaken for Carys' grandfather at her graduation, saying: "It's a little rough when you're going out the doors and the other parents are saying, 'Oh congratulations... you must be so proud of your granddaughter."

Zeta-Jones and Douglas always manage to turn heads when they appear together - when they arrived at the red carpet for Douglas' latest film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Zeta-Jones joked to Douglas' excitable fans: "You can have him!"
