Social Justice Warriors believe that white people should feel guilty about their perceived privilege and rich, successful people should feel sorry for being better off than others. But actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is tired of being apologetic.

In an interview with The Daily Mirror, the 48-year-old mother of two said that she’s done being modest about her riches, family, and good looks:

“One thing I’m not is humble any more. I’m sick of being humble. I really am. ‘So sorry I’m rich, so sorry I’m married to a movie star, so sorry I’m not so bad looking.’

“No sorrys. Enough. All that is important to me now is my work.

“That’s what I love and the rest of my life is a joy because I’ve got two beautiful kids and a healthy, happy husband. It’s all good, and I’m not going to be humble for that either.”

Further, Zeta-Jones says she’s earned her right to brag because she worked hard to achieve her lifestyle – and she thinks Hollywood needs to stop being so ingratiating:

“I come from a working-class family in Wales and I worked to get to where I am. And for many years all of us are victims of the fact that we’ve all got so humble.

“If you were a sports star and won an award you would go, ‘S*** yeah, that was the best work I’ve ever done, I rocked!’

“Whereas actors are like, ‘Oh I’m so sorry and thanks, can I say thanks?’”

While Zeta-Jones’s statement can certainly come off as big-headed, truthfully, she’s right. Liberals are jealous, zero-sum creatures who look down upon the acknowledgment of personal accomplishments and achievements, particularly if your skin is a certain color. But as Zeta-Jones said: she worked hard for her money, so why shouldn’t she be proud of it? There’s nothing wrong with celebrating success that you earned through hard work and dedication, no matter your color, creed, or gender. Alternatively, there’s nothing to be gained by virtue-signaling guilt and handing out participation awards, as SJWs are so wont to do. Nothing, that is, except bitterness, jealousy, and a serious sense of entitlement.
