Hollywood actress Catherine Zeta-Jones was paid a staggering £3,700 a second to star in a shampoo commercial.

The Oscar-winning actress earned £1.55 million for the seven-minute TV advertisement for haircare product Lux which will only be broadcast in China and Japan, reported femalefirst.co.uk.

"We wanted Catherine as we remember her in 'Entrapment', all slinky and mysterious. That's why the ad was written as a mini spy movie. She looks pretty good in it," said an executive at Unilever, the firm behind the commercial.

In the ad, the 39-year-old steals a youth-enhancing elixir from a high-security laboratory, which turns out to be Lux shampoo. She is later seen shimmering down the red carpet with fabulous looking hair.
