London: Dull, lifeless skin with open pores and blemishes, puffy eyes -- Catherine Zeta Zones grabbed attention for all the wrong reasons when she attended Film Society`s Chaplin Award Gala in New York.

The actress, who also appears to have lost a lot of weight, says that the way she looks is just the result of fitting in seven shows a week on Broadway with all the usual demands of family life, reports dailymail.co.uk.

At the award function on Monday, she was also wearing a lot of foundation which was clinging on to her skin and showing up every bit of roughness and the odd acne-scar on her cheeks.

Whatever she is or isn`t doing to herself, one thing looks clear: she`s not only working too hard, but trying too hard.
