Catherine Zeta-Jones' catty boast that $1.5 million is peanuts to her is being put to the test. A group of schoolgirls has asked her to donate to their charity drive.

The pupils, from the Notre Dame Catholic school in Plymouth, England, wrote the sexy Welsh star seeking her help in raising money for poor Nicaraguan kids.

They made the request after Zeta-Jones told a court that a $1.5 million deal for photos of her wedding to Michael Douglas wasn't a lot of money for the red-hot Hollywood couple.

Following those comments, 120 students from the school got the idea that Zeta-Jones' "pocket change" could be put to good use.

"We are just asking for a little bit of help, not the whole [$1.5 million]," teacher Dominique Olney said.
