Catherine Zeta-Jones snapped in a Dec. 7 interview as she admitted she never wanted her battle with Bipolar to go public. See what else she said about being the unofficial ‘poster child’ for the disorder!
Catherine Zeta-Jones was promoting her upcoming film Playing For Keeps on Good Morning America on Dec. 7 when the interview went sour. Although she brought it up first, she didn’t seemed thrilled to answer the question of how she is feeling now after it was revealed she was battling Bipolar disorder in April 2011.
Interviewer Elizabeth Vargas asked Catherine about her busy year, as she filmed multiple moves including Playing for Keeps and Rock of Ages.
“After Michael [Douglas] had his cancer, I had my issues. I had to stop for a moment. And then, I’ve just been doing smaller roles in great, fun movies with great directors and that’s been fun for me. It sounds like a whole bunch but it wasn’t that much, really.”
When Elizabeth asks how she is feeling now, Catherine responded,
“You know what? I’m sick of talking about it because I never wanted to be the poster child for this. I never wanted this to come out publicly. It came out,” she said.
“I dealt with it the best way I could. It was just saying, hey, I’m Bipolar. Everyone has things going on and we deal with them the best we can. We can’t jump from the rooftop shouting, ‘I have this, look at me, victim’ — we all have issues in life. I’m really happy that I have great friends, great support and that’s all you can do.”
We still think she’s so brave for facing her fears!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Was Catherine rude or should she be able to keep her struggles private?
