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.
Catherine Zeta-Jones says the way her deep sadness lingered after doctors told Michael Douglas his throat cancer was gone made her realize she had to get treatment. And now she wants the world to know “there is no shame in seeking help” for bipolar disorder.
Catherine Zeta-Jones shocked her fans when it was revealed she spent five days in a Connecticut mental health facility, after admitting herself on April 6 to manage her Bipolar II Disorder. But perhaps most shocking was that her stay in treatment was so short. HollywoodLife.com spoke exclusively with a mental health specialist to understand why her stay was so brief, and what treatment likely focused on.
Her ailing husband Michael Douglas’ health problems proved to be too much for Catherine Zeta-Jones to handle. The 41-year-old actress checked into a mental-health facility this month to treat her bipolar disorder.
During his interview with NBC‘s the Today show, to announce his victory over deadly throat cancer, Michael Douglas revealed he took his children with wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones — son Dylan, 10, and daughter Carys, 7 — with him to cancer treatment appointments so they could understand what he was going through.
After aggressive rounds of chemotherapy and radiation Michael Douglas has managed to win his battle with throat cancer — but there are still lingering effects. Michael sat down with Matt Lauer on Today Jan. 11 and said, “Salivary ducts have been closed down as a result of the radiation, probably for at least a year or two,” and “I’ve put about 12 (pounds) back. But, I mean, I got another 20, 25 to go.”
Michael Douglas is in the fight of his life as he battles aggressive throat cancer. His wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones is currently in China doing charity work, but don’t worry, the gaunt-looking 66-year-old is in great hands — his daughter, Carys, is taking good care of him!
