Catherine Zeta-Jones Talks about Her Bipolar Disorder

A-list stars typically don’t get very candid in interviews, particularly when they are talking about bipolar disorder. However Catherine stated that bipolar is something that she has been dealing with for many years. Her soon to be ex-husband Michael’s diagnosis of cancer was a classic trigger which caused her lack of sleep, worry, and stress which brought on her voluntary hospitalization.

Catherine says that the reason she is so open about her illness is that she hopes to bring greater awareness to bipolar and the people who suffer with it every day. Hopefully this information will help end the stigma around mental illness.

Catherine’s movies include:

  • Legend of Zorro
  • Traffic
  • Chicago
  • The Terminal
  • Oceans 12
  • No Reservations
  • Side Effects
  • Red 2
  • Playing for Keeps
  • Rock of Ages
  • Broken City
  • High Fidelity
  • Lay the Favorite

and many more
