Catherine Zeta-Jones: I don't want to be bipolar poster child

Dec 7 2012, 11:28am CST | by

Catherine Zeta-Jones doesn't want to be the "poster child" for bipolar sufferers.

The 43-year-old actress went to rehab for five days in 2011 to deal with bipolar II disorder, just a short time after her husband Michael Douglas battled throat cancer.

Although Catherine released a statement revealing she suffers from depression, she is "sick of talking" about her condition and wishes people would just let her get on with her life.

When asked how she is now feeling by interviewer Elizabeth Vargas on 'Good Morning America' on Friday (07.12.12), the Hollywood beauty snapped: "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. And so I dealt with it the best way I could and that was just saying, 'Look, hey, I'm bipolar.' "

She added: "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."

Catherine made her first big screen appearance for three years in musical movie 'Rock of Ages' alongside Tom Cruise and can now be seen with Gerard Butler in 'Playing for Keeps'.

The actress insists it is good to be back at work after taking a break to support Michael, 68, through his illness and care for their children, son Dylan, 12, and daughter Carys, nine.

She said: "You know, after Michael had his cancer and then 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 fun for me."

In January 2011, Michael stated his tumor had gone but he will have to undergo monthly screenings for the next two to three years to check that the cancer hasn't returned.

Bad Week: Gossip Cop Busts Out-Of-Control Tabloid Cover Lies

Oct 30 2014 9:29am CDT | Source: Gossip Cop

(In Touch) It was a banner week for the tabloids, and not in a good way. OK!, Life & Style, In Touch, Star, and the National Enquirer all published cover stories that were either grossly misleading, wrong, or flat-out made up. And Gossip Cop corrected every single one within hours of the issues hitting newsstands. Let’s be blunt: It’s ridiculous that these magazines happily take the public’s money while spreading totally fabricated “news” whil ...

Us Weekly: Renee Zellweger changed her face because ‘the parts started drying up’

Oct 30 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Renee Zellweger stepped out last week at the Elle Women in Hollywood event and somehow became one of the most talked-about topics of the month. As CB and I have both noted, Renee’s face work is NOT new. She’s been walking around with a radically different face for more than a year now. But for some reason, last week’s photos were the first time most people noticed. The “Renee had major plastic surge ...
