Who knew that Catherine Zeta-Jones was suffering from any sort of mental disorder?!??
Earlier today, her publicist confirmed that Catherine has sought treatment at a mental health facility for the issue. Her publicist said, “After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her Bipolar II Disorder. She’s feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on her two upcoming films.”
Bipolar disorder is also called manic-depressive illness. The disorder is most known for the unusual shifts in mood and energy that those with it experience. Sufferers can go through what is known as a manic episode — an overly excited or joyful state — or a depressive episode — a state of unusual sadness or hopelessness.
Well, we’re just glad that she got the help that she needs. Good for her for tackling the problem head on.
