Michael Douglas News Archive
During a press conference for the HBO film at Cannes, Michael Douglas opened up about what the role meant to him… and how it ended up meaning so much more to him as a cancer survivor — and it had nothing to do with getting to kiss Matt Damon! LOLz!
Here's what he said:
Being bipolar is actually brutally common in the world, yet it carries with it a stigma that people just can't shake. Just because it's common, though, doesn't mean it should be taken lightly. We're glad Catherine Zeta-Jones isn't riding it out… and has taken it upon herself to be very proactive with her diagnosis!
We're happy to hear that she has returned home after another round of treatment for the mental affliction!
Yesterday, we learned that Catherine Zeta-Jones checked into a 30 day program for treatment for her Bipolar disorder, and while this might be really hard on her, she's reluctant to not be facing her struggle alone!!
The Side Effects actress has been married to her hubby, Michael Douglas for the last 12 years, and fortunately for her, he's holding her hand every step of the way.
Aww!! We hope everything is OK!!
Catherine Zeta-Jones just checked into a treatment center to begin a 30-day program designed to help with her Bipolar disorder!

Like seriously, they have been married for 12 years. Plus, they're way too cute to not be together as one!!
Ch-ch-check out the couple loving it up (above)!

That makes it sound like she's dead or something.
She's actually quite the opposite!
Catherine Zeta-Jones' family has been dealing with different health issues recently, and, now, she's opening up about them.
For instance, she discusses how her husband Michael Douglas, 67, said he had throat cancer back in 2010. Then, they experienced more complications when they revealed their son has "special needs," and more recently, Catherine herself underwent treatment for bipolar disorder.
