Catherine Zeta-Jones' Bipolar II Struggle
Yahoo Health ^ | 14 April 2011 | Lisa Collier Cool

After supporting husband Michael Douglas through his battle with throat cancer, Catherine Zeta-Jones needed medical care for herself. After “the stress of the past year,” her representative said in a statement, the movie star “made the decision to check into a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her bipolar II disorder,” a condition similar to bipolar I disorder, characterized by mood swings from high to low.

Zeta-Jones has been hit with a series of devastating events: In 2010, her stepson, Cameron Douglas, was sentenced to five years in prison on drug charges, and four months later, her husband was diagnosed with cancer. Compounding the stress, Michael Douglas was also slapped with a lawsuit by former wife, Diandra, seeking half of the profits from his hit movie, “Wall Street: The Money Never Sleeps.”

I know, I know.....TTIUWP. The rest of you can have the honor.

I guess Sean Connery wasn't kidding in Entrapment when he told CZJ, "You're playing both sides...."

Any such quote about CZJ should have been: “You’re playing with both sides .. “?

Do any exist? I find the pseudo-film noir pose in the bar kind of sad.

I dunno.....that second picture is without makeup? Looks like her chute malfunctioned while skydiving over the quarry where Bare Minerals products are mined.

She’s had plastic surgery and she still looks plain.

At least she still looks normal, though.

It’s not just the makeup; in the first picture I’d say she’s obviously been AIRBRUSHED to perfection.

The difference isn’t makeup, it’s years, and some very GOOD cosmetic surgery.

A good intake of fish oils will manage that problem nicely. Seen it happen in a friend. Works great on BP and no drugs.

Catherine also had a psychotic “fan” who repeatedly threatened to kill her. Horrible story - the woman is in jail now, but not for very long. Very graphic threats and letters. Most women, although not psychotic, really hate women as attractive as Zeta-Jones, imho.
