Catherine Zeta-Jones is back home again after completing her bipolar disorder tune-up, but where is her husband?
Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is back home after completing her follow-up treatment for bipolar II disorder, her husband Michael Douglas confirmed.
“She comes home tomorrow,” he told People yesterday. “She’s doing a really good job of getting balanced. I’m proud of her.”
“She’s got herself worked out with her meds and she’s raring to go!” he later told Extra.
Zeta-Jones checked into a mental health care facility in April as a preventative measure, according to her rep.
“Catherine has proactively checked into a health care facility,” her publicist told People. “Previously Catherine has said that she is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner.”
“There was no big problem,” a friend told the magazine. “This was just a good time to do it. She is in between projects. This has always been part of the plan. She would manage her health. She is vigilant about it.”
The actress talked to InStyle in December about what it’s like to be the poster girl for a mental illness, saying that despite the stigma she knows how important it is to be a voice for good.
“It’s not easy. I’m not the kind of person who likes to shout out my personal issues from the rooftops, but with my bipolar becoming public, I hope fellow sufferers will know it’s completely controllable,” Zeta-Jones said in the December 2012 issue of the mag. “I hope I can help remove any stigma attached to it, and that those who don’t have it under control will seek help with all that is available to treat it.”
But the actress won’t have the comfort of her husband to return to, unfortunately. Douglas is busy promoting his new HBO flick Behind the Candelabra, a Liberace biopic, at the Cannes Film Festival.
