The Chicago actress stunned fans earlier this month (Apr11) when she checked into a mental health facility in Connecticut, where she spent five days combating a serious bout of depression.
Zeta-Jones has subsequently opened up about her bipolar disorder, encouraging other sufferers to seek help and insisting, “There is no need to suffer silently.”
Now her Wall Street actor husband has opened up about his wife’s personal struggles. He says, “It takes a lot of courage to seek help and I am proud of Catherine for doing something positive about her situation. It’s onwards and upwards for us.”
Zeta-Jones put her troubles behind her on Wednesday (20Apr11) when she returned to work in Louisiana, where she is filming comedy Playing The Field alongside Gerard Butler, Uma Thurman and Jessica Biel.
