Just 7 days ago, Catherine Zeta Jones was so depressed and overwhelmed that she checked into a mental health facility to be treated for a bipolar disorder. It was so bad she even turned down a People magazine cover story when they asked to interview her about it. Oh wait never mind.
(Jones) realized she needed help in the face of mounting depression.
“The simple things would just seem overwhelming, like going out to dinner,” says the close friend. “There was just a little piece of her chipped away. It was hard to watch because I knew how hard she was trying.”
Now, just one week later, not only is she back at work in Louisiana filming a movie called Playing the Field, but she’s agreed to join Tom Crusie, Alec Baldwin, and Russell Brand in Rock of Ages.
To recap, she was depressed but now she has an almost manic energy and focus. In other words she wasn’t really paying attention when they explained what bipolar means.
