Catherine Zeta-Jones, who plays a psychiatrist in the upcoming crime drama thriller ‘Side Effects,’ opened up about her own battle with bipolar disorder with ‘Extra‘ host Jerry Penacoli. The celebrity news reporter asked the actress “In terms of your own personal problems with this issue, will you talk to your children about it?”
“Sure I will, if they’re even interested in it. Personal issues, I like to remain personal, but this is a disease that affects many, many people,” Zeta-Jones said. “In America, it’s much more open. In Britain, we have that kind of stiff upper lip, you know keep calm, carry on, get over it, what are you nuts.”
Zeta-Jones also discussed her husband Michael Douglas’ role in the HBO movie ‘Behind he Candelabra.’ She praised his performance, saying “it’s fantastic, my husband is amazing.” She added “if he had to go to bed or kiss anybody, let it be Matt Damon rather than anybody else.”
