Catherine Zeta-Jones Returns Home After Treatment for Bipolar II Disorder
Catherine Zeta-Jones is back home and ready to reunite with her family after completing treatment for Bipolar II Disorder.
The actress, 43, checked into an undisclosed health care facility in late April to undergo ongoing mental health treatment. Zeta-Jones had previously checked into Connecticut’s Silver Hill Hospital in April 2011 for similar treatment.
“Catherine’s doing wonderful,” husband Michael Douglas told Extra May 20. “She’s got herself worked out with her meds and she’s raring to go.”
Douglas, who is currently in Cannes to promote his new HBO film Behind the Candelabra, said that Zeta-Jones has chosen to share her story with the world in hopes that it helps reduce some of the stigma surrounding mental illness.
“There are so many outlets, so it’s better you get out in front of it tell your story before it becomes gossip,” he explained to Extra.
Summit Entertainment has moved ahead the release RED 2. Originally scheduled for August 2, the film will now hit theaters July 19.
RED 2 arrives from director Dean Parisot and stars Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung Hun Lee, Brian Cox and Neal McDonough.
In the film, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world-and stay alive in the process.
RED 2‘s new date puts the film up against Turbo, The Conjuring and fellow comic book adaptation R.I.P.D..
Academy Award winners Jennifer Hudson, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones will perform at the 2013 Oscar Awards on Sunday, February 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The three will sing in a special tribute to honor movie musicals, which saw a resurgence in the past decade, most recently in particular, the Oscar-nominated musical film “Les Miserables”.
“Les Mis” lead stars Hugh Jackman, who is nominated for Best Actor, and Anne Hathaway, who is up for Best Supporting Actress, are said to perform together with Hudson, Crowe and Zeta-Jones. The star-studded number will be just one among many musical performances lined up on Oscar night, to be hosted by the talented Seth MacFarlane.
“We are pleased to have been able to amass so much talent to create the celebration of musicals of the last decade that we envisioned,” Oscars producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan said about the casting coup. “We are thrilled that so many talented actors have agreed to bring our vision to life.”
The musicals tribute will revolve mostly around Hudson’s “Dreamgirls”, Zeta-Jones’ “Chicago” along with “Les Mis” for which Crowe is nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar. In other much-awaited performances, the legendary Barbra Streisand will appear in a rare onstage performance, along with Oscar nominated Adele, expected to sing the James Bond song “Skyfall”, and Norah Jones will perform “Everybody Needs a Best Friend”, the theme from “Ted”.
