Catherine Zeta-Jones fed up of talking about bipolar disorder

Posted on Dec 09, 09:44AM | IANS

Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is sick of answering queries about her bipolar disorder and has warned reporters against quizzing her on the same.

The news of the actress' health issues emerged last year, when she checked into a medical facility in Connecticut to seek treatment for a serious bout of depression.

When asked about how she's coping with the condition during an interview on US breakfast show Good Morning America, Zeta-Jones snapped back, saying "You know what? I'm sick of talking about it because I never wanted to be the poster child for this. I never wanted this to come out publicly. It came out," dailystar.co.uk reported.

"I dealt with it in the best way I could and that was just saying that, 'Look, hey, I'm bipolar'. Everyone has things going on and we're doing the best we can. We can't jump from the rooftops shouting about, 'I have this, look at me, victim' - no. We all have issues in life and I'm really happy I have great friends, great support and that's all I can do."
