Catherine Zeta-Jones is Bipolar! Of Course.

In a shocking twist to the Michael Douglas beating cancer story, Catherine Zeta-Jones reportedly checked herself into a mental institution to deal with a bipolar disorder that no one knew she had until now. ABC News reports:

“After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her Bipolar II Disorder,” her publicist said in a statement. “She’s feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week this week on her two upcoming films.”

Of course, the obvious and tasteless joke is to insinuate that’s why she’s with a man a quarter of a century older than her, so I’m just going to stop right there because I don’t know how else you interpret this. They might as well have put it in the press release.
