Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas Are Back Together!!!

Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones Split!! **FILE PHOTOS**

This news makes me happy.  According to Michael Douglas’ mother, he and his estranged wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones are reconciling.  While the two decided to take  a break back in August, Hello! reports that they  have been vacationing and spending a great deal of time together over the past couple months.

The couple, married for 13 years, share two children together, Dylan, 13 and Carys, 10.  Outside of their marital bumps, the famous couple has faced some health challenges as well.  Zeta-Jones has been very open about her bipolar disorder, and pro-actively sought treatment for it early last year.  Douglas has battled his own health issues as well, being diagnosed with tongue cancer back in 2010.

Michael Douglas won multiple awards for his performance of Liberace in Behind the Candelabra, and will be seen in the romantic comedy, And So It Goes, this summer, also starring Diane Keaton.  Zeta-Jones, who won an Oscar for her supporting role in Chicago in 2002, was last seen in Red 2 last year.

Reconciliations are always wonderful news, especially when children are involved.  These two have also faced enough challenges, it’s nice that they can lean on each other.

Rooney Mara is almost unrecognizable on the set of her new movie!

Actress Rooney Mara films a scene for her new movie, “The Bitter Pill” in Central Park.

The Steven Soderbergh movie is about woman who turns to prescription medication as a way of handling her anxiety concerning her husband’s upcoming release from prison.

The film also stars Channing Tatum, Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Remember how Steven Soderbergh was “quitting” directing to pursue painting? Whatever happened with that? I’m happy he’s not quitting – I’m a huge fan of (most of) his movies. Just seems weird to proclaim you’re quitting …. then not quit.

Catherine Zeta Jones opens up about her struggle with bipolar disorder

When Catherine Zeta-Jones received a recent diagnosis of bipolar II disorder, a mental illness marked by prolonged periods of depression alternating with episodes of mild mania, she didn’t hesitate to step forward with the news.

“This is a disorder that affects millions of people and I am one of them,” the actress, 41, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement in this week’s cover story. “If my revelation of having bipolar II has encouraged one person to seek help, then it is worth it. There is no need to suffer silently and there is no shame in seeking help.”

In early April, the Oscar-winning wife of actor Michael Douglas, 66, and mom to son Dylan, 10, and daughter Carys, 8, checked in to Silver Hill Hospital, a mental-health facility in New Canaan, Conn.

Shaken by Douglas’s battle with throat cancer, Zeta-Jones was privately struggling, a friend says. As Douglas recovered, Zeta-Jones didn’t – and with her new movie, the romantic comedy Playing the Field, slated to start shooting in Louisiana, the actress 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.”

Do you ever get the feeling like you’ve got a little of everything? I swear – if the definition of being bipolar is “prolonged periods of depression alternating with episodes of mild mania” then I’ve definitely got it! Who doesn’t? I also think I may have ADHD as well, because I also have “a problem with inattentiveness, over-activity, impulsivity, or a combination”. Do you think our society is quick to “diagnose”!? I mean everyone I know has a bit of the crazies. Doesn’t everyone have bouts of depression? If you don’t, lie to me.

Either way – good for Catherine coming forward and admitting she’s struggling with bipolar disorder. After dealing with the cancer of her husband, it makes perfect sense. I think anyone would struggle with all that stress!

Catherine had checked herself into a mental health facility, and apparently she stayed less than a week (that’s all it takes?).
