Catherine Zeta Jones Bipolar Disorder, The revelation that the seemingly unshakable actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has been diagnosed with bipolar II disorder illustrates the hallmarks of the disease: it can strike at any time in a person’s life and is often brought on by prolonged stressed.

Zeta-Jones, 41, fell victim to the disorder’s wild mood swings after her husband Michael Douglas went through a high-profile battle with stage IV throat cancer and then endured a court fight with Douglas’ first wife over proceeds from the “Wall Street” movie sequel.

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depressive illness, is a mental illness characterized by mood swings between the two psychological pulls of depression and euphoria.

“It can start at any time in a person’s life and it’s a lifelong illness,” Dr. Igor Galynker, director of the Family Center for Bipolar Disorder at Beth Israel Medical Center told ABC News OnCall.

Zeta-Jones is said to have been diagnosed with bipolar II, which is a form of the disorder which is characterized by longer low periods.
