Michael Douglas Opens Up About Wife's Bipolar Disorder


Michael Douglas sits down with Oprah Winfrey to discuss the status of his cancer treatment and speaks for the first time about his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones' battle with bipolar II disorder.  

Winfrey asks the actor whether he thinks his wife's health issues might have been exacerbated by his cancer battle and other stresses. "My oldest son is in federal prison, my ex-wife is suing me, and I got cancer. It's kind of hard for the wife to say, 'I'm depressed,'" says Douglas in the interview, set to air Tuesday on "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

Douglas also gives an update on his health, explaining that he still has to get monthly checkups to make sure there is no recurrence of his throat cancer, but so far the cancer has not returned.
