    Catherine Zeta-Jones is one of millions of people suffering from bipolar disorder.

    But Michael Douglas' wife has found the positive in her public diagnosis. In the December issue of InStyle, the 43-year-old Playing for Keeps star opens up about life with a mental illness.

    "I'm not the kind of person who likes to shout out my personal issues from the rooftops," she says. "But with my bipolar becoming public, I hope fellow sufferers will know it's completely controllable. I hope I can help remove any stigma attached to it."

    The mom of two is fully able to enjoy the perks of life outside the city. "We're country people, really," she says. "I garden and knit. I golf. We ride horses."

    "I love clothes, and yes, we go out, but it's not like I'm walking around all day in a negligee with fluffy mules," she says. "It's true, I don't like the whole cutoff-shorts-and-T-shirt look, but I think you can look fantastic in casual clothes."

    And that she does. Props to CZJ for facing the tough stuff and looking great doing it.
