Catherine Zeta-Jones may have spoken out in the past about suffering from bipolar disorder, but that doesn't mean she wants to continue to do so.

"You know what? I'm sick of talking about it because I never wanted to be the poster child for this," the Oscar winner said when the subject came up on Friday's Good Morning America. "I never wanted this to come out publicly. It came out, and I dealt with it in the best way I could, and that was just saying, 'Hey, I'm bipolar.'"

Zeta-Jones, who revealed in April 2011 that she had checked herself into a mental facility to ease her struggle, added:

"Everyone has things going on and we deal with them the best we can. We can't jump from the rooftops shouting, 'I have this, look at me. Victim.' No, we all have issues in life. I'm really happy that I have great friends, great support and that's all I can do."

Meanwhile, Michael Douglas' other half and the mother of the couple's two kids, is certainly staying busy.

Her latest film, Playing for Keeps, opens today, and she has at least three more movies scheduled to be released next year.
