Catherine Zeta-Jones back to work after treatment

Thursday April 21, 2011

Catherine Zeta-Jones seems to have made a speedy recovery.

The actress, who recently revealed that she had been diagnosed and treated for bipolar disorder, is back to work.

And the 41-year-old was all smiles on Wednesday on the set of her new film, Playing the Field, with co-stars Jessica Biel and Gerard Butler.

Meanwhile, the star has opened up about her mental illness and her hopes for inspiring more people who are suffering to speak up.

"This is a disorder that affects millions of people and I am one of them," she told People magazine.

"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."

Catherine's illness is said to have been triggered by husband Michael Douglas' struggle with cancer and on April 4 she checked herself into a mental-health facility.
