Demi Lovato has reached out to Catherine Zeta Jones via Twitter, after the star announced she was entering a rehab facility for her Bipolar II disorder.
Lovato, who also entered a rehab facility this year for an eating disorder, tweeted “I don’t know Catherine Zeta-Jones personally but what she has decided to do it SO brave.. And SO difficult but worth it… I’m proud of her.”
Jones’ publicist announced earlier this week that “after dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her Bipolar II disorder. She’s feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on her two upcoming films.”
It’s a fresh change to see younger starlets reach out to older stars – something you don’t see very often. I commend Jones for being so public with her disorder, it’s definitely nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. I just feel bad for her, from her husband Michael Douglas going through cancer to now dealing with this, she hasn’t had a great year. Jones is a fabulous actress and a respected member of the film scene though, so I’m sure she’ll bounce back in no time.
