Catherine Zeta-Jones Covers 'InStyle' December 2012

Catherine Zeta-Jones Covers 'InStyle' December 2012

Catherine Zeta-Jones opens up in a candid interview for InStyle‘s December 2012 issue, on newsstands November 16.

Here is what the 43-year-old Playing For Keeps actress had to share with the mag:

On coming out as bipolar: “It’s not easy. I’m not the kind of person who likes to shout out my personal issues from the rooftops, 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, and that those who don’t have it under control will seek help with all that is available to treat it.”

On how exercising helps her mentality: “I don’t have a trainer. Crazy, right? But I don’t need anyone to motivate me. I love exercise, even things like the elliptical and stretching. It really helps my mood too, which, with the bipolar thing, is important.” What she does: “I’m obsessed with hula-hooping. I do it for 20 minutes a day. I don’t use the old-fashioned hollow plastic kind we had when we were kids, but I discovered a new one at Danskin that’s smaller and weighted.”

On her closet at home: “I’m building a closet in my house now, and it’s like a dream. Racks on each side, a whole boudoir. I sit in there and watch CNN. Michael says one day I’m going to go in and never come out!”

FYI: Catherine is wearing a Nina Ricci dress.

    Really airbrushed

  • Shaboogie

    She is so awesome and gorgeous! Can’t wait to see the pictures and story. Love her!

  • Carolyn

    Very pretty woman

  • blip

    She is not 43. Everyone knows she lies about her age. She’s in her fifties. Why do you think she married such an old man? She’s no spring chicken herself.

  • kelsey

    this looks really airbrushed.
    they made her skin look like she is 32 or something.
    and i dunno if she is that thin in real life, but she is really thin here.
    i thought IRL she is a little thicker.

  • Helen

    Her dress is beautiful

  • Courtney

    You can fool a lot of people, but you can’t fool a security check. When she visited the White House 4 years ago, she had to give her birthdate. There was a 10 year discrepancy between what she said (37 at the time) and her real age (47). And it took about two hours before she could be let in because she lied.

  • XxXxX

    The dress is gorgeous. She’s such a beautiful woman, why do you hate on her for her age? Age is nothing but a number!! I’m 21 but I feel so mature in my mind….. Really. It’s not that important. If it makes her feel better to say that she’s younger, then leave her be. In what sense is it gonna affect your lives, people?!

  • liar liar

    wow a 10 year age difference? if that’s true then she really didn’t think things through when she just started coz now instead of looking young for a 53 year old, she kinda looks old for a 43 year old

  • Shiny

    Ballsy lady; lots of charm. I don’t think she lied about her age. You can google pics of her from when she was 13 or 14 (according to her alleged DOB) and in youth productions. She looks 13 or 14, not 23 or 24. Check it out.
    Otherwise she’s a genetic freak who hit puberty in her mid-twenties.

  • DB

    It’s a difficult thing she has to face. It’s not a lifestyle choice, it’s not something that she has as a result of anything she has done in the past, it’s a mental imbalance based on the chemical makeup of her brain. It must be horrible to have your body betray you like that. I wish her the best in facing this and wish her and her family strength.

  • KissThis

    She looks great! Wish I had that dress!



  • Nina Costa

    I’ve looked at the entire photo spread, and she really does look different. Part of her magic throughout the years is the actual perfection of the symmetry of her features. Her hairline is different, as it was before she became famous. She’d clearly had it lasered back then to broaden her forehead. Her forehead looks small again. Her eyebrows don’t have the same arches as before, and most different the shape of her lips. She doesn’t have the same cupids bow definition as before, her lipstick isn’t even on right. These pictures are all so airbrushed its embarrassing. Looking closely, she looks older and weathered. At first I thought maybe she replaced her veneers, hence pushing her lip out. I really can’t pin it. She just doesn’t look anywhere like before.
