    Sad for the Kids…..Always is

    Some people just can’t stay married, no matter how good they look

    Age is probably a factor here as well

  • Nightwish

    She is a raging bipolar with suicidal tendencies and he lasted longer than most humans are capable. Catherine is too beautiful and accomplished to succumb to this. Heartrending. Can something be done to help her?

  • DillPickle

    @Nightwish: How do you know this? Maybe the marriage took a couple punches due to some health issues and maybe those punches left some holes? Not too many Hollywood marriages survive when there are 2 actors in the business. Long hours, varying filming locations, distant relationships, and the whole lifestyle that comes with it, can do considerable damage. I wonder if he still calls her ‘Catherine the Great’?

  • Emma

    She is bipolar because of the age difference…she wanted fame and fortune and the only thing she got was wrinkles and depression…sad cause she was incredibly beautiful and talented…could have had a totally different life had she married another man closer to her age…

  • really?

    Too bad for the kids. Hope this does not mess up the kids. It’s not easy to grow up now days without adding the pressure of your parents’ problems, especially in HW. I think one of Michael’s son has a lot of issues. Michael & his first wife’s failed marriage didn’t help the son. He now has substance problems. You’d think if you have wealth/fame you can work things out better but not so. They’re just like the rest of us. As matter of fact, I think the pressure to stay content in a relationship is higher than the general public due to their self/public image. But if they are half way decent, they will try to keep their personal business private for the sake of their children. And hopefully their children will come out okay.

    @Emma: Emma what an ignorant statement. Bipolar is a mental health condition and the age difference had nothing to do with it. And it seems to me she was very happy for most of the marriage.

  • Nightwish

    @DillPickle: A month back or so she had checked into a specialized clinic under emergency circumstances. If you are bipolar and there is an emergency, its almost always suicidal concerns. Being bipolar is an incredible stressor for people around them. Its not any kind of fun, and im sure home life got way out of control and difficult for both of them, not to mention the kids.

  • Jennifer

    Sad. She is younger.., maybe a factor. Feel bad for the kids. Divorce isn’t good for them, but having unhappy parents is also unhealthy. Hopefully things work out for them. Marriage is work.

  • Jessie

    How do you work on a marriage when you’re apart?


    I hope they can work it out. They’ve been through SO much together!


    OOOh !

    @Jessie: Go back to the basics. Stop worrying about the domestic life and activities, take time off from those. Start to date again without the stress of living together and remind yourself of what made you to fall in love with each other in the first place :) Step back and reevaluate your relationship.

  • Louise

    The pathetic Hollywood people need to wake up and marry age appropriate. Not too many large age relationships last. Sixty is sixty, forty is forty…………big difference. Pay attention, Bradley Cooper.

  • Randall

    I’m glad Michael Douglas came to his senses. She is a stuck up snob who is unrelatable and thinks her career should have been better than what is was. No offense, but after “Chicago” what was she in? You know what they say about Oscar curse! She smoked ciggs all throughout her pregnancies. She needs to get help for her “bi-polar” disorder and leave Michael Douglas alone. She was angry with him for admitting he had HPV related cancer in his throat. I think he was brave to do so! She probably was making him worse with all of her stress. Now she’s old and winked (for Hollywood standards of a woman) and angry. Oh well…I hope he divorces her and stop being too nice. Find a woman who is more down to earth with out a mental problem!

  • Hanna

    Has everyone forgotten that Michael practically blamed his wife for getting cancer? Read up, folks, his cancer was due to going down on his wife, he said publicly. If I was that wife, I wouldn’t stay one minute with this person anymore. And that would benefit the kids!
