CATHERINE Zeta-Jones is planning to make a movie about mental illness.
The Welsh actress is being encouraged to raise awareness of bipolar disorder in a documentary.
“Catherine is very interested in the idea – both as a way of coming to terms with the condition and as a way of breaking down certain prejudices surrounding mental illness,” reveals a source close to the actress and husband Michael Douglas.
“Catherine has long had the intention of turning her hand to film making and this is something she feels passionate about.”
Recent reports claimed Catherine has officially joined the all-star cast of Rock of Ages, the big-screen adaptation of the hit, hard-rock Broadway musical.
“It’s a new character created just for the screen,” a source told Us Weekly magazine.
“She’s playing the mayor’s wife…Basically she’s the villain of the film. She wants to get rock and roll out of Los Angeles!
“Catherine is a hard-working actress, beautiful and talented. You never hear a bad word about her.
“And she won an Oscar for Chicago, a musical. This is perfect for her.”
