Catherine Zeta-Jones looked stunning in a shimmering red evening gown as she presented an award at the Tony Awards on Sunday evening. It was her first first awards show appearance since she bravely announced publicly in April that she was battling Bipolar II disorder.
Catherine Zeta-Jones (41) looked elegant and totally composed and happy in a red Elie Saab gown. She presented the awards for best dramatic actor and best musical actor at New York’s Beacon Theater as part of this year’s prestigious Tony Awards.
“I got my big break tap dancing on 42nd Street in London,” she said, explaining her love of the theater. “That’s where it all started, and I would love to do a show in London again, but no one has asked me!”
Zeta-Jones last year won a Tony Award for the best actress in a musical for the Broadway revival of “A Little Night Music.”
In April, the Oscar winner’s publicist said that, “after dealing with the stress of the past year (her husband Michael Douglas battled stage IV throat cancer), Catherine made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her Bipolar II Disorder.”
It was a brave decision to seek the treatment and to go public on it in that way. But Catherine Zeta-Jones looked beautiful and elegant. The treatment seems to have been really successful so let’s hope she gets her wish granted to appear in on stage in London’s West End, and that her acting career lasts for many years yet.
