The woman whose face dominated the screen in the early 2000s and whose marriage was #relationshipgoals has been taking a break from Hollywood to focus on her extraordinary life off-camera. Here are five reasons why you haven’t seen Catherine Zeta-Jones on the big screen.

Catherine Zeta-Jones is way too busy counting her money to worry about haters. She and husband Michael Douglas have a combined net worth of $200 million dollars. That would totally explain why she’s taking a break from her career. Instead, she’s jet setting around the world and making us all jealous!
She’s Been Diagnosed As Bipolar
One of the most interesting things about Zeta-Jones is that she’s very open about her mental health issues. In 2011, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She’s shared that, “Finding out that it was called something was the best thing that ever happened to me!” We’re rooting for you, Catherine!
She’s Struggled With Her Marriage
Apparently, there’s been some trouble in paradise for Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas.

However, they worked on their issues and rebuilt their unbreakable bond in 2016. Happy for you!
She’s Chooses Controversial Roles
When Zeta-Jones signed on to play actress Olivia de Havilland in the FX series Feud, she had no idea about the amount of backlash she would face for her choice in roles. Even though her performance garnered great reviews, de Havilland sued producer Ryan Murphy and Zeta-Jones for personal reasons.
She’s Putting Her Relationship First
When Michael Douglas fought stage IV tongue cancer, Zeta-Jones was right by his side. That’s because she’s putting work aside to focus on her relationship. She’s recognizing what’s most important in life. About Michael’s diagnosis, she stated, “You realize precious moments are something you can’t take for granted.” Cheers to another 20 years!
