London: Michael Douglas has opened up about his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones` bipolar disorder, admitting he is "proud" of the way she has actively tried to overcome her issues.

"It takes a lot of courage to seek help and I am proud of Catherine for doing something positive about her situation. It`s onwards and upwards for us," contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.

Zeta-Jones reportedly checked into a mental health facility in Connecticut early this month, where she spent five days combating a serious bout of depression.
