Michael Douglas on Oprah: Catherine Zeta-Jones Is Doing ‘Great’

This week, actor Michael Douglas sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey, during which he shed more light on wife Catherine Zeta-Jones' recent stay at a mental health facility, where she was being treated for bipolar II disorder.

In the interview airing Tuesday, Douglas said his own personal issues may have contributed to Zeta-Jones' depression.

"My oldest son is in federal prison, my ex-wife is suing me, and I got cancer. It's kind of hard for the wife to say, 'I'm depressed,'" he said, according to ET Online. "So I think that, you know, really probably played a big part of it."

New Movie Releases: ‘Fast Five,’ ‘Prom’ [VIDEOS]

Two new movies are opening nationwide this weekend. One is the fifth installment (yes, fifth) of the popular summer blockbuster series 'The Fast and the Furious', this time called 'Fast Five'. Most of the main players in the series are back for more high action, high energy scenes, with tons of car crashes.

The other big release this weekend is a movie called 'Prom', which as you might have guessed focuses on the events surrounding and leading up to a high school prom. It's hard to say which film will do better at the box office, as these films are targeted to two completely different audiences. Which one would you rather see?

Take a look at their trailers, Mr. Moviefone's Six Second Reviews and a list of movies still in theaters after the jump.

According to the AP, Altoona -- which has 31,000 residents, and is located 85 miles east of Pittsburgh -- will receive $25,000 for the tongue-in-cheek product placement. It will also play host to the East Coast premiere of the film on Wednesday.
