Glenn Close on Catherine Zeta-Jones' battle with Bipolar Disorder: "I immediately thought, boy... and she built a career dealing with that"

Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Live" welcomes Glenn Close for an honest and engaging primetime interview.

Joining Piers Morgan in studio, the Tony, Golden Globe and Emmy award winner spoke passionately about mental health awareness, a cause near and dear to her, as multiple members of her family are battling various symptoms.

As chairperson and founder of "Bring Change 2 Mind," Close graciously attached her name, face and voice to an organization that lists among it's objectives "working to end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness."

More than a quarter century since staring opposite Michael Douglas in the hit film "Fatal Attraction," tonight Close offers her reaction to learning that Douglas' wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, suffers from bipolar disorder:

"I immediately thought, boy ... and she built a career dealing with that," she remarks. "And not being able to talk about it, I'm sure."

Despite her professional relationship with the 68-year-old Douglas, Close says she hasn't reached out to him on a personal level:

"There's always that thing, you want to give people their space and sometimes, unless they bring it up," she explains. "It's a great tribute to whatever support group she has around her, and that's, you know, her family, I'm sure. Because you can't do it without family."

Tune in at 9 for the entire interview with Close, as the six-time Academy Award nominee opens up about her work in front of the camera and her passions beyond it.

    Catherine Zeta-Jones is a beautiful, classy , vibrant woman who hasn't worked at her professional craft in far too long. I've missed her in film. She needs to feed her own soul again, which is real therapy. I wish her well.
