Catherine Zeta-Jones presented at Sunday’s Tony Awards, marking her first award show appearance since her courageous public announcement in April that she was battling Bipolar II disorder.
Zeta-Jones, 41, looked elegant and put together in a red Elie Saab gown. She presented the awards for best dramatic actor and best musical actor at New York’s Beacon Theater.
“I got my big break tap dancing on 42nd Street in London,” she said of her fondness for 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 won best actress in a musical last year 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.”
