Days after checking in to a mental health clinic, Zeta tries retail therapy - with her little girl's help

Just days earlier she was checking herself into a mental health clinic.
But as she was pictured in public for the first time since her treatment, Catherine Zeta-Jones appeared relaxed and cheerful.
And the troubled actress had plenty of support in the form of her seven-year-old daughter Carys, who clutched her hand tightly as the pair went shopping.

Wearing matching blue and white striped tops, mother and daughter visited a cafe with a friend and strolled in the sun.
An observer who saw the pair in upstate New York on Friday said: ‘Catherine looked in astonishing shape considering she’s been through such a rough time.
‘Her daughter was clearly delighted to be with her. They look so happy together. It shows what a strong woman she is.’

The 41-year-old, who revealed last week that she has bipolar II disorder, spent five days at the £770-a-day Silver Hill psychiatric hospital in New Canaan, Connecticut, near her country estate.
She sought help after struggling to cope with the trauma of husband Michael Douglas’s battle with throat cancer.

Her publicist said: ‘After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check into a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her bipolar II disorder.
‘She’s feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on two upcoming films.’
On Friday, the couple were spotted ay a pizza take-away in Greenwich, Connecticut.
The actress, 41, and her 66-year-old husband stopped by Pizza Post parlour for their modest take-away snack.
Onlookers say that the couple looked happy as they waited for their meal.
And film star husband Michael was out and about again yesterday, walking hand-in-hand with his daughter as the pair went to the New York Rangers game.
