Bipolar TERMINATOR star Linda Hamilton blames the break-down of her marriage to actor Bruce Abbott on her unpredictable behaviour.

When the couple married in 1982 the Hollywood star had no idea her mood swings and tantrums were down to a bipolar disorder - a form of manic depression that causes severe highs and lows, which until 10 years ago (95) remained untreated.

The pair divorced in 1989, shortly after their son DALTON was born.

Hamilton says, "Bruce couldn't take the ups and downs any longer. I was very physical at times.

"I would grab him by the legs and refuse to let him leave.

"He lived in fear of me."

The 48-year-old actress has now wants to help other manic depressants through her Complete Wellness Programme.
