Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, who is married to Michael Douglas, has reportedly checked herself into a mental health facility for bipolar disorder.
“After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her Bipolar II disorder,” her rep said in a statement. “She’s feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on her two upcoming films.”
A friend tells People that 41-year-old Zeta-Jones spent 5 days in an unidentified rehab facility.
“There’s no question it’s been a stressful year,” the friend says. “Catherine has had deal with Michael’s illness and that’s been hard. She went in for a few days because she’s about to start working, and wanted to make sure she’s in top form, which she is.”
Douglas, 66, announced in January that he was cancer-free after six months of chemotherapy and radiation for a tumor on his tongue.
