A spokeswoman for Catherine Zeta-Jones says the actress has "proactively" checked into a mental health facility for treatment of her bipolar condition, The Associated Press reports.
Publicist Sarah Fuller said in an email to The Associated Press late Monday that Zeta-Jones "is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner."
Two years ago, the 43-year-old Oscar winner checked into a similar facility for a brief stay for treatment of her condition, known as Bipolar II. The disorder is characterized by mood swings and depressive episodes, and is commonly treated with medication and psychotherapy.
Zeta-Jones has been one of the busiest talents in show business of late, appearing in films such as "Rock of Ages," "Playing for Keeps," "Broken City" and "Side Effects."
Her most recent treatment was first reported by TMZ.
Zach Braff wants you to help fund his next movie!
And not everyone's happy about that. Almost immediately after Braff announced his Kickstarter campaign to fund his "Garden State" follow-up film, "Wish I Was There," the criticism began, E! News reports. But in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, the former "Scrubs" star defends his grass-roots campaign.
"People seem to think I have Oprah Winfrey money," he says. "I've done well in my career, but I am not sitting on $22 million."
He also points out that his backers will get something in return for their cash, saying, "Even the most entry-level backer will get access to an online magazine about the making of the film. If David Fincher, who I'm a huge fan of, had a video blog of the making of one of his movies, I would have been the first one there."
As for those who don't approve of Braff's use of Kickstarter? They don't have to be involved! "People who don't like what I'm doing, that's fine," he says. "That's the great thing about crowd-sourcing - it's very pragmatic. You're into it or you're not. There are obviously a lot of people who like the idea and will support it. I feel like we've all joined this little club and we're going to make a movie together."
Braff has already surpassed his $2 million goal; 24 days remain should you still want to contribute to the making of the film.

NBC announced on Tuesday that the Peabody and Emmy Award-winning journalist, who previously served as an anchor and correspondent for NBC News from 1986 to 2004, will return as a special anchor reporting on "the shifting roles, emerging power and evolving needs of women in modern life."
Serving as an editor at large for women's issues, Shriver's reports will be seen across multiple NBCUniversal platforms including NBC News, CNBC, MSNBC and NBC Sports.
"I've always believed that television can inspire and elevate humanity, and that's my mission with this new partnership," Shriver said in a statement. "I look forward to shining a light on all areas of a woman's experience - from faith and finances, wellness and work, to relationships and the new realities of modern life - and exploring these issues in a way that brings the voices of men into these critically important conversations."
NBC News will also have exclusive broadcast access to Shriver's award-winning series of Shriver Reports, with the next installment, focusing on financial insecurity among American women and families, scheduled to air in early 2014.
Hugh Jackman's unwanted gym pal is giving the legal system a workout.
Katherine Thurston - the woman accused of stalking "The Wolverine" star at New York City's Gotham gym - has been slapped with a burglary charge in addition to misdemeanor stalking and harassment, E! News has learned.
Sources close to the Manhattan District Attorney's Office confirmed that the burglary count handed down in a grand jury indictment is a felony, which carries a maximum sentence of seven years in prison.
The 47-year-old homeless woman was arrested for stalking on April 13 after she stormed past the staff at the West Village gym and surprised Jackman as he was pumping iron, throwing an electric razor filled with her own pubic hair at him.
It's unclear what Thurston allegedly stole but she can at least take heart with this: Prosecutors did drop charges of menacing and criminal weapons possession.
Thurston remains jailed in lieu of a $7,500 bond. Her next court date is scheduled for May 8.
A rep for the Aussie actor was unavailable for comment.
But shortly after the incident Jackman did tweet a thank-you to fans for all their support.
