Nothing seemed amiss when Hollywood super couple Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones stepped out April 22 in NYC for the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Chaplin Award Gala. But on Monday the actress’ rep confirmed that the actress, 43, had “proactively” checked into a facility for her bipolar disorder. “Catherine was on his arm much of the time,” a fellow attendee of the gala told People. “She seemed really relaxed and happy.

The move is apparently all about doctors monitoring her medication and keeping up to date on her condition (bipolar II disorder can cause severe mood swings and depression).
“Previously Catherine has said that she is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner,” the rep, Cece Yorke, said in a statement.
