Los Angeles - A spokesperson for Catherine Zeta-Jones says the actress has "proactively" checked into a mental health facility for treatment of her bipolar condition.

Publicist Sarah Fuller said in an e-mail to The Associated Press late on Monday that Zeta-Jones "is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner".
