Catherine Zeta-Jones has reportedly entered a mental health treatment center for a bipolar disorder ... despite her rep squarely denying the story to TMZ.

One of Catherine's reps now tells People.com, "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."

We're told Catherine had been in Silver Hill Hospital in Connecticut for treatment, but she has checked out.

The article didn't say the stress of the last year MADE her bi-polar, but it can certainly make the condition harder to deal with. Just because some might not have known she was bi-polar doesn't mean it suddenly happened, many people start displaying bi polar characteristics in their early teens. It's a shame that some on here thinks mental illness is a cause for ridicule.

People have some compassion. I do believe she has had a rough year and she does love Michael Douglas. Hope they both will be ok.

As someone that suffers from bipolar disorder it is comforting to know someone so talented and successful has survived this illness. I know you wont see this catherine, but thank you for making this public. Some of us really need to see this sort of thing.

Bipolar doesn't equal crazy, to the rude *******s saying that. Also there are two types of bipolar I and II. The second doesn't have as the typical episodes of mania most people associate with the illness and not the highs and lows more of more frequent dealings with lows and suicidal thoughts. There is the "highs" but maybe not as obvious with type I. Some people can go years with out a problem them get slammed with the feelings others go up and down every month or more. It's not something to make fun of but a real problem to be taken seriously such as diabetes or other illnesses.

What, did Michael get too much attention last year with his throat cancer so she has to do something to even the score??

Needless to say, I don't care much for this arrogant, Hollywood phoney. What an attention grabbing fool!!
