LOS ANGELES – Oscar-winner Catherine Zeta-Jones on Monday headed back into treatment for bipolar disorder, her spokeswoman said.

Zeta-Jones started a 30-day treatment on Monday, according to entertainment website TMZ.

The actress said in 2011 that she has bipolar disorder, or manic depression, a mood disorder in which euphoric states can alternate with severe depression.

The Welsh actress, 43, won an Academy Award in 2003 for her supporting role in “Chicago” and has appeared in films such as “Traffic” and “Ocean’s Twelve.”
