Catherine zeta jones, Michael Douglas "couldn't be more supportive" of Catherine Zeta-Jones. The actress has bipolar II disorder and yesterday it was confirmed she has checked into a clinic for maintenance treatment.

She is expected to be away for 30 days and her husband is fully in favour of her decision. He couldn't be more supportive, just like she is of him. They're solid," an insider told People.

"They're really, really devoted to each other."

Earlier this month, the couple were seen together at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's 40th Annual Chaplin Award Gala in New York City.

They stayed close all evening and Catherine gave no indication that anything was wrong.

"Catherine was on his [Michael's] arm much of the time," a source explained. "She seemed really relaxed and happy. I saw her with a cocktail and she was socialising and enjoying the evening... Nothing seemed out of the ordinary, and they both seemed to be having a good time."

Zeta-Jones sought help for her illness in 2011, at the same time Douglas was getting over throat cancer.

She was open about having biopolar II disorder and her representative has insisted her latest spell in treatment is all part of her plan to properly deal with it.

"Previously Catherine has said that she is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner," her spokesperson Cece Yorke said.

Another source explained: "There was no big problem. This was just a good time to do it. She is in between projects. This has always been part of the plan. She would manage her health. She is vigilant about it."

In 2011, Douglas discussed Zeta-Jones' decision to seek help. He spoke of his intense pride in his wife and called the move a "positive" one.

The couple have been married since 2000 and have two children together.
