We're told the "Ghost Rider" star is at the famous Cirque Lodge, near Sundance. The Lodge, which treated Lindsay Lohan and other stars, is one of the most respected treatment facilities in the country.

Eva has been at Cirque for several weeks.

Her rep tells TMZ "Eva has been working hard for the past year and made a positive decision to take some much-needed time off to proactively attend to some personal issues that, while not critical, she felt deserved some outside professional support. Out of respect for Eva's privacy, we do not wish to discuss further details."

What the heck is going on with the celebrities?! Everybody and their brother in Hollywood is doing drugs! Perhaps it's just it's a cultural thing endemic to the entertainment business.

She's just doing it to try and keep up with the Joneses. She's such a wannabe! I never have liked her!

One day at a time, Eva M. "Something inside cries out, enough, I've had enough, and then they are ready to take that first and often most difficult step toward dealing with their disease."

To be honest, this is sad because she is a really great actress and I really hope that she is able to overcome this obstacle better than most that we are seeing in and coming out of rehab.

Nothing surprises me when it comes to Hollywood, anymore. And just to think, some of us dolts actually look up to and value the opinions of these priviledged brats. Funny how everyone wants to be rich but few can actually handle the headaches and pressures of it.

Look in the Mirror    

Are you kidding............... Now you decide to pretend to have a tiny bit of charachter............ "Out of respect for Eva, you are not sharing her personal information, but you have no problem whatsoever dragging Britney through the absolute mud, making her look like a complete loser and I'm sure waiting for the day that she dies so you can say your famous words "TMZ reported it first"..... I hope you are proud of yourself you loser website...........................

#42- I completely agree with what you are saying. I think Heath's passing has somewhat brought reality a little closer for some of these celebs. Perhaps even Britney as well. Maybe seeing these two events makes them realize how easy it is to "flip the switch" unwillingly. People are still talking about Heath not liking the publicity of being a celebrity... maybe some of these people admire him for that, agree with him and don't want to go where he went mentally. Eva probably isn't anywhere near the point of DUI, overdose, or going completely nuts... but is just being cautious. Why should a person get to that point? Especially if they have the money to avoid it!?! The biggest reason they do avoid it is because so many people view it as a weakness... then it gets into the media and BOOM, your entire fan base diminishes.

Everybody acts like all of this is something new..... it's not just celebs and popstars that seek treatment these days. It's just they don't have the privacy we have. Not to mention us ordinary folks usually end up in prison or dead instead, without a mention in the papers let alone the tabloids. Personally I'd rather be one of the unmentioned then the celeb that has all their personal buisnees splattered all over the place. Just because they are celeb's doesn't mean they should have to give up their privacy.
