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."

Eva is one beautiful lady. I hope she can tackle her evils and get back to just looking good. If she is in need of any discipline, I would be happy to put her over my lap and give her a good spanking.....Bad girl~!!

I did not expect this at all. She has always seemed so good and down to earth, yet I am glad she has voluntarily sought help. I wish her the best while she is going through this rough time.

Sounds like it may be more of a personal crisis than chemical. There are a lot of people that probably need rehab in this day and age, but celebs are one of the few that can afford it. We spend tax dollars on other countries and dont take care of our own with health insurance and better jobs.

THINKING PERSON    

LISTEN THERE IS GOOD AND BAD IN ALL THINGS, ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY.!! THERE ARE MANY CELEBS THAT ARE NOT IN REHAB. THEY REMEMBER THAT IT'S JUST A JOB. THOSE WHO GET CAUGHT UP ARE BELIEVING THE HYPE. LOOK AT SMITH, TRAVOLTA, WARNER, LABELLE, THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE CELEBS OF THE PAST AND THE ONES IN THE FUTURE IS THAT THEY REALLY HAD TO "WORK", AND STARVE AND GO UP THE LADDER. MOST HAVE GOOD BACKGROUND LIKE BEYONCE'S MOTHER AND USHERS MOM, THESE PAREBTS WERE STRONG WOMEN AND MEN, THEY MADE THEIR CHILDREN WORK AND REGULATED THEIR LIVES IN THE RIGHT WAY. MOST CAME FROM VERY BAD BACKGROUNDS AND MADE A DECISION "NEVER" TO LOOK BACK. I SALUTE THOSE AND GIVE THEM CREDIT FOR THEIR STRENGTH AND GUIDANCE, THESE ONES SHOULD THANK THE FATHER FOR PARENTS LIKE THESE.

Eva did it right - little fanfare...no freakin' entourage to escort her to a hospital....he stayed out of the limelight for what appears to be several weeks. She's such a wonderful actress and I'm glad she's getting treatment.
It's a private struggle that somehow the media found out - and Eva, I wish you all the best!!

leave Travolta alone!!!    

It's her strict hispanic upbringing that makes sex a taboo. I totally understand that.

I would just like to say that addiction isn't only happening in Hollywood, it happens all over the world. Famous or not, mental or not, it can happen to anyone, even the people you never could have imagined who are probably doing it right now and you don't even know! Hopefully though the people who want to live life and know it is a blessing will quit whatever, if it is a few drinks or a bing every night. To whomever goes to these rehabs and is successful I applause you, even for trying I give you a thumbs up!

This was an unexpected thing to me. I never thought she had a problem. But people don't have to look like it to have a problem ya know. I just wish her the best. Alot of Celebs have been hitting rehabs; like an epidemic. But goes to show that the best of us have problems.
