He's very good looking. He doesn't have to know how to act to succeed in Hollywood. Obviously.

Is there anyone in Hollywood who doesn't get easily & immediately addicted to anything they take? Good grief!

She SURE did--and got probation.
How did THAT happen?

His drug problem just mirrors hers, but not as bad.

I was addicted to pain meds, after back surgery. You only have to take it for a short time, me 4 weeks. I stopped taking it and almost died. This stuff should be taken off the market. I'm 68 years old, it can happen to anyone any age. I admitted myself to rehab, stayed 8 days, came out a different person, I will never take another Opiate drug!!~!!

I hope he can beat it, pills are tough. I was on pain pills for two years and when I finally got off them, I felt like a real person again.

the world is so backwards!! you can go to jail for trying "illegal" drugs but when prescription pills get you addicted its your fault you got addicted to them!! not the company who makes them or the people that prescribed them to you!!

I think it's gutsy for him to admit this and seek help. I wish him nothing but the best.

These actors/actresses are pathetic. I am so sick of hearing about their rehabs. They have such a hard life that they need to use drugs to feel better.
