Everybody in Hollywood is addicted to something.
You’d think it was some town of 40 people in Appalachia or something.
In a recent Facebook post, Affleck announced that he’s completed another stint in rehab for alcohol addiction, which he has struggled with throughout his life.
“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront.”
Affleck previously went to rehab in 2001 at age 29 for similar issues.
“I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step. I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”
In 2015, Affleck and his wife, Jennifer Garner, announced that they were separating, but so far nothing has been finalized. His last film, the Warner Bros. gangster flick Live By Night, tanked critically and at the box office, and he got replaced to direct the next Batman flick.
Ben Affleck and his tramp stamp are having a bad time.
But kudos to him for getting his shit together. Addiction is a bitch.
