American Pie star Chris Klein has checked himself into a rehab facility for his alcohol addiction. After his second DUI arrest, the actor was said to have blown a .20 into the breathalyzer. This has prompted him to finally seek help (and possibly a way out of jail time?)
He made the first move himself, without prompting from anyone, so that’s a good start. His rep released the following statement: “After recent events, Chris was forced to take a clear look at a problem he has been trying to deal with himself for years. He understands now that he can not beat this disease alone. He thanks everyone for their support as he takes all the necessary steps to deal with his addiction and asks for privacy while doing so.”
He can have all of the privacy he wants, it’s not like the paparazzi are staking out his doorstep, right?
Chris has entered the Cirque Lodge, which was made famous by Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. Here’s hoping that he comes out after getting the help he needs. I can’t really bash anyone for realizing they have a problem, it’s those celebs that just keep going, saying, “There’s nothing wrong with me”, that irks me to no end. We hope he can achieve some sort of relevance upon his exit from the facility, but we won’t put any money on it. Would you?
