Asides from Jon Moxley, there are other celebrities who have gone to rehab. Learn about Ben Affleck, Eva Mendez, Kelly Osbourne, Britney Spears, and other celebrities who have gone to rehab for various reasons.
1. Ben Affleck
The actor and director Ben Affleck came from a family where his father was an alcoholic, a habit that he later picked. In an interview that he granted Barbara Walters in 2012, he stated that his father “drank all day, every day,” but got sober eventually.
Affleck stopped drinking in 1997 after realizing that he regretted the things he did when he was drunk. He then checked himself into Malibu’s alcohol and drug rehabilitation center in 2001.
At the time he stopped drinking, he spoke with a reporter via Fox News and said: “I just wanted to stop. I started regretting some things I did when I was drunk. It’s funny to be obnoxious or out of control, but then it’s like, ‘I think I hurt that person’s feelings, ‘I made a fool of myself’ or ‘I didn’t want to kiss that girl.’ I have almost no inhibitions, so it’s dangerous for me.”
2. Eva Mendez
Actress Eva Mendes entered rehab in February 2008 for substance abuse. The actress’ rep said: “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.”
