This award-winning actor turned to the bottle during his marriage to Jennifer Garner who later took him to rehab in 2012.

“You’re trying to make yourself feel better with eating or drinking or sex or gambling or whatever. But that ends up making your life worse. Then you do more of it to make that discomfort go away. Then the real pain starts. It becomes a vicious cycle you can’t break. That’s at least what happened to me.”
