News is in that stand-up comedian and actor John Mulaney has checked into rehab.
Here’s what we know…
They still sometimes need to reach out for help – which is exactly what John Mulaney has done this week.
Mulaney, who is best known for his work as a stand-up comedian and actor on Saturday Night Live, has just come forward with some very personal news…
He has just checked into rehab.
This is a huge step forward for the actor…
And fans have been taking to social media to praise his brave decision to try and get better – but they’ve also been reminding others that addiction really isn’t something to joke about.
Last year, the comedian spoke to Esquire and got candid about his struggles with addiction, which began with drinking in his early teenage years and progressed to drug use in his early twenties.
“I was really outgoing, and then at twelve, I wasn’t. I didn’t know how to act. And then I was drinking, and I was hilarious again … I never liked smoking pot,” he explained.
“Then I tried c******, and I loved it. I wasn’t a good athlete, so maybe it was some young male thing of ‘This is the physical feat I can do. Three V****** and a tequila and I’m still standing. Who’s the athlete now?'”
“I was like, ‘You’re f****** out of control’. And I thought to myself, ‘I don’t like this guy anymore. I’m not rooting for him’.”
2020 has been an unbelievably hard year for all of us, and it seems that the strains of the pandemic got the better of the actor as he started drinking alcohol and using drugs again.
Vulture has reported that he is currently in a rehab facility in Pennsylvania to seek treatment for his problems.
A source then told Page Six, “John’s friends and family are happy that he’s finally getting some help and focusing on his health.”
“His fans know he’s struggled in the past with sobriety, he has talked about it openly. Unfortunately, he has struggled again during the pandemic. He’s on board with his recovery and he’s not fighting against rehab.”
