LOS ANGELES (AP) - ``Pearl Harbor'' star and Oscar winner Ben Affleck has entered a live-in rehabilitation facility for alcohol abuse. Affleck, who turns 29 on Aug. 15, voluntarily entered the Promises rehabilitation facility in Malibu on Tuesday. Promises is where Paula Poundstone and Robert Downey Jr. are undergoing treatment. ``Ben is a self-aware and smart man who has decided that a fuller life awaits him without alcohol. He has chosen to seek out professional assistance and is committed to traveling a healthier road with the support of his family, friends and fans,'' Affleck publicist David Pollick said Friday. Another hollywood elite, who wants to tell us how to live our lives.... [url]http://dailynews.yahoo.com/htx/ap/20010803/en/people_affleck_1.html[/url]

Kind of a "do as I say, not as I do" sort of thing, huh? Isn't it amazing how much authority, prestige, and influence is ascribed to people who's profession is to entertain? Sort of like a high order of mimes or clowns.

If he's so bloody self-aware and smart, he wouldn't become a rummie in the first place.

I think what drove him to the edge was the realization of how fucking crappy Pearl Harbor was. Go Ahead Ben, have another beer....[beer]

Another one of our beloved role models showing what a great role model he is. At least he will have plenty of friends with Paula and that loser Robert Downey Jr.

I just hope they cure him as well as they cured Robert Downey Jr. GunLvr

Another socialist pansy. He was out there at Harvard advocating a "living minimum wage" of $10.xx an hour. What a dipshit. Obviously he did not take a macroeconomics course while he attended that crappy school. themao [chainsawkill]

Lay off Ben, he has combat fatigue after single handedly defending Pearl Harbor, attacking Tokyo, and fighting off that famine victim Gwenneth Paltrow.

Quite frankly, I believe that Robert Downey, Jr., has shown himself to be so incapable of rehabilitation, that I think he should be honored in some way. From now on, whenever you would ordinarily say- 'Man, that's a real downer,' you should say instead, 'Man, that's a real [red][b]downey[/b][/red]'. Or 'I'm feeling real downey today.'
