2. Robin Williams
Early in his career, Williams had a problem with cocaine and alcohol but began the road to sobriety after friend John Belushi died of an overdose. The actors had been partying together than infamous night.
Hardcore Robin Williams fans will insist that the peak of his comedic genius existed during his days of drug and alcohol abuse, but the realists out there know that no amount of publicity or money is worth the physical and mental damaged caused by addiction.
We still love to see him on screen today. Williams unfortunately had a very public relapse during the last few years. His renewed battle with addiction was a factor in his 2008 divorce from Marsha Garces.
He seems to have returned to the “straight and narrow” once again. He is remarried to Susan Schneider, and returned to the small screen for the first time in decades.
He is currently starring as an Ad Executive who is a recovering addict. Here’s hoping he is able to stay on that proverbial wagon for good, this time.
