Comedian and Oscar-winning actor Robin Williams enters alcohol treatment. On this matter the star's publicist, Mara Buxbaum, said Wednesday August 9th, that "After 20 years of sobriety, Robin Williams found himself drinking again and has decided to take proactive measures to deal with this for his own well-being and the well-being of his family".

Prior to the announcement of the actor entering alcohol rehab, a National Enquirer story claimed Williams recently checked into a rehab facility in Oregon run by the famed Hazelden program. Buxbaum, however, declined to elaborate beyond the statement, while adding "He asks that you respect his and his family's privacy during this time. He looks forward to returning to work this fall to support his upcoming film releases."

Williams' latest movie, the thriller "The Night Listener", opened last Friday, taking in an under-whelming $3.6 million over the weekend. Besides all, he also is having three more movies set to hit theaters this year, one of which is the animated feature "Happy Feet".
