Colin Farrell Checks Into Rehab But He's Not Alone

Colin Farrell has reportedly checked into an Arizona rehabilitation clinic to seek help in his battle with sobriety.

A source told Daily Mail the 41-year-old Irish actor has checked into The Meadows centre, which has hosted stars such as Tiger Woods, Elle Macpherson, Selena Gomez, and most recently Kevin Spacey when they've sought treatment.

Farrell has battled addiction issues for years, first checking into rehab in 2005, and celebrating 10 years sober just last year.

This time he's checked himself in after becoming overwhelmed with work and deciding to seek professional help before he went to a "bad place", according to the insider.

But he’s not the only star that’s been through rehab – think of a star and they’ve been there, even a few you wouldn't expect.
