The hunky actor first opened up about his alcohol abuse problem in his book, ‘Evolution: The Cutting Edge Guide to Breaking Down Mental Walls and Building the Body You’ve Always Wanted.’

In 2013, he told ‘HuffPost Live,’ “There was a period of about four years where I needed to quit drinking. And the drinking got in the way [of my career]. And I talk about that a lot in the book. It was one of those obstacles that I had to get over and once again I needed to clear the road in order for these things to happen, so it really is an inside job. I had to clean up my act and figure that whole situation out… My life was ruined. I was homeless, careless and broke with no career, so yes, it was worth it [to get sober].”
