It seems like someone is doing better! After a rough couple of months, Pete Davidson made a joke about his time in rehab, while having a beer at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah on Monday, January 28.

“I love Park City, Utah, because the last time I was here, I was in rehab,” the comedian, 25, told Variety while he was doing press for his new film, Big Time Adolescence. “It’s nice to be on the other side of it.”

The SNL star sat next to his costar and friend Machine Gun Kelly while he revealed more details about his past. He admitted that he stayed at Cirque Lodge — a drug addiction treatment center — about four years ago. “It speaks wonders to your rehab facilities,” he joked as he sipped the alcoholic beverage. “It worked out great.”

He continued, “No, I love it here. There is snow. Great snow. I have actually never seen it snow here, but there is always snow.”

It’s refreshing to see the Staten Island native smile and joke again. To recap, after he split from his ex-fiancée, Ariana Grande, in October 2018, he wrote an alarming message on his Instagram page.

“I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore,” he wrote two months after his broken engagement. “I’m doing my best to stay here for you but I actually don’t know how much longer I can last. All I’ve ever tried to do was help people. Just remember I told you so.”

Since then, the Trainwreck alum has stayed off of social media. “I can’t go on that for obvious reasons,” he told the outlet. “Just don’t go online. It doesn’t make me very happy. Even if it’s not about me, it’s random s—t … I’m not a fan of it.”

Pete got candid with his fans in December 2018 about how was bullied online for dating the pop star, among other things. “I’ve kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything,” he wrote. “I’m trying to understand how when someone happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of reference. Especially in today’s climate where everybody loves to be offended and upset it truly is mind-boggling.”

Well, it looks like 2019 is Pete’s year, and we’re here for it.
