Burt Reynolds Enters Rehab

Veteran actor Burt Reynolds, 73, has entered rehab to deal with an addiction to pain medication.

"After a recent back surgery, Mr. Reynolds felt like he was going through hell and after a while, realized he was a prisoner of prescription pain pills," his manager said in a statement Wednesday, to People.com. "He checked himself into rehab in order to regain control of his life. Mr. Reynolds hopes his story will help others in a similar situation. He hopes they will not try to solve the problem by themselves, but realize that sometimes it is too tough to do on their own and they should seek help, as he did."
