15 Celebrities Who Battled Addiction and Won

Posted on

Perhaps one of the worst problems a person can get into is drug or alcohol addiction. And the stars are no exception: they are just as much at risk as anyone else.

Today Primefresh presents a list of strong-willed celebrities who managed to change themselves and get rid of bad habits!

Angelina Jolie

“I did almost every type of drug in existence. Those were really dark times for me.“

Incredibly, these words belong to one of the most stunning women on the planet! Angelina Jolie’s biography is full of bitter experiences: she used to suffer from anorexia and depression. However, by the time she got the lead role in the Lara Croft movie, Angie was already ”clean.” After starring in this film, the actress became world famous, adopted a child, began her romance with Brad Pitt, and adopted another child. Angelina succeeded in defeating her addiction by surrounding herself with people worth living for.

Robert Downey Jr.

This charismatic young man from a family of actors was always destined for a brilliant future, but Robert failed his first trial by fame and went through a period of wild revelry and substance abuse. Those heady days and nights resulted in scandals, loss of contracts with major studios, and serious problems with the law.

The actor was sentenced to 16 months in prison and compulsory treatment. He spent almost a year in a clinic, after which he firmly decided to stop using drugs. Robert’s friends helped him to get new roles, and the critics reacted favorably to his comeback. Following the well-deserved success of Downey Jr.’s performance in Iron Man, the time came for the actor to start dictating his own contract terms to the Hollywood bosses.

Still, who knows what prestigious movie awards Robert might have won were it not for those years lost to addiction.
