In an interview to be aired today on US TV show Access Hollywood, Williams describes the Gibson saga as a "big wake-up call." He explains, "Well, if (rehab) was good enough for him, I'll go.

Williams Recovering In Rehab After Relapse

17 August 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Comedian Robin Williams reportedly decided to check himself into a rehabilitation facility after more than 20 years of sobriety in a bid to save his marriage to wife Marsha. The Good Will Hunting Oscar winner felt under extreme pressured to keep up his funny persona in the face of adversity, and began to seek solace with alcohol - to the determent of his 17-year union. A source tells American publication Us Weekly, "In public, he had to be 'on' all the time. When he was drinking alone was the only time he didn't have to do that." William's drinking took a toll on the marriage, according to the source who adds, "Of course (the marriage) suffered, but Marsha is the one who encouraged him to get help." The 55-year-old star checked himself into Newberg, Oregon's Hazeldon Springbrook clinic on July 11. »

Williams Fighting Alcoholism After 20 Sober Years

10 August 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Robin Williams has gone public with his latest battle with alcoholism following tabloid reports he checked into a rehabilitation facility last month after a drinking binge. The movie funnyman, who has been candid about his past drugs and alcohol abuse, reportedly started drinking again while filming The Big White in Alaska two years ago and now he's back in rehab seeking help. Tabloid reports suggest the Good Will Hunting star checked into the Hazelden Springbrook rehab facility in Oregon last month - and even celebrated his 55th birthday there on July 21. Williams' publicist Mara Buxbaum has confirmed the fact that the actor is indeed seeking help to control an alcohol abuse problem. She tells WENN, "After 20 years of sobriety, Robin Williams found himself drinking again and has decided to take proactive measures to deal with this for his own well-being and the wellbeing of his family. He asks that you respect his and his family's privacy during this time. He looks forward to returning to work this fall to support his upcoming film releases." Williams hopes to be healthy again to promote Man Of The Year, which hits cinema screens in October. The Oscar winner follows fellow Hollywood star Mel Gibson, who entered a rehab facility last month following his drink-driving arrest in Malibu, California. »
