Our actress has a drinking problem
. A big drinking problem. This is not someone who has a few problems now and then. This is an actress who is in serious need of help and has reached that point in her drinking where if you wanted to compare her to Nicolas Cage's character in leaving Las Vegas you would not be that far off the mark. Our B list actress who probably should have been Oscar nominated not that long ago and was pretty much an A list actress not even five years ago now has a drinking problem so bad that she can't sleep for longer than two or three hours each night before her body craves booze. Yes, she has been to rehab, and for awhile she did get better. It was the medicine they gave her which made her body hate alcohol. Well, she got over that. She now drinks almost consistently throughout every waking hour. Her last big role was a great role in an indie film and she nailed it but she was only able to keep it together during that movie because she had someone watching her constantly and only allowed her enough booze to not get sick. On her own she can't do it. Her boyfriend drinks too, so he is no help. He thinks it is cool that she wants to drink all day and night and he loves that she can get crazy if she drinks too much. It really is affecting her work and her ability to get work. At one recent photoshoot it took eight hours instead of two because her body would not stop twitching. She gets the shakes at least two or three times a day. She used to get them once a week. She needs help, but is scared of what her life will be without booze.
