Emile Hirsch is taking responsibility for his own actions.
Soon after the actor was charged with assault for allegedly putting a female entertainment executive in a chokehold at the Sundance Film Festival, he checked himself into rehab.

While the Girl Next Door star didn't publicly make a statement, his spokesperson and attorney, Robert Offer says the actor regrets his actions.
Robert spoke on behalf of Emile and said:
"Emile consumed an enormous amount of alcohol on the evening in question and he has no memory of what happened.
Emile takes these allegations very seriously, and is devastated that any of this has occurred. A few days after the incident, Emile sought help and checked himself into an alcohol rehabilitation facility, where he remains today, to ensure nothing like this ever happens again."
Although the 29-year-old doesn't remember what exactly occurred that night, the police revealed the details they gathered from witnesses at the venue.

Apparently he was very intoxicated and started verbally berating her. They said:
"Hirsch appeared intoxicated and asked [movie exec Daniele Bernfeld] why she looked 'so tough' and said she was a 'rich kid' who should not be at Sundance."
Daniele is the entertainment executive we mentioned earlier.
Bernfeld claims she decided to move away from the actor to sit with a friend at another table, before Emile reportedly put her in a chokehold and:
"pulled her across the table and onto the floor"
The star then landed on top of her. While mounted on her body, he allegedly wrapped his hands around and started choking her.
Daniele supposedly blacked out briefly and went on to say two bystanders eventually pulled Emile off of her.
When the police finally arrived at the scene of the crime, they said Hirsch appeared to be very drunk and the red marks on Daniele's neck basically confirmed her story.
Emile is being charged with 3rd degree felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor intoxication.
He's due in court on March 16.
