After a tumultuous year, Nicholas Brendon is finally asking for help.
As we reported in May, the former Buffy The Vampire Slayer star was arrested for the THIRD time this year for an incident involving substance abuse.
Although the 44-year-old checked himself into rehab early last month, it appears he is still in dire need of professional coaching.
And he is asking for celebrity physician Dr. Drew!
On Saturday, the actor went on Twitter to ask his many followers to help him get in touch with the TV personality.
We greatly applaud his honesty!
In the recent issue of Interview Magazine, Christian Slater talks to his Nymphomanic director Lars Von Trier about his tumultuous relationship with his father, Michael Hawkins, who greatly suffers from a mental illness.
The Heathers actor confesses:
Zayn Jared Padalecki!
As we reported last month, the 32-year-old shocked fans when he cancelled an appearance at JIBCON, in which his manager revealed he "pushed himself to his limits and is suffering from exhaustion."
On Saturday, the Supernatural star attended the ATX Television Festival — where he participated in the much-hyped Gilmore Girls reunion panel — and was back to his cheerful self!
When asked if he took a break, he exclaimed:
"It's been amazing. I did reboot. I did have a chance to reboot, and it was amazing."
The San Antonio-native confesses that ever since he became a professional actor, his work schedule has been extremely demanding.
"I was 17 years old when I moved to Los Angeles, and I just kind of got into a habit…Everything was like, work, work, work, work, do, do, do, do… And the last summer, my life has changed a lot. I have a wife. I have two sons, and so I really needed a chance to just unplug. And it was the best thing I've ever done. I'll probably do it every year."
In fact, this experience has taught him that needs to respect his limits as — unlike the demons and monsters he hunts on his hit science fiction show — he is merely human.
"You find out you're finite. And for a guy like me who's really Type A, put me to work, give me more, do more! It's difficult to admit that you're a finite individual, right? But it was humbling, and I'm very proud I got to do it."
We're so glad Jared took time to focus on himself, and we're so happy he's back to normal!

Demi Lovato Continues To Show How Much She Appreciates Wilmer Valderrama For Saving Her Life! WATCH!
This is all so beautiful.
The 22-year-old singer has had experiences with mental illness and eating disorders first hand, but she'll never, ever forget who was there and supported her during that time in her life.
Dems opened up about her struggles with her illness to HuffPost Live in an interview on Thursday and once again thanked Wilmer for standing by her side.
"He never takes credit for my sobriety, but I guarantee I wouldn't be alive without him today."
That sincere gratefulness never ceases to make us tear up.
We love it.

This is just so sad.
We hate to have to tell you this, but it looks like legendary actor Omar Sharif has unfortunately been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
According to Omar's son Tarek El-Sharif, the 83-year-old has been dealing with the disease for the past three years, and often gets his movies confused.
Tarek shared a rather grim statement about his father's mental status in a recent interview, saying:
