We knew Chris Klein's struggle with alcoholism nearly cost him his career, but not his life!

The American Reunion star has revealed in a recent interview that had he not turned his life around, "I would have died, and I think about that every single day."

After 2 DUI's and a jail sentence, the heartthrob has been sober for 19 months and doesn't plan on looking back. Describing himself as the "luckiest guy alive," Chris told sources:

"It got to the point where I was a fragile shadow of the young man that came into this business. Today, I'm the luckiest guy alive."
