Hollywood actress KIRSTEN DUNST has become the latest star to reportedly check into rehab - joining the same Utah medical facility as EVA MENDES.
According to U.S. magazine Star, the 25-year-old was admitted to Cirque Lodge after a week of wild partying at last month's (Jan08) Sundance Film Festival.
The facility is also the same centre where Lindsay Lohan spent last summer (07) for substance abuse problems.
A source tells Star, "She (Dunst) desperately needed help. She seemed to be intoxicated when she checked in because she was acting really erratic. She was extremely emotional, constantly breaking down in tears.
"She not in a good place right now, but thankfully, she's getting the help she needs." Dunst recently dismissed rumours she was on the verge of a breakdown after reports surfaced of her alleged "erratic" behaviour at Sundance, with sources claiming her "odd" antics left friends apologising to other partygoers. But representatives for the Spider-Man star denied the reports insisting, "Kirsten is fine."
That makes two this week that we have heard of....
TMZ has learned "Designing Women" star Delta Burke checked herself into a psychiatric hospital last week for depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and "hoarding."
We truly hope poor Delta comes out... well... put together again.
Now Dear Kirsten... who in Hollywood is next...
Funny thing is... sweet Kirsten checks in ... bless her heart.. and Britney, poor thing, checks out...
The following statement was released to CNN's Anderson Cooper by Jamie and Lynne Spears, Britney's parents:
"As parents of an adult child in the throws (sic) of a mental health crisis, we were extremely disappointed this morning to learn that over the recommendation of her treating psychiatrist, our daughter Britney was released from the hospital that could best care for her and keep her safe. We are deeply concerned about our daughter's safety and vulnerability and we believe her life is presently at risk. There are conservatorship orders in place created to protect our daughter that are being blatantly disregarded. We ask only that the court's orders be enforced so that a tragedy may be averted."
What a rehab, psyched out month.. and we are only half way through... maybe it has something to do with the writers strike? Is this what happens when actors do not have any writers to give them character?...hmmm...
