Before becoming one of Hollywood's most bankable stars, Robert Downey Jr. faced numerous problems with addiction. From 1996-2001 the actor was in and out of rehab and even had some jail stints. He's reportedly been clean since 2003 though, and said becoming sober was like awakening from a "20-year coma".

Martin Sheen

'The West Wing' and 'Wall Street' star struggled with alcoholism for years (even suffering a heart attack during the shooting of 'Apocalypse Now'). He cleaned up his act back in the 1980s though, which he attributes to the renewal of his Catholic faith through the help of 'Badlands' director Terrence Malick. If only his son, Charlie, had received a similar revelation.

Rob Lowe

After seeing Rob Lowe play health-nut Chris Traeger on 'Parks and Recreation', it's hard to imagine the man ever had problems with sobriety. In reality though, the actor had issues with sex and substance addiction and went into rehab during the mid 90s. Lowe has remained sober for almost 25 years now, bringing him a lot closer to his 'Parks and Recreation' character than he was back in his heyday.
