Emile Hirsch Checks Into Rehab


Emile Hirsch has checked into a rehab clinic to battle alcohol addiction after he allegedly attacked a woman while drunk last month.

On Thursday, the Into the Wild star was charged with third degree felony aggravated assault and misdemeanour intoxication for allegedly assaulting Paramount Pictures executive Daniele Bernfeld at a Sundance Film Festival party in Utah in January.

The 29-year-old actor was heavily intoxicated during the incident and is now addressing his alcohol issues in rehab after checking himself into a clinic in the days after the bust-up.

Hirsch’s spokesman Robert Offer tells, “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.”

Hirsch is due back in court on March 16.
