Comedian Robin Williams Checks into Rehab

Robin Williams has checked into rehab. The 62 year old comedian has struggled with substance abuse in the past and is said to be reconnecting with the 12-step program to maintain his sobriety. A publicist says Williams is recharging after working back to back projects. Williams recently starred in the CBS series "The Crazy Ones."
He also has several movies coming up, including "Boulevard," a new "Night at the Museum" installment and a sequel to "Mrs. Doubtfire."

At the box office, a new crime thriller hits heaters today.
"Deliver Us from Evil" stars Eric Bana as a New York city police officer investigating supernatural forces. The movie is based on that police officer's real life cases.

What's more exciting than getting a personal response from your favorite star? Fans took it to Twitter Tuesday to hear from Robin Thicke, but the Q and A session backfired. He agreed to answer any questions they had, but most were curious about his public attempts to get his wife Paula Patton back. For example,one person tweeted "do you think Tim Howard can save your marriage?" Thicke tweeted "I'm a big boy, I can handle it." Robin Thicke and Paula Patton separated back in February.
