Nick Stahl Checks Into Rehab (Report)
Nick Stahl, the actor who played John Connor in Terminator 3, has checked into rehab days after he was reported missing by his wife.
Stahl's wife, Rose Stahl, told TMZ that the two spoke on Saturday, and he said he entered treatment. The next morning, she confirmed with the facility that he was staying there.
Stahl, 32, resurfaced Friday in an email to friends, saying he was sorry and that he was headed to rehab, where he would be under the radar for 30 days. Not among the email recipients: Rose, who filed a missing persons report with the LAPD on Monday, saying that she last saw her husband on May 9.
In February, she filed papers expressing concerns that he had become involved with drugs. A previous TMZ report said Stahl was believed to have been a frequent visitor of the Skid Row area of Downtown Los Angeles and his wife thought drugs may have played a role in his disappearance.
"Now that he is safe, it's time to focus back on healing," she told People magazine of her husband, from whom she and their 2-year-old daughter have been separated for nine months.
"I gotta lotta hope," she said. "'How dark it is before the dawn.' I've chanted that a lot in my head. I find comfort in it."
Stahl’s other film credits include 2005’s Sin City; 2001’s In the Bedroom, opposite Sissy Spacek and Tom Wilkinson; and the 1998 war drama Thin Red Line, opposite Sean Penn and Nick Nolte.
Stahl's publicist did not respond to THR's request for comment.
