Just read this yesterday.
[quote] "After a nine-day booze binge in Britain, actor Michael Madsen was taken to a hospital and "held under the Common Law rules on mental health."
According to sources, Madsen was displaying out of control behavior at the Penventon Park Hotel in Cornwall, England where he was staying, including drinking two bottles of wine for breakfast and was later found unconscious at the entrance of the hotel.
A hospital worker says the "staff were shocked by the amount of booze he put away - it was like he was on a non-stop bender. He was mixing his drinks with pills, but no one knew what they were for. He angered some guests by urinating in the car park."
He’s even considered “a high-risk patient” and on “suicide watch.”[/quote]
This just sucks. I wish the guy was in a better place in his life. He’s so talented, actor, poet. Recently, he went thru bankruptcy. And that was probably a real stressful thing.
I just hope he gets better soon and back to making movies.
