Adam Shankman Checks Into Rehab

Adam Shankman, who directed Hairspray with Zac Efron and Glee episodes with Cory Monteith has checked himself into rehab. Adam and Zac Efron are best friends. I think it is really interesting that Adam checked himself into rehab at this point in time. Zac has been struggling with his own addictions and the people around Adam have been clamoring for Adam to get sober because right now it is just a group of people who get hammered every night and no one is getting better. One of the group needs to get sober and then stay away from the rest of the group until they get sober. There was one recent movie that Adam directed that just turned into a mess because of all the drugs and booze he and a group of people on the movie were doing. It was jaw dropping. They were working at night and then staying up all the next day partying and while some of the actors stayed out of it, there were several, including several of the young ones and one I hate that just partied until they couldn't stand and the final product of the movie shows.

Rock of Ages?

I have no real comment about the content of this posting. I just want to point out how Classic Enty this crazy run-on paragraph is - love you, big guy :-)!!

Ryan said...

Has to be Rock of Ages. I didn't realize we could blame drugs on that terrible flick. I figured it was just inherently terrible all on it's own.

Frufra said...

The one he hates = Alec Baldwin? (assuming it was Rock of Ages)

Wasn't Julianne Hough in that also? Enty hate is strong with that one as well.

Henriette said...

So who was the sober one? Russell Brandt?

Frufra said...

I'm thinking Tom Cruise wasn't involved in the partying either.

Henriette said...

I forgot Cruise was in that mess.

zac and adam are best friends?

Henriette said...

If it's Rock of Ages, let's see who could be the players with the director:

Alec Baldwin=drunk on his ass
CZJ=coke head and drunk
Mary J.Blige=she was a druggie/alchty for a bit
that guy with Hough=druggie
Hough=druggie

The sober ones would have been Cruise and Brandt then.

Cruise was actually fantastic in that movie - one of my favorite underrated performances. The other being Eddie Murphy in 'Bowfinger'.

SEAN (The Jeep Guy) said...

So a 50 year old openly gay man is Zac's best friend and co-worker/boss?

S.joy said...

@SEAN our thoughts are on the same page... I find that interesting and it's pretty much all I took from this post.

Seven of Eleven said...

@SEAN and @S.joy, I was thinking the same thing! Isn't Zac Efron some former teen heartthrob?

Still haven't seen Rock of Ages - any good?

Desiree said...

@ Seven...what are you alluding to? Was there a blind?

Nutty_Flavor said...

@SEVEN, no it's an awful film. Hough and her vapid male co-star are like a vaccuum in the center of it. But Cruise is great as the (nonviolent) Axl Rose-type of character, a lonely superstar.

__-__=__ said...

I bet this answers many, many blinds. TC for the sober one. Not buying that Brand is sober.

Wendy Rene said...

Cruise nailed that part in Rock of Ages. I can't think of another actor who would've done any better.

Eros said...

Oh this is really sad. I really like adam. He is hiLARIOUS. I only know him from his judging days on sytycd days and he was a bright shining hilarious light on that show. Someone needs to smack him, shake him up ..

Renoblondee said...

Love him on sytycd. Hope he gets well.
I also find that friendship odd.

Susan said...

Yes. I hope their are some Rock of Ages reveals today.

VERY interesting that ZE's bestie is a middle-aged gay dude. Agree!

Well, I hope the guy gets better. Amazing how it seems a director has the world at his fingertips and parties it away. Rock of Ages has an all-star cast. That film coulda been HUGE. I really want to see it for shits and giggles.

S.joy said...

Seven and Susan Yeah I was surprised to read that! I had no clue they were so close.. I'm learning so much about Zach Efron these days lol

Susan said...

^there are! Eep. My husband is traveling back home today during snow, so I am so distracted. Sorry, grammar police!

Seven of Eleven said...

LOL @ Susan! I think we're harder on ourselves and Entern for grammar mistakes than each other. Hope your husband gets home safely!

Thanks, @Nutty. I hate watching a movie that's all hyped and then find out it's terrible. For some reason, it escaped me that Hough was in it - I've never seen a movie of hers and always thought of her as just a reality person who dated Ryan Seacrest and liked Crazy Eyes.

@S.joy, Shankman's twitter describes himself as "all around immature nice guy". He does seem like a nice guy, though, most of his tweets are about charity work or his friends.

Violet said...

No matter how much I read Hollywood gossip blogs I'm always shocked when someone turns out to be another addict. He seemed to be quite friendly with Cory - at least he suggested he spoke to him shortly before Cory died and said that he'd seemed really well. Always wonder whether something like what happened to Cory (which will never not be sad) prompts addicted friends to do something to stop the same thing happening to them.

D Brown said...

My only problem with Rock of Ages is that Tom Cruise has a reputation as (a) being utterly professional and (b) highly controlling. I simply can't see him letting a director of his movie spiral out of control and ruin the film.

TalksTooMuch said...

Yes, Rock of Ages was horrific, was so bummed, that was ALL my music. Tom Cruise was so good, he had such presence and just made it really obvious that no-one else could act. Or sing, for the love of Mike

FS said...

Hmmm somewhere in the last year or two I learned something odd about Adam Shankman that put a bad taste in my mouth about him and now I cannot remember what it was or where I saw it. It might have been this site, or the comments on this site. I wish I could remember what it was. It might have been casting couch type of info. Argh. Lemme look around a bit.

FlirtyChick74 said...

@SEAN: I was coming here to say the same thing. +1

cat said...

ZE hangs with a sad group of people, who seem to be a danger to each other. I see Rob Pattinson just traveled to London. I hope he is not a part of the drug scene.

Gabi said...

I didn't mind Rock of Ages, you just had to accept it was a giant p*ss take!

NaughtyNurse said...

I couldn't bring myself to see Rock of Ages, because the Broadway musical was truly the best, most fun night my husband and I had experienced in a looooong time. Such a great show!
