American Reunion's Chris Klein talks about alcoholism



tbd-chrisklein032912.jpgJust in time for American Reunion, actor Chris Klein is speaking out about why he fell apart after starring in Election and American Pie -- his devastating alcohol problem -- and how he overcame it. Don't be sad, it's a happy tale!

"I would have died, and I think about that every single day," the 33-year-old Nebraska boy tells People. "It got to the point where I was a fragile shadow of the young man that came into this business. Today, I'm the luckiest guy alive."

He was arrested for two DUIs and served a four-day jail sentence in California, but he's back, and he's 19 months sober. So now that we know Oz is okay, we just have to find out what Mena Suvari has been up to, besides making straight-to-video remakes of Day of the Dead.
