    Burt Reynolds and His Mustache Ride Into Rehab

    Burt Reynolds, Dukes of Hazard Warner Bros. Pictures

    UPDATE: He came, he saw, he rehabbed. Burt Reynolds' manager confirms that the actor spent 30 days in a rehab facility, but has since been released and is continuing his sober life at home.

    There's no word on when the actor entered or was released from treatment.

    Burt Reynolds has checked himself into the best little sober house in...well, Florida, apparently.

    "After a recent back surgery, Mr. Reynolds felt like he was going through hell and after a while, realized he was a prisoner of prescription pain pills," his rep tells E! News. "He checked himself into rehab in order to regain control of his life."

    The news comes after the National Enquirer published a photo of the star supposedly on the grounds of the Hanley Center, a Florida-based nonprofit rehab facility.

    "Mr. Reynolds hopes his story will help others in a similar situation," his rep said. "He hopes they will not try to solve the problem by themselves, but realize that sometimes it is too tough to do on their own and they should seek help, as he did."
