In new interview with Grazia, Timothy, who revealed that he's had his own battle against the bottle, said that he attributes many of his sons' issues, specifically Ben's well-documented issues with alcohol, to the gilded facade of Tinsel Town.
Not mincing words, Timothy explained to the magazine, "Hollywood is a disgusting place. I think that's been a major factor in Ben's drinking. You're kind of forced to develop a persona that is hard to shed and go home to your family. It affects your whole life. I think that's one of the dangers of the film industry."
