Actor Verne Troyer who played in the Austin Power movies as (mini-me) has been hospitalized as he battles alcohol addiction.

Last week Troyer checked himself into the San Fernando Valley, Calif., hospital.

Troyer has a long history with alcohol addiction. He told the gossip site that he was going to check himself into rehab.

“With your help, I got this,” he said in a message to his fans, which was relayed by TMZ.

Back in 2005 Troyer almost died from alcohol poisoning.

This is not the actors first time entering rehab, as he has entered on multiple occasions in the past.
