'Terminator' actor Stahl reportedly entering rehab

Actor Nick Stahl, who played John Connor in "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" and was reported missing by his wife last week, has told friends he is entering a rehab facility, his wife tells PEOPLE.com.

Rose Stahl said she was "relieved" but also "skeptical" that the actor was actually entering rehab, according to the PEOPLE report.

Stahl's wife had reported him missing last Monday.

Police said Stahl had been frequenting Los Angeles' skid row and officers on that beat had been told to be on the alert for him, according to a Los Angeles Times report.

      Had no idea he was in Terminator 3. I remember him as a kid in the Mel Gibson movie The Man without a Face.

    @ John, how do you equate being in a rehab facility to being a decent person?
    Have you ever done any kind of substance?
    Probably! Furthermore, you probably are doing it right now. Moron!

    There is nothing wrong with going to rehab. He has looked his demons in the face and realized he needs some help. It's very similar to venting your frustrations to your friends or significant other, but on a higher level. Money or celebrity doesn't make you immune to everything.

    If he is frequenting skid row, its crack or heroine he is using. Disappearing while on a binge is common. Drug use or addiction to drugs isn't a reflection of your character but a reflection at an inadequate tool system to deal with life's problems, upsets or past trauma. Help and support are needed for the very hard road of recovery. I wish much support, introspection and relief of thing that boggle......all the best to you and your family.

      I agree.....But this article is of no interest to anyone except maybe friends and family. I certainly don't remember him in T-3.

      Anna very nice piece, its saddening to see such lack of compassion in times such as were in. Being one who has danced with the DEVIL for half of my life, and turned it over to a better way, I to wish him the best and for his family,until you have been in those shoes dont judge ????

    GREAT actor. If you haven't seen Bully or the HBO series Carnival, well......you're stupid and missing out. Get well, Stahl.

    it's people like this who destroy America.We spend countless dollars,time and energy trying to rehab people who don't care about themselves or society.They are a blight on the American dream.If all the junkies and their suppliers dropped dead tomorrow,imagine how much better our society would be.

      With a comment like that, I think we would be much better off if you were the one who dropped dead.

    Stahl: I'm not getting any work. I need some promotion.
    Agent: Rehab.
    Stahl: Are you kidding? For what?
    Agent: Pools, cute nurses, palm trees and great food served at your feet.
    Stahl: Should I pack light?

    Eric, what do you mean *WE spend?* I dont believe anyone was asking for you to spend a dime, stop being so selfish. Addiction is a disease and we should show some compassion, just as we would any other disease.

    Good for him. Now that the kindergarteners here have finished having their yuck yucks, maybe the so-called press will leave him to get well.
