Who says sober can’t be sexy? Stars like Cory Monteith and Eva Mendes prove that sober just may be the new definition of sexy!

Being in the spotlight can be tough and the constant pressure for celebrities to be perfect can sometimes be too much to handle. Whatever the reason, it could be growing up as a rebellious teenager or maybe struggling with weight issues, these celebrities checked into rehab and came back glowing from the inside out! 

So who makes the list of the successful celebrities to overcome their biggest challenges?

Drew Barrymore found a spot on the list when she entered rehab at the young age of 13 after becoming addicted to drugs and alcohol. Shockingly enough, Hollwood’s hunk, Ben Affleck also paid his dues in rehab after he realized he was an alcoholic. And you may not believe it but the friend he called for help was Charlie Sheen — talk about the pot calling the kettle black! 

Demi Lovato is the most recent success story as the singer left her tour late last year to enter a treatment facility. The 18-year-old singer was released from rehab during the spring of 2011 and appears to be in a much better place in her life.

Lovato recently released her new single, “Skyscraper” that has already climbed to the top of the charts. It has been only a few short months since the pop star left the program, but Demi has kept herself busy popping up all around town looking as happy as ever!
