Tom Hanks Addresses Son Chet's Battle with Drugs

Tom Hanks has opened up about his son Chet‘s battle with addiction, including cocaine and crack use, which he recently addressed in a series of emotional Instagram videos.

“As a parent, you love your kids unconditionally. You support them every step of the way,” the 59-year-old actor told ET about his 25-year-old son.”You got to applaud the bravery and honesty when it actually comes out of your own house.”

“I just want to let you all know, I’ve been in rehab … and I’m doing pretty damn good,” Chet said in his Instagram post last week.

    It’s bad enough for any family to go through a loved one’s drug addiction, but having to do it in the public eye must be horrible. God Bless to Mr. & Mrs. Hanks, and all involved in trying to get Chet better.
