It's no secret that several celebrities have struggled with addiction, but many famous actors, actresses, and musicians were raised by parents who were addicted to drugs and alcohol. Some of these celebrities live sober lives because of the substance abuse that they witnessed growing up, while others were propelled into their own addictions.

In 2004, he was arrested for DUI. Charlize Theron's father was an abusive alcoholic. Her mother killed her father in self-defense when Theron was a teen.

Several famous men also grew-up with addicted parents. ´╗┐Charlie Sheen is known to have struggled with addiction, but his father, Martin Sheen, struggled with alcoholism. Eminem has stated that his mother abused prescription drugs. Other famous people who are the children of addicts include Halle Berry, Shia LaBeouf, and Kelly Osbourne.
