Amber Valletta is revealing a past history of addition to drugs and alcohol. During a recent motivational appearance for the website MindBodyGreen, the 40-year-old actress and model gave an emotional speech about her daily struggle to stay sober. She revealed that her struggle with substance abuse started at age eight.

Valletta finally decided to get sober at age 25. "Not because I had the willpower, but because I didn't want to die," she revealed. "And because I really believed there had to be something more than what I was doing."
