On a video you can see that 47-year-old Ben had difficulty walking when he left the party. It also shows how the actor had to lean on a car so as not to fall while he was photographed with a fan. Ben has been struggling with an alcohol problem for years and has been treated from that several times. Earlier this year, the actor completed another 40-day stay in a rehab clinic.
