TMZ broke this news about the actor, quoting sources who say his problem started in 2006 while filming action scenes for 300.

Butler reportedly responded to the pain triggered by the physical demands of that movie by popping pills, a problem that grew worse in December when he was injured in a surfing accident while shooting Of Men and Mavericks.

He entered the well-known treatment facility three weeks ago, with insiders also claiming cocaine played a small role in Butler's struggles.

We wish the action star a full recovery and really hope he stays away from drugs and Real Housewives going forward.
