In light of new American Idol judge Steven Tyler’s sobriety (and all the new goings-on he’s able to partake in thanks to that sobriety, which he recently discussed with Howard Stern), I thought I’d pass along an interesting article I ran across a few days ago about celebrities and sobriety for some light weekend reading.

The ladies over at The Frisky have compiled a list of 10 celebrities who’ve talked publicly about their sobriety.

Some of the names were expected (Robert Downey Jr., Eminem, and Jack Osbourne) and some were kind of surprising to me (for example, I had no idea Tim McGraw used to be quite the party animal or that, until 1991, Glee‘s Jane Lynch was “drunk on a daily basis and felt permanently hung over”).

Head on over to The Frisky to check it out: 10 Celebrities Talk About Their Sobriety
