The Gone Girl star reflected on his Halloween party relapse in October 2019 during an appearance on Good Morning America in February 2020. “I did watch some of it, although not the whole, whole thing.

I don’t have any more room for failure of that kind.” He added that he’s doing his “very, very best” to stay healthy.Back to top
