BEN AFFLECK was so wrecked by a marathon cocaine and booze binge, he landed up in rehab - with the help of pal CHARLIE SHEEN.
The PEARL HARBOR (2001) hunk shocked fans around the globe with his admission of alcoholism, but according to America's NATIONAL ENQUIRER the fast-living actor indulged in gambling and drug benders as well.
And, the magazine claims, reformed party animal Sheen took one look at the drunken, drugged-out Affleck and talked the Oscar- winning actor into checking into PROMISES, the same facility where he went for rehab.
A pal tells the mag, "Ben was out of his mind on booze and cocaine. Charlie Sheen saved Ben's life - no doubt about it. " (WNWCNE/NFA)
