Adam Shankman Talked Career Anxiety Just Hours Before Rehab

Madison Vanderberg

Hairspray and A Walk to Remember director and “So You Think You Can Dance” judge/choreographer Adam Shankman has just checked into rehab.

It’s unclear exactly WHAT he’s in rehab for, whether it’s drugs, alcohol, or some other form of addiction, but what he told Hollyscoop just hours before he checked into rehab has shed some light on WHY he needs treatment.

Adam’s rep announced that on Monday he had checked into rehab, but on Sunday night he attended the TrevorLive L.A. event in Hollywood.

We chatted with the director and asked him what his New Year’s resolution was.

His answer is incredibly revealing in light of his recent rehab stint.

“I think my new years resolution this year is to take a step back and breathe a lot more, slow down, make more careful decisions, and not feel the pressure of achieving, achieving, working, working,” he told us. “I think that I may have hit a little bit of a threshold on that and I think it’s time for me to just slow down.”

Just 12 hours after making that statement he checked into rehab.

We wish Adam the best!
