Bogdanovich: 'O'neal Will Recover From Drug Troubles'

LATEST: Actress TATUM O'NEAL will "pull through" her recent drug troubles, according to director PETER BOGDANOVICH.
The Oscar-winning former child star - who chronicled her recovery from a heroin addiction in her 2004 book A Paper Life - was spotted by a narcotics team exchanging money with a man three blocks from her home in the Big Apple earlier this week (begs02Jun08).
The 44-tear-old was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanour.
But Bogdanovich - who directed her in her Oscar winning turn in Paper Moon - is adamant she will bounce back.
He tells People.com, "She said she was clean and happy to be doing the show (Rescue Me).
"She's a strong woman and has been through a lot. She's a good girl. She's had some tough breaks."
"I'm sure she can (recover). She has a strong spirituality. She should pull out of it."
