Mewes Credits Affleck With Recovery

Recovering drug addict JASON MEWES has heaped praise on MALLRATS co-star BEN AFFLECK for helping him when he was at an all-time low. Mewes called Affleck and asked for help when he was hooked on heroin back in 2000 and his movie star pal not only funded his recovery, he found him work. The JAY AND SILENT BOB star, who has been clean and sober since his court-imposed rehab in 2001, says, "When I needed help he definitely helped me out. As a matter of fact, he paid for one of my rehabs." Affleck and the pair's mutual pal KEVIN SMITH have continued to support Mewes in his recovery - Smith asked him to revive his Jay character for the upcoming CLERKS sequel and Affleck offered his pal work in his directorial debut GONE BABY GONE.
