Stiller Took Time Off To Battle Workaholism

BEN STILLER took a five month hiatus last year (09) in an effort to beat his workaholism.
The funnyman admits he came to the realisation he was hooked on work after a busy period, which culminated with the filming of his latest movie Greenberg.
And he decided it was time to do nothing but spend time as a husband and father.
He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "The first part of getting rid of an addiction is acknowledging that you have it, and I acknowledge that I enjoy working. Anyone that's kicked heroin will tell you they enjoyed it until they realised it was screwing up their life. I haven't hit bottom yet, but I've gotten to a place where I realised it's out of balance, and I've adjusted.
"Last summer, I took five months off... and went away with my family, and it was great."
