Eminem Is Celebrating 10 Years of Sobriety

Quite the milestone. Eminem marked 10 years of sobriety by showing off his coin on Instagram.

“Celebrated my 10 years yesterday,” the “Love the Way You Lie” rapper, 45, captioned the photo on Saturday, April 21. The coin, which is given to Alcoholics Anonymous members when they’ve hit a milestone in their journey, featured a Roman numeral X on it along with the words “service,” “unity,” and “recovery.”

Rapper Royce Da 5’9 took to Twitter congratulate his mentor on Friday, April 20, on his accomplishment. “Happy sobriety birthday to my mentor @Eminem … Keep fighting the good fight homie … I love you for life,” he tweeted.

The 8 Mile actor, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, had nearly died from an accidental overdose in 2007. He opened up about his history with addiction in an interview with Men’s Journal in 2015. “In 2007, I overdosed on pills, and I went into the hospital,” he said at the time. “I was close to 230 pounds. I’m not sure how I got so big, but I have ideas. The coating on the Vicodin and the Valium I’d been taking for years leaves a hole in your stomach, so to avoid a stomachache, I was constantly eating — and eating badly.”

He said he figured out a way to stay clean by focusing on exercise. “When I got out of rehab, I needed to lose weight, but I also needed to figure out a way to function sober,” he added. “Unless I was blitzed out of my mind, I had trouble sleeping. So I started running. It gave me a natural endorphin high, but it also helped me sleep, so it was perfect. It’s easy to understand how people replace addiction with exercise. One addiction for another but one that’s good for them.”

The Grammy-winning rapper checked himself into rehab in 2008 and started the 12-step program. He previously wore a Sobriety Circle & Triangle Symbol necklace used by Alcoholic Anonymous during his performance at the Grammy Awards in 2011. He’s scheduled to take the stage at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Sunday, April 22

Emma Watson, Tom Felton and Matthew Lewis Have Mini ‘Harry Potter’ Reunion

No, you’re not dreaming! Nearly seventeen years after they starred alongside each other in the first Harry Potter movie, three of the film’s stars — Emma Watson, Tom Felton, and Matthew Lewis — reunited and gave fans all the feels.

Felton, who portrayed bad boy Draco Malfoy in the fantasy film series based on the books written by J. K. Rowling, took to Instagram on Monday, April 16, to share an adorable picture of himself with two of the other stars.

“School mates,” Felton captioned the pic of himself with Watson, who played beloved Hermione Granger, and Matthew Lewis, who took on the role of Neville Longbottom. Felton, 30, added the hashtag #hogwartsalumni, giving a nod to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The post, which came just one day after Watson celebrated her 28th birthday, was quick to garner the attention of avid fans of the books and movies, accumulating more than 691 thousand likes within the first three hours it was posted.

“My heart is full of joy,” one follower commented. Another gushed, “Omg this is the best thing I’ve seen all day.”

But many fans were quick to ask where Daniel Radcliffe, who portrayed Harry Potter himself, was at. “Where’s Harry???” one commenter added with the sad emoji. “We want an official reunion,” another chimed in.

And Harry Potter devotees weren’t the only ones to comment on the post. Lewis, 28, used one word to describe how the get-together made him feel. “Drunk,” he wrote.

The Harry Potter series consists of seven books and eight films: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001); Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002); Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004); Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005); Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix; Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009); and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, parts 1 and 2.
