Nick Stahl blames stress for hospitalisation

Troubled actor Nick Stahl has been released from hospital after he was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold for "stress" earlier this month (Jun13).

The Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines star, who has struggled with drugs and alcohol abuse in the past, was admitted to a medical center in Los Angeles on 18 June (13) on a 5150 order, which allows doctors to hold a person deemed a danger to himself or others.

The 33-year-old actor has now been released from hospital and he reveals stress was behind his troubles, telling TMZ.com, "(My recovery is) going good. It's a process... It was stress. It was life problems, just some stress and it was a little overblown..."

However, Stahl insists he feels grateful for the intervention, adding, "It was helpful... Things seems to be (looking up) and I'm just grateful."
