Jason Bateman’s journey from addiction to Emmy Award winner
Bateman started his Hollywood journey quite early and gained attention when he appeared as James Cooper in ‘Little House on the Prairie’ and went on to earn teen idol status as David Hogan starred in ‘The Hogan Family’ in the 1980s. From there, the actor came a long way and his work on the hit show ‘Arrested Development’ brought him big acclaim, as well as a Golden Globe as well as a Satellite award. But even though things were going well professionally, her personal life suffered because of the addiction. Throughout the 1990s, the actor had indulged in drugs and alcohol, which quickly turned his life upside down when he married Amanda Anka in 2001. His partying ways didn’t work out well for his relationship, that’s when the actor changed his life. Ditching his old habits, the actor got sober and has since been sober and instead indulges in health-related activities such as cycling and running.
The weather was good for Bateman who went on to an even more successful career in television and film, “Ozark” being one of them. From comedic to serious roles, the actor even put on the director’s hat for the hit Netflix show and it paid off. He won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series in 2019 for his direction of “Ozark” as well as two Screen Actors Guild Awards for his performance. His winning streak may continue as he returns for the crime drama’s final season, which drops very soon.
