Jason Bateman's journey from addiction to Emmy Award winner

Bateman began his Hollywood journey pretty early on and gained attention when he appeared as James Cooper in 'Little House on the Prairie' and later also earned the title of a teen idol in the 1980s role as David Hogan on 'The Hogan Family'. From there, the actor has come a long way and his work on the hit show 'Arrested Development' saw him garner much fame along with a Golden Globe as well as a Satellite award. But although things were great on the professional front, his personal life suffered due to addiction. Throughout the 1990s the actor had given into drugs and alcohol which soon cut into his life when he married Amanda Anka in 2001. His partying ways didn't do well for his relationship, which is when the actor turned his life around. Leaving his old habits behind, the actor went sober and has been ever since and instead indulges in health-related activities such as cycling and running.

From comedic roles to that of a serious one, the actor even put on the directing hat for the hit Netflix show and it paid off. He won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series in 2019 for his directing of 'Ozark' as well as two Screen Actors Guild Awards for his performance. His winning streak may continue as he returns for the final season of the crime drama, which drops very soon.
