Out on the TV talk show circuit promoting his latest (and Shreveport / Bossier filmed) movie, 'Olympus Has Fallen', star Aaron Eckhart has joked - and spoken seriously - about his formerly wild ways.

"Yeah, I'm sober," the man who plays the President in 'Olympus' told Chelsea Handler. "Sober for eight or nine years. It changed my life."

But then he joked, "But I lost all my friends and now I never go out,"

See the whole interview here, and don't forget, 'Olympus has Fallen', starring Eckhart, Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd premieres nationwide tomorrow!
