Chris KleinChris Klein feels like the "luckiest guy alive" after winning his alcoholism battle.
 
The 33-year-old movie star admits he likes to remind himself how close he came to death before two DUI arrests and a jail stint brought him to his senses and prompted him to get help.
 
He tells People magazine, "I would have died, and I think about that every single day. It got to the point where I was a fragile shadow of the young man that came into this business. Today, I'm the luckiest guy alive."
 
Klein is currently celebrating 19 months of sobriety as he promotes "American Pie" sequel "American Reunion."
