Who knew Benicio del Toro was a do-gooder? The New York Post's Page Six reports the sexy boricua showed up at the city's Gay Men's Health Crisis Center on Friday, to support a recovering methamphetamine addict at a 12-step meeting. According to the newspaper's source, Benicio told the meeting's participants, "Hi, my name is Benicio. I am not an addict, and I am not gay. I am here to support my friend." The source dished: "Benicio is a sponsor to a guy who looks a little bit like Patricia Arquette. They met when Benicio was doing research for his druggie role in Things We Lost in the Fire and kept in touch. Benicio is now his sponsor. But it's weird because usually sponsors are people who have been through the 12 steps and can coach you through them, not some guy who's just famous. But I guess it's sweet." Benicio's rep didn't return the paper's call for comment.
