Dennis Quaid confessed to Newsweek that he was once addicted to cocaine. The actor, who stars in the heartwarming Soul Surfer, revealed that the drug was even part of film budgets. He stated:
“Cocaine was even in the budgets of movies, thinly disguised. It was petty cash, you know. It was supplied, basically, on movie sets because everyone was doing it. People would make deals. Instead of having a cocktail, you’d have a line”.
Though this is disturbing, it took a lot for Dennis to open up. Hopefully, his honesty will bring about more awareness and inspire others to stand up to addiction.
