Russell Brand Goes Barefoot, Admits He’d Rather Be An Addict [PHOTOS]
The British funnyman was spotted in Los Angeles enjoying a green juice and appreciating all that nature had to offer. I’m very impressed by his ability to walk around barefoot. That would just give my OCD some major anxiety.
Russell made headlines this weekend when he confessed that he misses his old life as a heroin addict. In a new BBC documentary titled Russell Brand: From Addiction to Recovery, Russell watched some footage of his 20-year-old self strung out on heroin. What did Russell have to say about those days?
As he was sitting in London’s Savoy Hotel watching himself he said, “This is when you know it’s a disease. It doesn’t matter that I was sat in that flat in Hackney and now I’m in the Savoy. I’m jealous of me then.”
Russell has been clean for the past 10 years after a 12 week stint in rehab, but admits he’d rather have that life even now. “It doesn’t make a difference to me. The money, the fame, the power, the sex, the women — none of it. I’d rather be a drug addict.” Hopefully new girlfriend Isabella Brewster helps him through the tough times.
