Jack Black: I’ve Had a Cocaine Addiction Since I was 14


Jack Black reveals he battled a serious cocaine addiction since he was 14 years old.

Jack Black was only 14 years old when he became addicted to cocaine. Recently, the actor opened up about his troubled youth and revealed he “cried like a baby” when he admitted to his school therapist about the drug addiction.

Jack Black, who is currently promoting his new movie, Goosebumps which filmed in Atlanta, Georgia,revealed that for over 32 years he has had a really bad addiction to cocaine. As times progressed, things got worse and the actor admitted to even stealing from his own mother to get money for the booger sugar. Thankfully, Jack Black was able to talk to his school therapist about his addiction which helped him become sober.

“I was having a lot of troubles with cocaine … I was hanging out with some pretty rough characters,” he continued to say. “I was scared to go to school [because] one of them wanted to kill me. I wanted to get out of there.” Jack’s parents heard his cry for help and enrolled him in Poseidon, a school for troubled youths in the Los Angeles area. Imagine if Jack didn’t transfer schools or meet the school therapist that helped him become sober. He wouldn’t have been able to discover his love for acting!

Jack Black also touched on his latest movie Goosebumps, saying “The books are really funny and scary and exciting and we just wanted the movie to be as awesome and cool as the book series was and I think we cracked the code,” he told Good Morning America.

Jack Black will play R.L. Stine, whose creatures come to life forcing a group of kids to stop them.
