In an interview with UK's Independent in April 2014, the American Beauty actor opened up about his past struggle with heroin and cocaine. 

"I came to Hollywood and I got caught up in all the glitz and glamour of the nightlife," the Arkansas-raised actor said in reference to his decade long drug bender. "All the stuff I had no idea about in Arkansas. In a way, it made me a little more prone to it. It was like looking behind the curtain. And I went behind the curtain and hung out."
