British funnyman Russell Brand has made many headlines over the years and it is fair to say that they have not always been for the right reasons, although it does seem like he has put those darker days behind him and is a much more chilled out and relaxed star. There was a time when Russell was doing some very hard drugs but the star has been clean for around 15 years now, although he does still remember those dark days.
Russell Brand has been talking about those darker days and how bad his heroin habit was, even going as far as to recall an incident when he was doing heroin with a big name music star, although he would not give the name of the star. Russell even went on to talk about the final years of his heroin use, admitting that he found himself getting arrested more and more.
Brand revealed, "I found myself in a situation with a very famous musician - and I found myself cooking up, sitting there with that spoon and that stayed with me for a while after. Pivotal points and low points come quite easy to me. I was always getting into trouble with the police and medical problems. Within my last year of heroin use, I was getting arrested a lot."
These days, Russell Brand is a much more settled person and has been enjoying his new life as a family man, married to the beautiful Laura Gallacher, with whom he has a beautiful 11 month old daughter named Mabel. It is so good to see Russell so happy and we look forward to seeing more of the talented star on the big screen in the future.
