Actor and comedian Russell Brand is getting ready to show the world what he was like at his lowest of lows!
In a shocking new documentary about his drug addiction, Russell can be seen smoking heroin in his 20s and talking about some of his DARKEST times.
However, although he's now sober, it seems as though Brand STILL finds himself longing for his old drug-addicted life!
"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. 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."
Of course, Russell still remembers the horrible consequences of his addiction, which caused him to lose many friends, family members as well as himself.
Brand went on to say:
"You'll take it [heroin] until it takes your life. It'll take everything until the last thing and you'll gladly give it that rather than give up drugs."
Russell did eventually go to rehab for 12 weeks in 2002 to get clean and we hope he stays on the straight and narrow!
The doc, Russell Brand: From Addiction to Recovery, is scheduled to air in the UK later this month.
Stay clean, Russell!
