Jeremy Jackson, who played David Hasselhoff's son on Baywatch, has revealed his dark past that forced him into the upcoming season of VH1's Celebrity Rehab.
The former child star recently explained to Access Hollywood that he became so obsessed with working out to prepare for acting roles, he stopped going to auditions entirely to focus on his physique!
His addiction to his body image became so bad that he began taking drugs farmers give to their cattle before they slaughter them to build up his muscles!
Yuck! You know you're in trouble when you're taking drugs used to beef up cows!
While opening up about his addiction, he recently said:
"I just got distracted. I got pulled into it and it became all about diet and body image and I stopped doing the things that were important to me, and that's when it became very unhealthy for me… I was unhappy."
We're so sorry to hear about all that, but we're glad he's getting or got the help he needed.
While we're not sure Jeremy will ever get his acting career up and running again, he has expressed interest in entering "physique competition" that tests for illegal drugs and steroids.
Good luck, Jeremy! We hope you stay clean!
