Hopper Penn is sharing his story.

In a new interview with ES magazine, the 23-year-old not only opens up about struggling with a crystal meth addiction, but also how his father Sean Penn helped him recover.

After growing up splitting time between his father and mother, House of Cards star Robin Wright, the young actor reveals he nearly ended up on the streets after getting hooked into drugs after falling into the "wrong crowd."

He says:

"I was pretty bad. I just got caught a lot doing stuff, you know? Whether it was my parents or the cops. I was doing a lot of stuff, but meth was the main one that brought me down."

Eventually, it was an ultimatum from his famous dad that helped him decide to get his act together.

Yep, Sean Penn Almost Named His Son After His Favorite Food — Steak!

Sean Penn and Hopper Penn

This is just… too much.

Sean Penn loves red meat so much, he almost named his son Steak. We can't make this up.

Fortunately, the actor's son with ex Robin Wright lucked out with the name Hopper Penn. That was a close one!

He's not a piece of meat, Sean! LOL!

In the 22-year-old's latest spread with Interview magazine, he revealed:

"My dad wanted to name me Steak, the food, because he loves it so much. But my mom was never going to go for it. What they told me is that I hopped in her stomach, I didn't kick, so they went with that."

Still weird reasoning, but whatevs. At least he's not a dead cow?

Turns out, his name is also a tribute to one of Poppa Penn's idols, Dennis Hopper from Easy Rider.

Okay, okay — now we're all on board!

Although Sean couldn't get away with naming his son after his favorite food, the 55-year-old was able to convince Hopper to follow in his acting footsteps.

The El Lay native told the mag he was initially interested in working behind the scenes, but his dad arranged otherwise:

"Two and a half years ago, my dad was working on his movie called The Last Face, and I asked if I could PA for it. He said, 'No, you're going to act in it.' I said no, because I'm very shy; I didn't know how to act. He said, 'Well, you'll get paid.' So I was like, 'I'm on board.' After the first day, I fell in love with it."

Ah, the joys and benefits of being a celebrity kid! We're not jealous, you are!

But when asked if he ever is worried about measuring up to his talented parents, he stayed humble:

"My dad is a really good actor, and there are a lot of sh*tty actors, and I definitely think I'm one of them."

You can be the judge of that by catching Hopper alongside Brad Pitt in Netflix's War Machine.

Congrats, kid (on the name and the gigs)!

On, off, on, and now off again!

Robin Wright and Ben Foster have broken up — again — meaning their engagement has been called off!

The Princess Bride and House of Cards stars apparently broke it off a few months ago, although it's only now coming to light this weekend.

The two had met on the set of Rampart in 2011 and began dating a few months later before their first engagement, confirmed in January 2014, and then their first breakup in November of that year.

This would've been Foster's first marriage, and the third for Wright. She has previously been married to soap opera star Dane Witherspoon, as well as Sean Penn, who is the father of her children Dylan and Hopper.

We knew the Penn family had a history of violent encounters with paparazzi, but this is ridiculous!

An unlucky cameraman asked acclaimed actor Sean Penn questions today as he was entering a Beverly Hills medical building, and the Dead Man Walking star strolled on past without word, response, or incident!

That's not unusual, the Pap gets ignored all the time!

Unfortunately, Sean's 19-year-old son was less forgiving of the harmless questioning!

Young Hopper Penn stormed across the street and

Hopper Penn on dirt bike

What a cutie!

Hopper Penn looks like a spitting image of his dad, Jeff Spicoli Sean Penn, as he posed for a picture while riding his dirt bike on Tuesday in El Lay.

It's nice to see that despite his celeb parents, the 17-year-old looks like he's just a normal kid out and about enjoying his youth.

Now where's your helmet, young man?
