Ben Affleck Described ‘Bad Experience’ With Marijuana As A Teenager
Ben Affleck is revealing his past after explaining his ‘bad experience’ with marijuana as a teenager.
The 48-year-old Batman actor shares details about his life in the Alright, Alright, Alright: The Oral History of Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused book and opens up about his wacky-backy smoking experience.
He explained, “I had a bad experience with marijuana at 15. I had a dissociative panic attack. So I only smoked weed if everyone else was smoking and I had to sort of Bill Clinton it and fake it. I didn’t really like marijuana.
I also wasn’t a very heavy drinker then. I became an alcoholic much much later and I’m in recovery now, so that was a whole different time. I was a little nervous, like should we be drinking before we’re working tomorrow? Some people were actually drinking and stoned at work,”
Talking about other public figures going to shooting ranges, Affleck says, “Texas had extremely lax gun laws and most of us came from states where it was next to impossible to buy guns and part of the newfound freedom being down there was a bunch of us bought guns and went shooting at ranges on weekends, which seemed fun and innocent at the time, but give the subsequent tragedies with young people and guns, it makes me uncomfortable to remember.”
