Mike Tyson was a full fledged coke head when he was offered a role playing himself in the movie “The Hangover”. Mike took the role with intentions of bootlegging the movie to sell on 42nd street. His plans were thwarted by the film’s runaway success.
Mike said in a recent interview,
“I was doing that to supply my drug habit… I said, ‘Wow, This is going to be really good. We’re going to sell this stuff on 42nd Street on bootleg and make a lot of money.’ This is my best thinking on drugs… It wasn’t that way. It was an international success.”
