This A list mostly movie actor spent the better part of two years drunk and on pills. He said it was research. It was in a way, but it was also an excuse for him to tune out his significant other and his child(ren) and the responsibilities which he has always hated. If it was up to him he would just live like his hero and people would come to him and pay their respects. When he was wasted for two years he actually told people that and they were fortunate to get to spend time with him and that they were seeing a living legend. Yeah, kind of like the Goopster except she rarely drinks, showers more and doesn't shoot off guns in the middle of houses.
