John Goodman Opens Up About His Alcohol Battle
The former Roseanne star revealed all about his past booze issues during a Friday night TV appearance on The Late Show to promote his new play Waiting For Godot. He recalled he was "toasted pretty good" during a past appearance on the program - when he agreed to dive into a New York City fountain fully clothed.
The decade-old clip was shown, prompting the actor to quip, "Thank God it was before the YouTube.com," referencing the online network which hosts embarrassing clips of stars.
Calling his sobriety "one of the best things that ever happened," the newly-bald Goodman recalled the fountain incident, telling host David Letterman, "I almost got arrested; I was real belligerent."
At the height of his booze battle, Goodman recalled, "Hangovers, they were a luxury... I'd get the DTs (shakes). It was bad. I sweat less now."
Asked if he was truly an alcoholic, the actor stated, "I was to the point of alcoholism 30-35 years ago!"
