Countless celebrities say that fame brings unmitigated stress which turns them to drinks, painkillers and other drugs as an escape from reality.

Today he enjoys immense success and was the top earning actor in 2013.

 my favorite, heroin”. A mother of five, she still looks stunning today.
  5. Samuel L Jackson- He overdosed three times on heroin. He told his biographer Jeff Hudson, “The third time I OD’d on heroin I quit
 the drug completely. It’s too dangerous, I was mad. I was crazed. I was not happy with who I was”.

  10. P!NK- The acclaimed rock star is known for her reckless behavior. She said “Heroin is a horrible thing. I’ve seen first hand what it can do to people and it’s not pretty.
