8. Drugs

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the Dallas Buyers Club actor revealed that he used to do a lot of drugs in high school and he got into a lot of trouble. “I did them, lots of them. A lot of them were really fun. There are just those few that tend to kick you in the ass. I guess at some point, too, there’s a decision: Is this going to be my life? I made a choice to pursue other dreams. I guess that’s just the kind of f–ked thing about a lot of drugs: The opportunity cost is too high. Some drugs are incredible, but the risk versus reward is out of line. I just saw too many examples of what not to do,” he said.

7. Post-Apocalyptic Dreams

The Oscar-winning actor claims that he has really wild dreams that sound almost nightmarish. “I have the craziest post-apocalyptic dreams,” he told Rolling Stone. “It’s insane. Things out of science fiction books. Or I’m flying or something over a city. The wildest dreams. Hyper-real dreams.” These dreams helped him inspire the songs on his band Thirty Seconds to Mars’ first album.
