Dr. Drew: ‘Angelina Jolie’s a Heroin Addict’

December 21st, 2010 // 145 Comments

Wait. What was I talking about? — Oh, right, Dr. Boobs.

With a new talk show about to debut on HLN, Dr. Drew needed to make a bunch of bold, headline grabbing statements, so here he is telling The Huffington Post that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are heading for a massive “meltdown” because she’s a drug addict and he’s an emotionless robot which apparently is the only possible explanation for leaving Jennifer Aniston. That has to be it:

Just add up a couple things. There’s no such thing as ‘I was a heroin addict.’ That doesn’t exist in nature. Something is going on with [her] addiction. Or she’s in recovery. And I don’t see any evidence that’s the case. So we’ve got one person who’s a heroin addict. Which is a chronic lifelong condition, period. We have another person who has said things like, “Well, Jennifer [Aniston] was into long-term relationships, that’s just her way of looking at things.” I mean, that demeaning attitude towards other people’s emotions. Now put those two people together and you have got a really volatile situation. And they’re constantly creating things to weld themselves together. Which is only going to serve to make a more nuclear eruption. There will be some sort of meltdown that will be phenomenal when it does happen.

So is Chelsea Handler having sex with Dr. Drew, too, or is Jennifer Aniston just giving him icejobs? Because I had a friend lose a penis that way and it’s nothing to joke about. That snowman’s still out there. Waiting…

    Get out?!

    • RandaI

      The perfect woman has a moderate drug addiction, mild eating disorder, and fake breasts. Angelina knows two out of three ain’t bad.

      • Nolga

        Heroin is easier to get in a 3rd world country than a loaf of bread… the poppy is the economy… literally the economy of very poor nations… where there are war lords that own miles and miles and thousands of miles of property… it is the national crop of many a poor nation… if your friend kicked… shake his hand like a lucky charm… no one kicks heroin… they substitute it with methodone programs and now oxycodone… a pharmaceutical… if your friend really levels with you at a level no one would normally share… I want if he come “out…” …he will admit to you he is on a daily regiment of either methadone… oxycodone… and/or valium… one (1) of the major quote “kick-backs” of heroin is “PARKINSON’S DISEASE.” If a rehabilitated heroin addict doesn’t get a valium prescription and doesn’t take valium with their methadone and/or oxycodone they get the shakes… the body generates at a rate of 1.34 to 1… in other words… if you have a history of any of the above combinations… heroin then methadone and/or oxycodone (with valium not a factor but a given) take your age and multiply it by 1.34… as Dr. Drew… Pinsky knows his stuff… Your friend had angel on his shoulder if he kicked it… there is no way with heroin… maybe cocaine… never heroin… there is always the aftermath of drug treatment… it is the most powerful… possessive and dangerous of all directives of the poppy…

        Umm no offense but a lot of your facts are wrong. I have never heard of a Heroin addict getting Parkinsons thats just the weirdest claim I have ever heard and completely unsupported by any scientific evidence. And recovering heroin addicts don’t get shakes. They may have spasms for the first week or two such as kicking their legs uncontrollably or cringing their necks hence the term kicking the habit but thats about it. Plus you get really cold and really hot depending on your enviroment. And you sweat a bunch. But again thats about it. Heroin withdrawal is painful no doubt but its not deadly. Alcohol addiction on the other hand is far worse in comparison. Alcohol withdrawal can cause seizures and death if not treated properly. Heroin is bad but its not as bad as people make it out to be. I know this because I am a recovering addict myself and let me just say it is possible to quit without methadone or other drug assisted therapy or even rehab. In my opinion Rehab clinics do not work for most people. Its just a place for you to make more connections in the drug world. Quitting just takes a strong will and a firm decision to change ones life.

    • testington

      Oh come on, she never lives in one place for more than a few weeks at a time. Like she has heroine dealers setup in every country in the world?

      And you can be a former heroine addict, my college roommate was a former heroine addict. he started it when he was 17 and kicked it after his 3rd rehab at 21. We lived together when he was 23 until he was 26 and he never relapsed or did any other drugs other than the occasional bong rip or two. W’re still in contact 3 years later and he is still clean and works a 9-5

      • She’s retarded rich. She could have heroine flown in from anywhere.

      • So she can fly in heroic women from anywhere, big deal. What about smack?

      • nahhhhh

        @testington, in the parlance of recovery, you’re never an “ex-”addict – you might not ever use again, but you still have a lot of learned behavior baggage, and not letting that bring you down is what working a recovery program (usually something 12-step based like NA) is about.

        Not everyone who abuses drugs, even the “bad” drugs like heroin (not that bad actually, but that’s a whole different topic), necessarily needs a recovery program. But other people can’t get by without them.

      • Facebook me

        Perhaps you need to learn how to spell? Or learn the difference between ‘herion’ and ‘herione’ two totally different words.

    • @nahhhh> That’s one thing I hate about the bullshit victim mentality of these programs. Sure, some people never truly recover, but some people do. The whole concept of never being beyond your addiction just teaches you that you are an addict, and if you believe you are an addict you will behave like an addict. Granted, this is mostly here-say, but I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if the recidivism rate for addicts is so high in part because they are trained to view themselves as permanently diseased (and addiction as a disease is an entirely different can of worms that I’m not going to get into here).

  4. Eric

    Dr. Drew: [thinking] “PLEASE Angelina or Brad come out and yell at me in print or on TV… PLEASE, I need the ratings.”

    • Actually, he doesn’t. Celebrity Rehab is getting good ratings, and he just signed a multi-million dollar contract for two more seasons.

      The only thing Drew needs is to get his two cents in, which he just did, apparently.

      • The only thing Drew needs to get is a clue and refresh himself on that part about “first do no harm”. Yeah, yeah, I know it refers to treatment of a patient, but in this case he doesn’t know shit about her medically, and it’s reckless and unprofessional of him to speculate in the media otherwise.
        Please, God, let her sue his multi-million-dollar-contact ass for slander in 3…2…1…

      • Eric

        And he doesn’t want MORE ratings? i.e. more money? Are you aware of the American way?

      • Blech

        I’m with ‘justifiable’. Ordinarily I’m OK with Jolie not giving a shit about what haters say about her. But f*ck it.

        Sue Dr. Drew, Angelina.

  5. xtina

    She’s above this shit.

    Angelina Jolie is a cool person with excellent taste and beauty. She rarely feels the need to get involved in the press with this shit unlike Jen or Drew. It’s not so hard to believe people are intrigued by her and try to explain away her mystique. Brad is an architecture nut. They’re both into design. They have commonalities…

    Brad upgraded from that boring dog.

  6. Judge Judy

    Angelina is a heroin addict, Brad is an emotionless enabler, and Dr. Drew is a a text book fame whore narcissist. So there!

  9. I agree with him completely, but I don’t get why he’s making such a blatant attention grab like this. Pointing out these two’s problems is like saying “hey folks, water is wet,” or “Katie Perry has big tits.” Yeah, thanks for the update.

    • Since when are Katie Parry’s tits big? What are they, a C? Call me when she gets to F, like me.

      • Jackie

        There’s a difference between big boobs and fat boobs. Either yours are storebought balloons (as in not actually breasts) or you are fat. Those are the only two ways to have an F cup. I wish fat chicks would stop taking pride in their flabby, soupy, watery, stretch-mark-laden, dinner-plate-areola-having tits. Then again, if they had any understanding of “quality not quantity” they wouldn’t be fat.

        Katy Perry’s tits ARE big considering that she’s not a house and they aren’t full of rubber.

      • @ Jackie> 1. No, you can have F cup breasts without being fat, but it looks REALLY frigging weird.

        2. The authenticity of Perry’s tits has never been confirmed to my satisfaction.

    • Mine are quite real & quite awesome as I know how to wear the proper bras to support them. And of course, if I weight over 100 pounds soaking wet I *must* be fat, right? Just because *I’m* not a heroin addict and actually have curves like a woman is supposed to doesn’t mean I’m fat. But thanks for playing.

      • Kerri

        i have to agree with Jackie on this one. I’m sure your boobs are fine in a bra if you’re wearing the proper one but an F? Come on. those are either sitting on your lap without a bra or will be one day very soon. sorry – anything bigger than a C is just, well, gross. i’m a b and trust me – wish i was a bit bigger but in no way shape or form do i wish i was an F. that actually frightens me.

  10. eel

    Damn her boobs look good in that dress. However I can’t stand her or Brad.I think she’s addicted to hoarding babies.

    Those that pyscho-analysis others needs help themselves. “Hocus pocus, change the focus.”

    Dr. Drew you are an asshat.

  13. Colin

    I like how people’s go-to thing against Angelina is “OMG she keeps adopting kids for attention!” Oh no, she’s taking kids from third world countries and giving them a life they could otherwise never obtain. That bitch.

    • Nikki

      You are a simple minded man aren’t you?

    • Fartblossum

      she’s not doing it out of love. she’s doing it to fill the void. the huge, bottomless void.

      • Hola

        Good thing the U.S. doesn’t have any starving children that need to be adopted. Yes….buy more babies from other countries. Screw our children!!

      • Anna

        That’s the attitude! No wonder other countries hate the conceited stupid American’s,

      • ilikesake

        Fartblossum, u act like you know Jolie. I agree with Colin. OMG everyone run away! Angelina is helping children and visiting 3rd world countries while making millions of dollars in donations!

      • Mr. Handsome

        What a wretched bitch she is. She used to do drugs and was in love with Bille Bob. What right did she have to enjoy live in her own way?
        And now she has matured and wants children and adopts children from poor countries. Pig. Yeah. Sure.
        And now I guess Brad Pitt is an ugly loser as well. Ok sure.

        You characters here are truly the pathetic ones. You amuse me.
        Please expire. No Don’t! I need something to laugh at!

  14. slappy magoo

    I’ll cop to being a pissy bitch about some things, but jeebus von christsein on a jumped up menorah shaped dildo, maybe Dr. Drew should avoid the petty gossip horseshit, even if his opinion is more learned than most of the a-holes blogging on Best Week Ever. It’s one thing to “try to aid addicted celebrities through the recovery process” whilst cameras are conveniently recording every second, but calling out megacelebs for their problems should be best left to Andy Kindler and Christian Finnegan – people who could use that day rate – and not a guy who a: has a steady well-paying gig and b: can flaunt that fancy pants Ph.D after his name.

  15. Grand Dragon

    That Dr. Drew is one smart motherfucker

  16. Jen

    Most unhappily married couples buy home furnishings to fill the void of emptiness. Brad and Angie buy children. Money is amazing

  17. It must have been too long since anyone pointed a microphone at Drew, and he panicked, so tossed out something so old and obvious that I’m pretty sure anyone WITHOUT a degree in medicine could have given the same interview.

    Once a junkie always a junkie? really? no shit? Angelina is batshit crazy? again…I’m floored. Brad is a narcissistic asshole…I’m choking on my own spit here, that’s how shocked I am.

    The thing I’m most surprised about is Drew giving an interview to the HuffPo. They’re literally the fine line between National Enquirer and real news.

    • adolf hitler

      youre literally an idiot who doesnt know how to use the word, “literally.” and youre an idiot, and a retard. shut the fuck up.

      • ah I get it. You’re one of those grammar nazis who likes to tell people they’re not using words like “literally” or “exponentially” correctly.

        Except that you missed the fact that “literally” is literally correct in this usage. Well done. You’re an idiot.

      • BORICUA

        THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Pangulin

        Adolf is just angry because you attacked his favorite reading material.
        Obviously they literally are the fine line between the writings of “The National Enquirer” and real journalism. Perhaps, next time Dr. Drew can give his interview to the gang from “Hollywood Life” , so that it can have real validity.
        However,I doubt that “Hollywood Life” would actually accept the interview since they prefer to use “sources close to” as their main suppliers of “facts”.

        Adolf go back to “The Bunker”, you are neither adult,(as disclosed by your brilliantly written childish rantings) enough to comment here or educated enough to correct any one else regarding the grammatical content of their posts.

    • Fartblossum

      i agree with adolf hitler. i can’t believe I just typed that.

      • Jen

        Anyone who needs more clarification on this subject, please see “How I met your mother” episode: Literally, Ted, Literally. Especially you McFeely.

      I reject your pop culture, and will rest on literal correctness. Literally (well…figuratively)

  18. Navin

    Who gives a shit what this guy says? The first time I saw Dr. Drew he was giving advice to Joey Potter on Dawson’s Creek.

  19. See Alice

    She does have that drawn out junkie look to her .

    • Blech

      Errrrrrrrr, she’s always had that look.

      This gal’s not hooked on heroin. My sibling was hooked on heroin, so I know what it looks like.

  20. Ann

    She can never stay in one place because people will find out she is a junkie. It must be fun to be a rich junkie…….

  21. Justin

    Every asshole with a failing career call up Brad and Angelina’s name to get media attention. Dr. Drew and Chelsea Handler and Jennifer Aniston are pathetic.

    • In the last two years Jennifer Aniston’s movies have grossed over $650 million. If that’s a failing career, I wish mine would start failing any day now.

      • Blech

        That’s ’cause people want to see Aniston’s ass. She’s not talented, just relatively attractive.

        Trust me, her movies are not gonna be grossing anywhere near that the more her skin sags.

      • Jimmy Fury

        Bullshit sir. In the last two years (since it’s the end of 2010 that means 2009 and 2010) Aniston has been in 4 movies which grossed a grand total of 209 million in the box office. Even going as far back as 2006 with The Breakup the total box office of ALL of Aniston’s films is only 484 million.

        Now compare that to the fact that Salt did 118 million by itself. 25 million more than Aniston’s best selling film of the last two years (which was “He’s Just Not That Into You” which made 93 million and her performance was generally reported as the weakest in the movie…) and more than the other three combined (by 2 million).

        The only way Aniston’s gross is getting up to 650 mil over the last two years is if you count the total DVD sales that also occurred over those two years. Which means you would have to account for the stuff still selling from the height of her career a decade ago. Those Friends box sets still take in a fair bit of cash.

    • Jimmy…this may surprise you, but people watch movies in other countries too. you have to look at domestic AND foreign box office results. Money counts, no matter if it’s white peoples money, or brown peoples you racist. you make me sick.

  22. What the hell does HE know about drug addiction?

    • well, he’s an MD and an addiction medicine specialist, but since he’s done LoveLine for 25 years, I’d argue that his real job is listening to pussy teenagers whine into the phone.

  23. suck it

    Since when was she a CONFIRMED user of heroin?? Did she ever admit to using? I guess I missed something.

  24. hollie

    Ha! He reminds me of Perez Hilton kept “outing” celebrities. I wonder if he truly thinks this will help.

  25. Like there’s any other way Angie is so stupid thin other than drugs and/or an eating disorder. Why is it so hard to believe she’s hooked on the smack? What, she’s too pretty to be on drugs? Yar.

  26. ja

    and this is the reason why angelina is starting too look like a cold hearted bitch. people attack her from every corner.

  30. That Bastard Tony

    Considering that Brad and Angelina both have the money and power to turn Dr. Drew’s lights off permanently, combined with the fact that Dr. Drew seems like a rational enough person to realize this, I would assume that it is probably true. He isn’t the first person to accuse Angelina of being on some hard drugs, and it wouldn’t be too surprising considering her history (too loving of a relationship with her brother, too hateful of a relationship with her father, banging Bill Bob and hijacking Brad from Jen). It doesn’t really matter since Courtney Love proved years ago that you can be a functioning heroin addict.

    With that said, I’m sure she would be an incredible lay.

    • Ann

      The crazy girls always have that “great lay” reputation. How come it doesn’t work for the crazy men?

      • That Bastard Tony

        It may be because most men and women look for different things when it comes to sex. Some women have to have some sort of an emotional attachment to a guy to enjoy themselves while men are sensory oriented. We could easily fuck someone we hate if we like how she looks, how she smells and what she is saying. My bad if that was TMI.

        One thing that all women should understand tho. Most guys out there have had at least 1 batshit crazy girlfriend that was our ultimate lay, but none of us married her. Brad Pitt should have lived by this law.

    • Blech

      What, is every father out there great? You may want to leave your house once in a while.

      And she HIJACKED Brad from Jen? Oooh, doubt that. That must be a translation for Jen’s, “I couldn’t satisfy Brad, so I lost him.”

      • That Bastard Tony

        Thanks for keeping the conversation civil Blech (sarcasm in case you don’t leave the house much).

        It common sense knowledge (for most of us that is) that it takes two people for a marriage to work, but it also takes two to create an affair. Brad is just as much responsible for that mess as Angie, however considering he had more to lose (being the married on at the time) he should have been smarter about that, bottom line.

        (stepping off soapbox to start packing for the holidays)

  31. Paging Dr. Stupid

    “There’s no such thing as ‘I was a heroin addict.’ ” Then why the hell would she want anything do with you? Either she can never be cured or she can never be an addict.

  32. Racer X

    I hate Dr. Drew. He doesn’t want to “help” anyone he wants ratings.

    /Angelina Jolie is waaaay to skinny, in SALT she’s like 98 lbs. kickin’ muscle guys ass? C’mon!!

  33. lori

    They both look like the undead. I think his observations are valid.

  34. Has it ever occurred to any of you, that Dr. Drew may be privy to inside information, that you key-pad mutants are not???

    Let me explain— When you know one celebrity, you know them all. It’s a very small community actually, and they love to talk about each other’s secrets.

    Not much different then you all gossiping about family and friends, to other family and friends, just much more interesting….Artofwar

  37. Jackie

    Dear stupid people,

    What he meant when he said that a former heroin addict doesn’t exist is that once you develop an addiction, even if you stop using, you are considered by the medical community to be an addict for the rest of your life. The same applies to all sorts of addictions. That’s why you hear people say, “I don’t drink because I’m an alcoholic”. Even if they quit drinking twenty years ago, they are still an alcoholic and cannot touch alcohol. Once a heroin addict, always a heroin addict no matter how long you’ve been clean.

    • ilikesake

      Dear Jackie (who seems to think she is smarter and prettier then us all)

      Alcoholism is a disabling addictive disorder. It is characterized by compulsive and uncontrolled consumption of alcohol despite its negative effects on the drinker’s health, relationships, and social standing. Like other drug addictions, alcoholism is medically defined as a treatable disease. (wikipedia)

      I disagree with your claim that someone who has been cured from their respective compulsion is always going to be branded an addict. Like any disease, its treatable. Once you’re treated and cured, you are no longer addicted. Therefore no longer an addict.

      • THE TRUTH

        You just cited Wikipedia, kill yourself.

      • akewlazzmom

        You are never “cured” from your addiction. You are always an addict, and after obtaining sobriety you are considered a “recovering” ___(alcoholic, addict, etc.). {o:

    • @ilikesake And thinner! Don’t forget she must be thinner than the rest of us, too!

      • Louise

        what Jackie said is true! you are never “cured” from a compulsive disorder. you learn how to control it. there will always be triggers that you must learn to deal with. an addict is always in recovery- or they’re re-lapsing. it’s shocking that people will dispute this!

        ps. treatable and cure-able are 2 different things. the Wikipedia entry was correct, but it didn’t mention “curing” the addiction. that was all “ilikesake’s” words. like wikipedia said, you can treat an addict. this is true. this is what Dr. Drew does for a living. (sometimes i wonder how people get through life….)

    Mother of six and dealing with a tight acting-schedule. I don’t think she’s a heroin addict.

  42. Dr Drew Is a Fraud

    She never said she was a heroin addict- she PLAYED one in the movies and admitted to trying drugs when she was younger. She also played a Russian spy and a 1920s telephone operator, but I’m pretty sure she’s nether of those “in real life”. Angelina is pretty low on the “bad acts” for celeb list- she’s never killed anyone (Rebecca G, Brandi), committed a hit & run (Halle B), been in jail (RDJ, Paris, etc.), trashed a hotel room (Johnny Depp), had a dui (too many celebs to count) OR been to rehab (once again, too many to count). She’s always been able to get work, be insured, and never had any reports of diva behavior on the set…what is the issue? Oh, yeah, Brad left Jennifer- well, whatever else you think of him, he (along with Vince Vaughn, John Mayer, and those other dudes) looks like a super-genius for running away from that scary, needy, whiny Aniston- she is the definition of dull. Mayer said she is stuck in 1998- maybe Dr. Drew can help her with that.

        You can be a functional drug addict. Rich folks can buy quality drugs, that arn’t as bad for you as some of the shit they step on street drugs with. Heroin is not much different than strong pain killers, and plenty of people abuse those, and live normal lives, and know one would know.

    • NOLGA

      No… Dr. Drew is for real… he’s not a franchise… he is what he is… a sole practitioner with following… because he’s pulled people through… look at his staff… look how they stand behind him… show me who is standing behind you and I’ll know if you have a foundation… he may have a “foundation” actually… Dr. Drew doesn’t have to work… he could take a snooze in the shade and follow the sun… If you could… if any of us could… follow the sun and not work… would we… yeah… Dr. Drew is in love with his work… and his few and far between results… and his staff is an indication of his successes and failures sometimes… occasionally… but he gives more than he takes… and his staff as well… they are devoted and caring… the television wasn’t there for the twenty (20) years it took to build the results they have achieved… one (1) day you will dedicate your life to something greater than yourself… you know… your talking but wait… until you hear your calling… Nolga…

    What I actually said was she’s addicted to playing heroines in movies. Darn journalists taking my words out of context! Sorry Ange!

  45. RiverinEygpt

    Dr. Drew is a genius. Unlike other psychiatrists he doesn’t need to meet personally with people, or take their actual histories, or consult others in the field to give a penetrating diagnosis.

  46. WillowtheWisp

    This is total smut! It says a lot about the hosts confidence when they have to stupe to this. Not worth the time of day.

  47. nisro

    Naive people would be shocked to find out what some of the most normal looking/acting people in the world are into. It’s not hard for someone with money to function perfectly as a drug addict. Not everyone could do it, but plenty do. Go hang out at your local sex/head shops, and watch what people buy, the most normal , buy the most fucked up and unexpected stuff. Surgeons buying 100s of coke vials at a time for personel use… etc..

    • That Bastard Tony

      I think most American suburban neighborhoods are the very definition of this. The nicer it looks, the darker the underbelly.

  48. Pangulin

    This is what you get when your doctor has a degree from the Oprah Winifrey School for Girls, long distance diagnosis and truly relevant public comments about people that they are not treating.
    Dr Phil, er uhh, I mean Dr.Drew is an idiot talking head with little or no real relevancy to anything. If he weren’t on TV, he would be washing cars in Encino.

  49. Rhialto

    There’re some wild rumors about her past which involve serious drug use. Hmm, i really have no idea. She did never officially confirm these rumors. I’m going to look for answers on her friend’s list.

  50. Galtacticus

    About Angelina Jolie’s ‘wild past’. She doesn’t really have this ‘diva gen’. She’s always lived this retreated life style as far as possible. I’ll blame the ‘blessing’ of her ‘natural beauty and talent’. It does turn out for most of them that it’s really hard to deal with that.
