Actor Terry Crews' past pornography obsession almost wrecked his marriage, because his guilty secret turned him into a sex addict. The Expendables star grew up in a strict religious home, where his mother and father both struggled with their own addictions, and he began to use pornography as an escape when he was 12 years old.
He tells U.S. TV host Wendy Williams, "We weren't allowed to play sports, we weren't allowed to watch movies...
"It was one of those things that took me and it medicated me and here's the problem, I never told anyone. I didn't tell my wife for years."
Crews reveals his addiction grew and he gambled with his marriage when he was unfaithful to his wife of 25 years, Rebecca.
He adds, "It's one of things where the pornography addiction turned into something else. You can't have something like that in your life without it growing into something else."
