In an interview with Newsweek, Dennis Quaid said his biggest mistake was being addicted to cocaine. But it wasn’t his fault, you see! He claimed that when he got to Los Angeles in 1972, coke was “even in the budgets of movies, thinly disguised” and used as “petty cash.” He also said doing the drug was what made him feel incapable of dealing with fame: “Doing blow just contributed to me not being able to handle all that fame, which, at the time, I guess I felt I didn’t deserve.
