Wes Bentley, the star of the popular series Yellowstone, has opened up about his struggle with drug addiction and how he almost lost everything to it.
Bentley revealed that he lost everything to the "fire" of drug addiction. He was $400,000 in debt and had no car, no clothes, and no money.
Bentley started taking psychedelics after moving to Hollywood, which led him down the dark path of drug addiction.
Bentley admitted to being competitive even when it came to drugs. He wanted to be the one who went the furthest, which only made his addiction worse.
Before his life was consumed by addiction, Bentley had formed a close bond with the late Heath Ledger. They became friends while filming The Four Feathers.
Ledger's sudden death in 2008 was a devastating blow to Bentley. He was unable to attend his friend's funeral because he was high at the time.
He sent him an email begging him to get help, and Bentley eventually listened. Today, he is sober and enjoying a successful career on Yellowstone.
