“She says, ‘We know you’re drinking’,” recalls Perry, adding, “Imagine how scary a moment that was.”
At the worst point of his addiction, Perry admits that he was taking “55 Vicodin a day”, along with “Methadone, Xanax, a full quart of vodka a day.”
“At the time I should have been the toast of the town,” he says. “I was in a dark room meeting nothing but drug dealers and completely alone.”
The comedian also reveals how Aniston supported him throughout during his recovery process.
