“I hated the wreckage I saw in my life because of drugs, but I just couldn’t stop”. Cameron said in an interview with a Hollywood magazine, adding, “It’s the sneaky power, the strangehold that addiction has when you’re in the throes of it. When you get that far down the rabbit hole, there are a couple of options : there’s prison and then there’s death.”
The 75 year old Basic Instinct actor added, “There were moments when hope dwindled…and then it’s just a train out of the station. Life became a series of crisis. I though I was going to lose him”. Cameron was sentenced to five years of imprisonment for conspiracy to distribute meth and cocaine in the year 2009. He ended up spending almost eight years behind bars, after he was found in possession of more drugs in prison.
According to a magazine, since his release from prison in the year 2016, Cameron is now raising his two-year-old daughter Lua with his partner Vivian Thiebes besides pursuing his acting career again in Hollywood. Now they look very happy than before and is now living a good normal and a healthy life with their small family.
