I used to smoke heroin: Josh Brolin

Los Angeles: ‘Gangster Squad’ star Josh Brolin says his wild youth involved taking drugs and stealing cars along with a prison stint for fighting with police.

The 44-year-old actor, who was out of control in his teenage years, said filming `The Goonies` saved him because he enjoyed working on movies too much to get completely addicted, reported Radar online.

"What`d I spend the money on? Drums and drugs. What else was there? I was the last guy to get into heroin - I smoked it - and the first to get out. I was around 16 or 17, so it was around the time of `The Goonies`. But I liked working and learning, so it was very difficult for me to lend myself to that drug completely.

"I stole a lot of radios from cars. I could pop the detail with a coat hanger real easy. I got very good at it. I can still do it today. I could do it like that," he said.

Brolin, who was arrested for public intoxication in Santa Monica, Los Angeles on New Year`s Day, also said that he served time in jail after getting involved in a brawl.

"When I was 19 a fight broke out, and when the police came, I fought the police. I was pretty drunk. To this day, I have no idea what the fight was about. I woke up in jail. The police were very angry with me. Very angry. They kicked my ass really well...," he added.
