Simon Pegg was "sneaky" about hiding his alcohol addiction.
The 53-year-old actor first revealed he was hooked on booze in an interview with The Guardian in 2018 and has now said he struggled to hide it on the set of "Mission: Impossible III." Pegg told The Guardian about his pain over rewatching the movie: "When I watch that film back, I can see where I was then, which was fairly lost, and unhappy, and an alcoholic."
He told host Lauren Laverne on the new edition of BBC Radio 4's "Desert Island Discs" about shooting the fi lm while drinking: "You learn how to do it without anyone noticing because it takes over. It wants to sustain itself, and it will do everything it can to not be stopped. But eventually it just gets to a point when it can't be hidden, and that's when, thankfully, I was able to pull out of the dive. You become very sneaky when you have something like that in your life."
