Noah Centineo is sharing intimate details with his fans in his latest interview.
The Netflix star discussed his struggles with achieving sobriety and the “dark times” that saw him turn to drugs and alcohol. Centineo, who plays Peter Kavinsky in To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, heat up Harper’s Bazaar’s digital cover. In an interview with the magazine, the 23-year-old spoke up about his drug use — from the time he was a struggling actor at 17 to the day before he celebrated his 21st birthday.
“There’s a syndicate of, like, 500 to 1,000 kids in the entertainment industry that are all trying to make it right now that all they do Monday to Monday is party every night,” the actor tells Harper’s Bazaar.
The actor then cited taking Molly and talking with his friends “for five hours and like get to the bottom of some really deeply philosophical existential questions” as his favorite things to do at the time. He also admitted that before his breakout role in the 2018 romantic comedy To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, he dipped his fingers into “everything.”
“There wasn’t really much I wouldn’t do. I never ever injected anything, which is good,” he continued about his past drug use. “I smoked a lot of things. I was really upset, man. It was a really dark time in my life.”
At 15 years old, the actor dealt with the weight of his parents getting divorced which resulted in a broken family as he stayed with his mother in California while his sister Taylor lived with their father in Florida.
