Terry Crews: I Was Addicted To Porn

By  | 

Actor Terry Crews is revealing a dirty little secret about his past, that being that he was once addicted to pornography. Crews made the revelation in a Facebook video diary, saying his addiction nearly cost him his marriage.

“Pornography really, really messed up my life in a lot of ways. It was my secret and nobody knew, and that allowed it to grow and it got bad,” Crews shared. “If day turns into night, and you are still watching [porn], you probably got a problem. And that was me. It effected everything. I didn’t tell my wife, I didn’t tell my friends.”

Crew says that the first step to recovering from his addiction was admitting that to himself that he had a problem; that became easier to do when his wife of 26 years threatened to leave him. “My wife was literally like, ‘I don’t know you aymore. I’m out of here.’ And that changed me. I had to change because I realized, ‘Yo, this thing is a major, major problem.'”

Crews and his partner, Rebecca King-Crews, worked through the issue together, but he remains adamant that porn addiction is a serious issue that can desensitize people. “My issue … with pornography is that it changes the way you think about people. People become objects, people become body parts, they become things to be used rather than people to be loved. And you start to change the way you see people, and you start to use people.”
