By now we’ve all seen the recent video of Cuba Gooding Jr. getting way too turnt in a Miami club. But there may be a good explanation for why the Oscar-winning actor was shirtless, dancing on a table and put a man’s phone in his mouth. Dale Godboldo, who co-starred with Cuba on The People V. O.J. Simpson told HipHollywood he’s witnessed Cuba’s crazy antics, and believes it’s just the way the actor blows off steam.

“We had a great time filming,” laughed Godboldo who plays Carl Douglas on the FX series. “He focuses and worked so hard on this role that sometimes on set he would just have to let it go and do something crazy on set, and everybody would crack up, and it would break the tension, and then he’d be right back in the zone.”

Cuba did admit while on Larry King Now that he was a bit overwhelmed playing the role of O.J. Simpson, and broke down while filming the funeral scene. “I remember celebrating the ‘not guilty’ verdict because I didn’t care if he did it or not. I didn’t want another black man to be railroaded, OK?” he said. “So here I was in that moment realizing I never grieved for those families. I could celebrate that, but I can’t take into consideration the Goldman family, the Brown’s and it just hit me.”

Cuba also told King it took him a month to recover from the role, saying: “I remember Heath Ledger said after he played the Joker character that it was just a darkness he couldn’t shake, and I always thought that was kind of BS. I was like, ‘You’re an actor. You’re supposed to go in and out. But it’s true Larry. I’m telling you.”

Hmmm, could he still be recovering? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
