In a recent radio interview with ESPN, Mike Tyson revealed that he did this in The Hangover so he can buy drugs. And sell film bootlegs.

Between “broken thinking” rehab lingo, the notorious Vegan talks robbing drug dealers to pay women, why trying to wipe your ass at 350 lbs is hard and how he turned it all around.

Here are the specifics of Tyson’s Operation Hangover:

I was doing that to supply my drug habit. I’m sorry I’m coming at you guys like this… I said, ‘Wow, This is going to be really good. We’re going to sell this stuff on 42nd street on bootleg and make a lot of money.’ This is my best thinking on drugs… It wasn’t that way. It was an international success.

Bunch of ridiculous ditties aside, the interview is touching. Kudos to Mike for trying to stay straight, especially since even the “straight road” reminds him of white lines. (Don’t, don’t do it.)
