Even with his busy schedule, filled with items like being shot into the air strapped into a port-a-potty, and filming Jackass 4, which is set to hit theaters September 3, Steve-O, who first embraced a clean lifestyle on March 10, 2008, says he's still involved with the sobriety community "big time". "I don't really talk about that when I'm concentrating on film and stuff, but yeah, I'm super-active," he told Uproxx last July. "Dude, I made it into… depends if you want to count drugs and alcohol separately, then I qualified for different fellowships, and I feel like I'm barreling towards my fifth."
A seemingly strong network in tow, Steve-O says he has also managed to find some alternate ways to navigate the physically taxing requirements of being a professional stuntman, famed for swallowing a goldfish and sticking fireworks up his butt. "When I got my ankle screwed together. There's little more invasive surgery than, what do you call it, compound fracture… open reduction," he said. "Open reduction, where they screw your whole ankle together, and I went through that and took zero painkillers other than Tylenol and Advil. “Of course, when I was in the hospital, they had me under, and they gave me, I’m sure, some kind of IV pain medication on the spot, but I’ve never even filled out a prescription. Tylenol and Advil for the win. And when it’s really unbearable, Tylenol with Advil."
So if, you had any doubts about Steve-O's badassery, look no further than his wild stunts -- and dedication to living a healthy lifestyle. I'll drink some green juice to that.
