Steve-O marked his 13-year sobriety anniversary with stunning before-and-after photos

This year, entertainer Steve-O marked 15 years being sober, but we are just a tad disappointed he didn’t celebrate it like he did to mark 13 years.

The Jackass star has been rather open about his sobriety journey and the setbacks he has faced in the past.

To be honest, he is one of many famous faces to open up about their dark times and difficult road to recovery.

And there is no doubt that many look up to celebrities, and them being so open about their struggles has helped many of their fans.

In fact, Steve-O had his own documentary, where an MTV program known as Steve-O: Demise and Rise looked closer at the Jackass star’s drug problems.

Speaking about the doc, Steve-O said: “I watched a rough draft of it very early on and I reacted badly to it.

“When I saw the footage of myself doing drugs, I felt like I could see them, I could taste them.

“It made me crave them and as embarrassing as that footage is, that just seemed like another reason to get high. I couldn’t watch it; I haven’t watched it since then.”

He continued: “The producers put it all together and finished it up without any input for me, it’s better that way.”

Obviously, it is never easy to beat an addiction, so celebrating those sobriety anniversaries is certainly a must.

And how Steve-O celebrated was quite incredible, as he posted two photos to his Twitter account in 2021.

Captioning the tweet, he wrote: “So grateful to be celebrating thirteen years of sobriety today— thanks to everyone who helped me get here!”

However, the pictures accompanying this post are certainly the main talking point.

The left photo is from 2006, where Steve-O is surrounded by pills, alcohol and seemingly blood as well.

Generally, he looks quite strung out and in a rather bad way, but the second photo is a polar opposite.

In that one, from 2021, the pills and the booze have been switched out for vegetables, with Steve-O looking a lot more happier and healthier.

Another famous face celebrating 15 years sober this year is Eminem, who has opened up about his battles and demons in the past, revealing he was once taking up to 30 Vicodin (an opioid that treats severe pain) a day as well as ‘anywhere from 40 to 60 Valium’ (a benzodiazepine that can help people be calm).

During the documentary How To Make Money Selling Drugs, Eminem said: “I don’t know at what point exactly it started to be a problem. I just remember liking it more and more.”

Steve-O has revealed a big stunt from Jackass 4 that left him paralysed from the waist down – only momentarily, thankfully.

The fourth Jackass film was released in February last year, and saw most of the old gang back together to inflict a world of pain on themselves and one another.

Ahead of the film’s release, Steve-O, 48, admitted he was initially fearful of going in for another round, after it finally dawned on him that one wrong move could end it all.

He told GQ: “I thought going into Jackass 4, after everything we’ve been through, and everything we’ve built, all it takes is one stupid f**king accident to just erase it. Just turn it all into a negative. To be like… oh, these f**king dumb assholes. What did you f*cking expect? But we went ahead and f**king did it.”

Indeed they did, though not without a bit of pain along the way thanks to stunts including ‘scorpion botox’ and, um, ‘bee genitals’.

But one of the worst for Steve-O was one that saw him paralysed from the waist down in one of the stunts from the movie.

Oh, and it had been on purpose.

In a video on his own YouTube Channel, he said: “I might have actually talked a doctor into dressing up as a clown so that he could put a four-inch needle into my spine and inject me with a drug that would paralyze me from the waist down while I was sprinting and before all kinds of terrible s*** happened to me.”

Bam Margera was originally fired from the long-awaited sequel after allegedly testing positive for Adderall, in breach of his ‘wellness agreement’.

It was later announced that he would appear in the film, but only briefly.

Earlier this week, 43-year-old Margera surrendered to police after days of being on the run.

An arrest warrant by Pennsylvania State Police was issued after he was accused of punching his brother Jess in the face.

Police said they were called to the home in response to a reported domestic disturbance shortly before 11.00am local time on Sunday (23 April).

After turning himself in, Margera said: “I just got out of the courthouse with my lawyers.

“Everything went great and the false accusations of what my brother says are not true and he will be sued for defamation as well as being evicted from castle bam sooner than later.

“The reason I lost my cool is because I read his phone saying he wants me back in California and he wants to find a way to 302 me. F*** him.”
