Terry Crews survived a lot. He survived a tumultuous upbringing in an alcoholic household. He survived the destruction of his hometown, Flint, Michigan. He survived playing in the NFL. He survived a pornography addiction that sent him to rehab, and his marriage survived it too. And he survived a confrontation with Hollywood agents that he was certain would end his career. Terry tells Marc how his love of art, music and comedy always won out and how projects like Idiocracy, Brooklyn 99 and America’s Got Talent have embedded him in the culture.

I was an obvious but thou, but what I did was while because the actual courtroom This was what's coming from Chicago, whether they will do it, and I was an internet tv, Twel, W J Archie here and let me again- and
My father may eat my bodyguard made his job. He let you go myself ability and housing and the gases. Ok, companies but I was they hired you for what they hired me to do get back in the day here before computers, you actually drew the backdrops on the new They were like. Quite I would draw like. Chalk line and police car traffic, and they will go to you now to people Today my graphic will go behind all unit that was pre computer Now, as you do that as an internal me, do it as into and then when so that the court room but artist, he worked for the tv station tat exact with that? But he could make it and then I have no doubt you do it. I don't know what happened, but
but whatever one thousand yes, sir, you nankeen out you exactly ideas all jumped in air and they will. I homer you gotta career this enough, but then I went back to school Western Mission University Kepler. Papa ended up in an ever been self by in in college. You do our classes of dog, but it. But this was the deal I did aren't classes, but because I was a football player I could not take all the art class is because we are lapse We ask that you, don't you spend three out three hours a day painting, but I was a practice, so we also being looked at like features of doing. This is easy. Don't get too near elective now, because I was actually better. My teacher has an art I mean you know I'm a day I had a scam asking what I would do was. I would create a bunch of paintings all summer, our create really bad ones, and it would go all the way to very, very good one.
And then I will come in at the beginning of this measure, and I would say I will go to the teacher. Go help me with this. I don't know what's going on and then over the course of the semester, our keep handing it staff, knowing it was already died, but acting like I'll just and if this is so much better and that you help me so my guy you now we're getting a really big scare how play but I've. Never I never got my degree. I never got my degree you didn't, because I couldn't finish I could cause yoga play. I had a paper by me as a scholarship. Away. I there was no way I couldn't. They will tell me just go, get a business degree about it, but I'm an artist here I saw. There. I saw I actually ended up to our credit short and never gamma never got my did. You have to pay back for the scholarship nodded When I was dying out there alone like. If you are a scholarship, they don't say. I know you got a Finnish, you you're gonna be penalized. Somehow you know, I've seen were guys had their scholarships taken, but ah
I think I was done. While you are you're painter, your food player, sweet guy, you get this football ability, so you just felt like you had to go to you. If you got the drafted, you gonna go was my way to make money. So is a money going? Are you are do? Where was I gotta make money? I don't know, that's what I mean that arming artist is a true term back and more art is don't make money. When I go back to the court room down here was there was no money and that in turn dollars rail enemy. So I said enough: the way to make some cat right, and so I will do this and mahmoud- they was a more make sure this happens. Now I don't really like football, though it was kind of like I know I'll do it is hardly there I saw my wife was like you. Don't worry, I was I. How are you were married to her before if we american College, so she's been

We don't wanna play you play because it's your way right. The was happening now is more. People are convinced that they got some else to do. So, as you point out as the most you can do, you got that right You don't like people retiring earlier than ever right. Now that I got the things do, but a bacteria and escaped boxing. You know you'll kill boxing. Heavyweight division. Rap here was people that rapid I mean I bought here and the whole hip hop careers really boom boxing, down the board
What's your way out had to do was to take it out, you passed so you could get out here, but now a ball of some kind of but now arise, rip realizing wait a minute. We have other things to do. I can imagine what it why it? What is what it's gonna football narrower sports guy back here, that they must there must be some rush to being on the field. It's a bright law. You, your life, is in your hands and his eyes. My highlight a minor Bulgaria. I was knocked out on Monday night Football Ashtray, cynicism, ITALY, someone. I got knocked out which gave was isn't working out where you arduous, and were plan any atlas coat. I put the put the incident on my instagram. Well, I really hate show myself. Yet I hit this guy. So far, not myself are going to take up was the most peaceful feeling ever fell. Surrounded by a boy? I was like in of sudden you're in your life

Well, what is it and it was the horse you might work We didn't you look at all the naval. I do you're out of your concussed. I am concussed, but I went into the locker room, but have time and came out played arrested again? Who did your memory come back? They did the area, had it came with ours, and that was your high point that was highlighted here. For Bulgaria was of the Peter Lowness of being unconscious was the killer, so we saw how many teams
What was the war was the full range of the game guy were rams, packers charges how does it have worked to explain to me why so many teams and where you you, must be good enough to stay in the game. But what happened because I wasn't a star is one of those things where I was a body and I was always willing. I was I wouldn't stop. You don't owe me enough. Another thing to like allows people go. I quit, but I've never never quit. I just kept the ideas that you know what this gonna pay on and keep him pay your mother. But what happened I remember when I left me like the desire was done and I remember going to work out the abbot assent, but put a forty nine and This constitutes a ball at me, really hard dislocated my finger in hours.

I owe my guy he's from play. He picked up a camera name made a movie here. Our vision was like man, I'm gonna do this and as an artist I was, I can do this. So this is always in your mind, always always as oh, ok, so any quit bar my wife told me she said First of all, I remember when you say you know: moodily, yes, do it, and so we moved away. I may we will we lit

Has the money saved the we used, our pension fund, Vienna, Valkyrie retirement right, and we said we moved on to allay announced and ninety ninety seven and in what way out, hit the ground running out here, where we went wrong all at money where an under two years was gone. Yeah I was pride for I didn't want to, I was I am about blared and she was I money. We have nothing we were literally. I was digging with your privately to want to work like what we mean when we hold now, for you can get a real job.

Leaped up earlier similar like eyes, real football I'll, do it. I was so depressed. Either. We demand that was of Lisbon. Drinking you come from drunken people entering it was close. It was close. I had a pornography addiction no thousand over at that time. I mean that's like old times, for I ve gotten- rent the tapes haughty all time right, yeah, why, over and over again go to the place, didn't jerk off in the booth. If that is the reality I tell you how bad it was. It was like that, because the deal with a lot of these issue, I didn't drink beer, but MT. I come out somewhere somewhere here you He wasn't gambling thank our drugs. The point was bad enough
born is bad. I you know, I mean it's hard for me to actually now me we're talkin what no wait.

Oh my god, I gotta get this again and, as time goes on, I guess harder. Yet when you're, younger and in also tech Ology was different liking and then there is the view you go rent the tape by the tapes, but now I can see you're lucky that under control as it's like, it's hard, not be watching porn. My on the computer, do I got a text. Wait, wait. Somebody text, my balloon is good

All this is our chance evil I don't, but I felt it was now I see through it three eyes trick. That one, you know sex, important addiction, but you by day so that started. Early on my right when you first got here firmware the ever told my wife. Never
said I was mostly poor, not you not hookers, not yet no jail. Point no. Just poor. Yesterday said something interesting me like my sponsor, actually said once it that you know when you are compulsive sexually up with porn your primary sexual partners. You do so say. Do you know why? But I have to say it: it did there weren't Ike prostitutes, all of it, but there was one incident and when I first did my first movie in Vancouver editor I cheated him away. Yes, as part of our gas, I thought I would never do that like. I was it whether covers Robin tell us it yet already. I was the one year and our. How did I do this flight could junior my yet? I could never cross that
threshold or else in your mind, you just right now. What is it really? Second, you do you can't you just by rational rationalize any. Do I'd never promised us that I would never come alive? I will never say anything there and I was my dirty little secret for years hands, I never we're back. Never do it again, I hand job hand job, but I never do it again, but I will cite, but I knew that they're like while I was I like doing and I started arguments that we would talk about it. That's a destructive pragmatism cover the lie and it just kept growing. Do it our marriage imploded around two thousand tat early, two thousand and eleven thousand nine here, and we call it data and it was it was horrified. Will you take me out of the house? She was gone for the one who had, but how did it caught a comedy That's what it is like. Did you get caught, or did you just tell her the truth
Finally, I guess I'd ever got caught right after the day she was like sums wrong between the porn and yeah she's like something else does that there is a war, The idea in army, because you got to keep it this is the every man wants intimacy, because you asked what you really look in Bosnia, but poor is intimacy, killer, fire If you, like, you said you you're, you're all sexual partners, so no he's getting into a throw. Our happen was. Do she was I I don't know what's wrong with you, I don't always go, and finally, I will cite I told her. I mean because I was tired of keeping a secret myself manga. Your insight issues like what not to me am I right for two years ago, but to her. It happened two seconds ago and she's like here in the house.
Now with the poor. Nowhere is it like. We were every day hours a day, not true. It was ill. It would be no, but this is the astronauts I'm a hotel room. DA. We have movies you like to do it again and they like a couple days. Ladylike, oh boy, you ain't there you're getting me lay time time whatever, but not amity. Once I quit poor, I got like five jobs diet, design and furniture I started doing like do you know all the time you waste like remind me by the bar has been eight hours at the bar day. You can have all right and also the energy that you release. Yes, well, you don't say, put to better use. The truth is sexual energy is creative. Energy, too, is the same thing and I started create businesses haven't ideas. Holes like my has been, but
was literally sapping that energy from my life well liked. So what did you do as it as a system of recovery? Did you do I care twelve step thing? I went to rehab? Yes, yes, I went to rehab has played a linux so that serve. You have to create with sex. You have to create your own bottom line right up where right, because sex is necessary like food, so you have to kind of call yourself out. Yes- and I guess report is pretty easy. I cannot do not jerk off to that right, but there's also other types of sexual acting out that you have to be aware of right or do it was weird around they like it was like the colours in the sky were different? I mean I have to. I was just going everything that I knew was different. What I did. We did a ninety day. Sex pass between me and my wife, and I was crazy between the two you having a tangled anyone, others and a therapy and with therapy,
around yea and it was like hey, listen, we're not gonna, have says we're just gonna. We gave each other and will you gonna purified like burn this thing out of you, because what happened is the endorphins in the end, the dopamine rash that comes from that stuff? don't I know do, and it is the pressure that happens July wow. I was all over the place it's way, because it's also this weird stress, release thing. You know me does really take you out of yourself and also, if you go all the way through- and you finish your eye, you get. The buyers be also feel that's like yeah, it's like a hidden dope or whatever, and the Anders Gill and then there's some. Then then you do it to feel better, but then you feel guilty, so you feel worse so to get better, you do it again
and this in a cycle always feel lonely in your eyes drain your lonely place when you wanna fuck your work, you I'm just tired, and I already did it three times today. You see what I mean a net: it ruins it ruins your vision about sex, You lose intimacy parent right. So why mean I'm not that great intimacy, anyways right? You know right from the beginning of anyway and when you look back at your relationship, where were you ever good at that and ollinger? oh but I met, but it didn't help I'll write. I get outta here that it is they do you get more as you give more yeah. I know, but there's something scary about intimacy too. For some reason. Why were you Rachel to track me. Look. He grew up. When those volatile households, where are your dad
beaten on your mom and when he comes home Yonah, what thou the do so you know what's going to happen next, so being vulnerable is risky right. Very first of all I IP and a bit like up till I was like fourteen fifteen years because I was always always we ignore what was going to happen. So we never have you. I know you, nobody, I told you my mother's, like I'll, kill you there's a couple times. She stabbed him real, yet we would come home a chaotic scenes ITALY's, but knives? It's you know kind of their Christmas, is horrifying. Christmas is ridiculous. Christmas around all day. The miles was not happy to meet its We could even now have a bad memories of GDP, as the is crazy.
Because you just got ass when a drugs get really really we're here, man, and so there was so much stress, but this is a deal about what I found- and this has brought me down, because my wife actually accepted me back, because I thought, if she discovered who are really was, she would hate me, but the truth is because she loved me she was I I wanted you to reveal yourselves? You been waiting, she been way was seldom say. That's why I've been running poem was what I actually needed here and saw tat. Blew me away. May like then I discovered by being vulnerable was the key to my son. It was like my salvation Army by opening up by actually revealing by actually saying I need this because you got on instead. This is this is way men work, we get into a hole, and would you proud to say I may any so
doc an all, but the only way out is to say how scream at near, but Europe does too embarrassing, so people die in the whole mark I know. Did I was on my way to dine in whole zooms there. If you don't die physically, you die emotion, soon become better, and he has worked on this joke recently from I act better how I they should have an app or something that translates what angry guy saying to their women. The truth where your sword, like you, don't fucking, love and lay out the app says. I love you very much about sorrier does a great job. That is actually the true. It is right, as I say I mean I can't believable horrifying brings us an angry, tiring good. I guess she was there with us. We come to me about so
you're doing about it. I don't want to reveal it sought, start an argument and some in the low level of shit. You later bout. You know in your heart. You know that you're fuckin do and, as you know, it's like you have to he to use inside crazy. It's idea, the other one I got is like you fucking with my head. That means. I feel really close to you right now makes me unconquered, but these better. But this is the thing: that's what might their visa? Do? You have a double life you split into. This is, quite you know what's this is we're because almost like discovering that wait a minute Ah, you think this that the Sun revolver on earth and enormous- and you realize, wait a minute we go around the sun, like everything, is different, once you have a key into their but young. This religious reveals itself to me right now that the reason we have a split is because, when you have to to survive chaos, you have to put a personality in place that,
but do that. Thank you. No one way or the other answer like the real you get scammed, not put on hold, but he gets up behind the wall of this other thing, there's just getting through emotional chaos. Right scary part is men. We we can compartmentalize like no other, that's what we do. We have. We set this loss boxing and nobody can get through and its safe. Yes, I face, until it is, but you will, I do think you safer, actually your trapped, yet I mean you're all alone, and I can't get out now you like, maybe even Norway, and you think you can handle everything at that point you can get out you. I all right. So you're gonna hold our Managua younger, sound good doc, you, the Marlborough. Man, is the guy that poster he's a. Walking along these girls desire, but it's interesting thing
You say about women knowing this other part as they see it. Somehow, despite our are they see these moments of it? Are there like, they know that view and now they're waiting like you going to do it or what I didn't do it. I already know you give a youth is obvious. We kind of stepped up here, five kids, you good father and everything we brought up with them. Religion, I was, but my mother was super religious soon were related throughout. What, when I was a kid, I was not allowed to play sports not allowed to go to the movies. Listened a secular music. It was Think of the general regarding quite naturally when all we were our Pentecostal, where, was a lot of you know what they are wholly role. Where was shouted rhythm, oh sure thing in designating run it through the tongue, ops, beginning to allow that stuff? So why? Because everything was peer base
breathing with shame bay wherever they would like. Why are you thinking that idle, I'm a gay and so should aim shame. Shame shaven, enabled the way to keep people in control, so The same is like a man. A shame on you re thinking our way and if you do that, you're gonna go to hell at it, and I was I- and this was a crazy thing and then you internalize it in that's your home base, a shame. You shame yourself to live in it. There were people in our charter who put them tv in the window, sill and watch tv through the window sill, and they go to try to say I'll. Have tv in my house raised ass to see that the level of religiosity and the trap of what this thing is the new light wait a minute, but because we would say there was a tangled and movies, but we want to say movie on tv and I ll go wild ass, different goin in movies. Did you tell her? What are you talking about here and I always at these questions and I another more questions than ever shut up man
now shut up in your nominating at church. My mother's, my mother, eventually laughed when we were in high school and that's when I started plan height playing football again. I kind of getting out of that year by its that religiosity was still there. You know enemy, anatomy tat. Some may I still, I believe, in high poverty, and here I dont believe I made myself that writing here, but all the others, The problem is all this other stuff, the shameful.

Put it for a true is that, like the gambling attic is addicted to lose so right. So, like you, it's like you sit there and you try to work on your brain. Is that like? If shame, is your comfort zone? The if your comfort zone is unclear
oh and horrible. I hate myself you're only going to find a way to get there, even when you know in your mind that you want to feel good and you want to do the right thing. It's like you might be able to do that, but I feel so fuckin uncomfortable it just like you're gonna.

He goes. You haven't. He says of indian commies rats. Seven years, it's gone really well a maker. More money doing comedy them bill cause. This rule
Although hurts it does its value joke a camera? Why can't, I repeat, the last name air. So, but what about this? This gig you got now seems like a pretty sweet gate. I like it, I decided to start hosting You know a lot of people are doing that. Your house, the millionaire to learn my way through and because they are not a comedian, but it's a failure, because you ve done all these bits. Unlike Portland, he had drunk his yeah. You know I q did it rested, devour Mammy or known guy, but hosting it it's a comfortable gig. It seemed for some people who can do I love it. I would first of all I would do a tea for free its failure, because you can understand how this is to be big. His talent show in a whirl enamelled I'll. Take you back more.

But another thing is that agency satisfies this need the crowd for once you only play football or the audience. New literally army is a lot of pain, but that cheers those holding is very addictive. Like most comedians, I dig through the crowd, their dignity. We know what that
here is that energy is now it's. I don't know, what's going to happen in my way and you might lose its a bit of a gambler chronometer. I feel that way to an agency. You don't know, what's gonna happen, especially when, as la mere your hosting they give you the keys NBC for two hours MIA and you it's in your hands. Anything can happen. You drive. It's Saturday lying when it goes well, but I've been eyes. What is, I think, a crash heart and also for its inspiration of the people, that you are things you and it's like.
