Chuck Norris: I Was Partying Myself To Death, Then I Found My Faith
We all see many actors in Hollywood whose lives go down the drain. For people who are so successful, why are they so unhappy? Chuck Norris tells his answer: They're trying to fill the void with things that don't work.
Norris told Hollywood TV, “The thing is, I know a lot of actors, and, just look in their eyes. They try to be happy but you can see that they’re not. And you see them out partying, trying to fill that void.”
Norris knows what that's like, because he used to do the same thing. “I did it,” said Norris, reports CNS News. “I was partying myself to death, trying to fill that void that I had. You see it in all the actors out there trying to fill that void by drugs, alcohol, all the things that are not going to cure that void that they have in them, until they really find their faith.”
As one who has been on both sides, Norris can tell the difference in people. “The actors I meet that have their faith, you can see a brightness in their eyes,” he said. “And the ones that don’t have it, you can see that darkness in their eyes.”
His advice? So, I just say, try it. Try your faith. Just try it out and see if it works for you – I know it will and it worked for me. I know it will work for them too if they will just give it a try.”
