OSCAR ISAAC HAD FIRST DRINK AT 24
Actor Oscar Isaac has revealed that he didn’t drink alcohol until he was 24 years old.
Though his family used to “spy” on him to make sure he wasn’t up to anything untoward, Isaac insists they had no need to worry because he enjoyed the “individuality” of being the only one in his group not to get high.
“It was glorious, I loved it so much. I could walk to the beach every day, and go to this wild school where I became friends with so many different kinds of people,” he says, adding, “I met these guys who lived in the trailer parks in Boynton Beach and started a band, and my mom and my little brother would come and spy on me to see if I was doing drugs or anything, and I never was.”
“I didn’t drink till I was, like, 24. Even though I stopped being religious, I liked the individuality of being the guy who didn’t do that stuff. Maybe it was the observer part of me... I liked being a little bit detached, and I wasn’t interested in doing something that was going to make me lose control,” added Isaac.
