OS­CAR ISAAC HAD FIRST DRINK AT 24

Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
