Fact: David Cross once snorted cocaine at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.
The actor confessed to the persistent rumor in an interview in the March issue of Playboy magazine, saying he pulled the stunt while sitting some 65 feet away from President Obama.
"It wasnt even that much cocaine. It was literally the size of, I dont know, a tick. It was a tiny granule of coke that I put on my wrist and said, 'Watch this. I need a witness,'" Cross recalled.
"And then I ducked under the table and did it. It wasnt like I got high," he continued. "The jolt was similar to licking an empty espresso cup. It wasnt about that. It was just about being able to say that I did it, that I did cocaine in the same room as the president."
Cross, the star of the IFC series The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, recently took heat for his rant against a producer on Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, a film he's vilified in public as "most miserable experience I ever had in my professional life."
As for the White House incident, Cross said he's not "ashamed" but regrets the embarrassment it caused his fiancee, actress Amber Tamblyn, who had invited him to the dinner.
"I was her date, her plus-one, and she got dragged through the mud because of what I did. She had nothing to do with it. And because of that shell never be invited to the White House again. Thats not cool."
Another Cross confession: he remains "curious" about new recreational drugs, and considers crack to be wack.
"I smoked it once, and it was a huge wake-up call ... When it came time to get some more, I knew very clearly that if I stayed thereand I wanted tomy life would change right then and there for the worse. I never touched crack again."
I suppose the Libs think this is amusing...
Never heard of this person till now. Well, he knows how to get attention.
Next up, rehab, a slap on the wrist, an apology/press release, and his girl friend gets to go hang out with the Marxist again as a sign of good will and acceptance by the _resident. Couple of imbeciles.
Well gee... I guess we should be reasonable about this. I mean, it’s not like he was smoking a cigarette or anything really bad, right?
This is how all liberal bedtime stories should end.
This is true. A few more dollars of tax on a carton and I’ll have to quit thanks to social engineering.
Yes this is all about him getting attention. I heard this when it happened in 2009 because he talked about it in an interview at that time. The guy is a loser and I hope he goes away
...And on a related note, her amazing Dad: Russ Tamblyn.
Never heard of him.
This red diaper baby is even worse than Bill Maher
an awful hater of traditional American culture
how do these folks get heard?
Wow... what an incredible dance by Russ Tamblyn (whom I’ve never heard of before)! He’s Amber Tamblyn’s dad?
Ick... Amber Tamblyn is engaged to this creep? WHAT does she see in this creepy guy??
He’s an analrapist.
Libs are overgrown children. Emotionally, they never progressed past high school.
What a DUMBASS.
Tamblyn also had a nice role as Dr. Jacoby in the David Lynch TV show, 'Twin Peaks' in the early '90s. He has worked with musician Neil Young for many years and he was even in the movie 'Drive' just last year. He's 78 and still working. I guess that's not too surprising seeing the kind of athlete he is.
By the way, Tamblyn's brother Larry played keyboards in a pretty popular '60s band called 'The Standells' ('Dirty water').
