Jackass 3D Star Kicks Drugs
Matt Damon, Cecile de France, Jay Mohr | PG-13 |
Clint Eastwood is a master of visceral storytelling-all the cowboys, crooks and fighters on his resume can tell you that. He is, however, less sure-footed in the metaphysical. Hereafter is Eastwood's overly long, moody take on what happens after we die, though the first five minutes suggest a different film entirely. Journalist Marie (de France), vacationing in Thailand, is suddenly swept up in the tsunami of 2004 in a scene of such terrific force that the rest of the film can't help but be a slow letdown. As Marie returns to France and struggles with flashbacks, reluctant psychic George (Damon) plods through his lonely life in America, while British boy Marcus (Frankie and George McLaren) retreats into himself after he loses someone close to him. The threads stay mostly separate, with each character suffering in quiet misery until the film's unsatisfying conclusion brings them together in a kind of forced catharsis. In Hereafter, as in the real world, an obsession with death means no life at all.

STEVE-O COMES CLEAN
Daredevil Steven "Steve-O" Glover is pinching himself, and not because his movie Jackass 3D-the third film in which he and his pals perform a series of gross-out stunts-took in $50.4 million during its opening weekend. The real reason he's incredulous? "I'm still alive," says Glover, 36. "I didn't kill myself." Not that he didn't try. For most of his life, Glover's existence had been consumed and nearly destroyed by his voracious appetite for drugs and alcohol. But for the past two years he has managed to tackle sobriety with the same gusto he exhibits in Jackass 3D when being hit in the privates with a baseball bat or stung-on purpose-by hordes of bees. "It was very sad and very scary," recalls Johnny Knoxville, who together with other Jackass castmates staged an intervention in March 2008 that led to Glover being locked down in a psych ward. "We didn't know if we could help him, but we knew we had to try."
Glover's sobriety is no stunt. Since getting out of rehab and spending two years in a halfway house, he is downright giddy to be living the simple life in a small two-bedroom Los Angeles apartment. He shuns coffee, meat and cigarettes and can often be found calling out bingo numbers at a local senior center. "My highest goal these days," says Glover, "is learning how to be comfortable just being a regular person."
