"I've never done drugs. That's because I saw this stuff literally every day when I was three or four years old. So Hollywood was a walk in the park for me. I'd go to parties and
it was there, and yeah, there's that temptation," he said.

The 'Inception' actor went on to describe the rough area of Hollywood where he grew up saying there was "violence everywhere".

"There was a major prostitution ring on my street corner, crime and violence everywhere. It really was like Taxi Driver in a lot of ways. I grew up very poor and I got to see the
other side of the spectrum."
