The 'Speed Racer' actor admits that he used to smoke pot in his youth but blaming his stash of marijuana on his brother, who was away in Mexico City, when his father found out.
"Lost" star Matthew Fox landed his brother in big trouble in his teens by lying about a stash of marijuana. The actor was a hell raiser in his youth, but managed to keep the extent of his wild ways from his parents.
However, he feared he'd lost his lucky streak when his father found his "weed crop" hidden away on the family farm in Wyoming. Fox tells Playboy magazine, "I blamed it on my brother Francis, who's five years older than I am. He was in Mexico City on an exchange program for about six months."
"I thought, since Francis was so far away, the old man wouldn't double back on him. My father wasn't happy about it, but I think he was probably smiling through his anger... We smoked a lot of pot and were goofing around with that type of thing from a very early age."
