Actor Jason Mewes Sober for Three Years

Jason Mewes, the actor best known for his role as Jay of the Jay and Silent Bob duo in the Kevin Smith films "Clerks," "Mallrats," "Chasing Amy," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back," and "Dogma," has been sober and free of drugs for over three years. Mewes, 32, who filmed all of his first movies while under the influence of drugs, found filming "Clerks II" while sober more enjoyable.

"In the past, I was always ready to just bolt out and get high," Mewes recalls. "If we'd do two takes, I'd go, 'Dude, that's fine.' Really, I didn't know if it was fine, but in my head I just wanted to go back to my trailer to do more drugs. "The big difference this time was I was waking up early and looking forward to working. And I'd hang out after."
