Jason Biggs Recalls How He Hid His Alcoholism From Wife Before Getting Sober


Jason Biggs recently revealed to his wife, Jenny Mollen, how he hid his alcohol addiction from her. The American Pie star made the admissions during an appearance on the most recent episode of Mollen’s podcast, All the Fails.

“I’m going to therapy and ‘working on things,’ but meanwhile I’m leaving therapy, having just had a good session, and I’m going to the liquor store and buying a fifth of vodka, drinking it, and then driving home,” Biggs recounted to his astonished wife.

“I was married to this guy?” Mollen asked. “That’s just so weird to me,” she continued. “These are the things that, like, shock me. How did I not notice?”

Biggs said he “knew how to get wasted enough to where I took myself out of the life equation, took myself out of the present, didn’t have to connect in a way that made me feel things.”

The actor continued: “It was all science. I had it figured out to a T, but not get too drunk where I couldn’t have a conversation with you.”

Biggs went on to explain that, during his addiction, he was replacing bottles in the couple’s home bar “all the time.”

The star has admitted in the past that he had an “obsession with booze and drugs.” He first tried to get sober in 2012. However, he struggled with his substance abuse until 2017, when he was able to sober up for good.

Biggs commemorated his one-year sobriety anniversary in a 2018 Instagram post.

“After some fits and starts, I’ve managed to put together one year of sobriety,” Biggs wrote at the time. “I’m as proud of it as anything in my life. If you’re struggling, know there’s help. Don’t be ashamed. We can do this.”
