Boxing legend Mike Tyson is speaking out on his decision to appear in 2009’s hit comedy “The Hangover.”

The former heavyweight champ who recently described himself as “pig” and said his life was a “f*cking waste” sat down with ESPN and tells them his motivation to be in the movie was his drug habit and penchant for selling bootleg movies.

He tells the broadcast network,

“I was doing that to supply my drug habit. I’m sorry I’m coming at you guys like this… I said, ‘Wow, This is going to be really good. We’re going to sell this stuff on 42nd street on bootleg and make a lot of money.’ This is my best thinking on drugs… It wasn’t that way. It was an international success.”
