“I would feel like — I’m in a film with Tom Cruise, I’ve got the part of Scotty in “Star Trek.” This should be making me feel happy,” he said. “But it wasn’t.”
Pegg said rehab and seeking help from Alcoholics Anonymous helped him get on the path toward health.
Pegg went into recovery as shooting started on 2011’s “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.”
“I don’t think I would be here now if I hadn’t had help,” he said.
“Mission: Impossible — Fallout” opens in theaters this week.
