Movie Fact #768 – February 18th, 2015:

On his episode of “Inside the Actors Studio” in 1994, actor Chris Rock claimed that for several years following his acclaimed performance as  crack addict “Pookie” Benny Robinson in 1991’s “New Jack City”, drug dealers would approach him and put crack and cocaine in his pocket; joking that “they thought it was a documentary.” He also stated that, although he knew people who used crack at the time, he never did and, in his 1997 memoir “Rock This” had only smoked marijuana twice.
