Recluse Jan-michel Vincent In Shocking New Tv Expose
Fallen Hollywood pin-up Jan-Michael Vincent has gone public about his alcoholism and health struggles in a shocking new TV expose.
The former Airwolf heartthrob, who has suffered a series of legal and medical setbacks since his career heyday two decades ago, has taped a rare interview for U.S, news show The Insider, which will air next week (18Sep07).
Struggling to speak after one of his vocal chords was shattered in an emergency medical procedure following a car crash in 1996, which left him with a broken neck, the now-grizzled star admits alcohol robbed him of his career and memories.
Asked to recall the car accident that almost killed him 11 years ago, the dazed actor slurs, "Y'know, I have no idea what you're talking about. I don't remember being in an accident." He goes on to admit he's an alcoholic.
