Jackass 3D star Johnny Knoxville, has several reasons to celebrate. Not only is he recently remarried but he’s a daddy again. In a new interview, Knoxville said he was amazed that Jackass did so well. It crushed box office numbers, raking in over $50 million dollars opening weekend. Paramount studios must be pleased.
Born under the astrology sign of Pisces, Johnny Knoxville is a warm and fuzzy kinda guy. Don’t let his hilarious stunts fool you. Super creative, he takes good care of his friends and family. For his wife Mrs. Knoxville, he’s probably very sweet and romantic. For his Jackass dudes, they are like his brothers. One particular best buds, Steve O, getting him clean and sober was one of the biggest challenges he faced in his life.
Johnny Knoxville says, “We’d all had our eye on Steve O because he’d gotten to a really bad point in doing all kinds of crazy drugs,” Johnny told Access Hollywood Live’s Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Wednesday, of the March 2008 intervention. “But [when Steve-O’s] e-mails kind of hinted at [suicide]… I got 10 of our closest friends — big guys– and went to his house and said, ‘Steve-O, you know, we’re here to take you in to the rehab, or actually 5150 [medical hold],’ and he goes, ‘No dude, I ain’t going.’
Johnny Knoxville not taking no for an answer said, ‘Steve-O, if you don’t go I’ve instructed the guys to knock you out and then we’ll take you.’ He’s like, ‘OK dude, I’ll go,’” Off to rehab Steve O went. Johnny Knoxville say’s he’s proud of his fellow prankster, “But he went, and to his credit, man, he just stuck with it, and he’s been sober two-and-a-half years.”
Astrologically, Steve O a Gemini has a lot to look forward to over the next year. New career opportunities will be presented, possibly even a new reality show. The former ex boyfriend of Kat Von D, a serious love relationship may be on the horizon that includes marriage and kids. Until than, expect Jackass 3D part two to hit theaters in 2012.
