When it comes to celebrities, it is easy to look at their lifestyle and be jealous of all they get to do or accomplish. That may be a little bit less true when you consider Stephen Glover, aka, Steve-O.
Steve rose to prominence alongside the Jackass crew and together, they have created and filmed countless stunts that will either leave you laughing, crying, nauseous, or all three. Steve-O was arguably the most outgoing of any Jackass member and his stunts would often be the highlight of the television show or movie.
Now proudly sober, Steve-O has reinvented his personality in several prominent ways, some of which are listed below. When it comes to Steve-O, everyone knows that he must have done some crazy shit in his day, and you better believe that is documented in this list too. This "crazy shit" includes an interview with GQ, in which Steve-O discusses things like the most injured he has ever been, and the closest that he has ever come to death. Spoiler alert: he came pretty close to death.
Whether you want to read about his newfound passions that aren’t stunts, or the time he did cocaine with Mike Tyson, there is a little bit of everything in here for you. So, sit back, enjoy and at least the next time you see Steve-O do something cringeworthy, you’ll know a little bit more as to why he does the things he does.
13 The Most Injured He Has Ever Been
12 He Used To Hear Voices
11 He Snorted His Drug Dealer's Blood
When Steve-O sat down with an interview for GQ, they asked him what he considered to be his lowest moment of his drug use. Steve-O recalled how he used to be so desperate for drugs, he would literally just show up at his drug dealer's house if he did not pick up the phone. His dealer would shoot up coke, which, evidently, leads to the needles squirting blood all over. Steve-O recalls, "Blood encrusted all over the fucking place, too. And I struggle to believe how I got to a place where I’m in this f***ing drug dealer’s place, scraping shit off this table, which had visible fucking blood mixed in. I was scraping up blood and cocaine, and I fucking snorted it. I was snorting up dried blood.”
10 Steve-O Stormed Out Of A Charity Event
Steve-O, despite his penchant for reckless behavior at times, is actually quite meticulous in what he puts in his diet, as he is an active vegan. Not only is Steve-O a vegan, but he’s passionate enough to stand up for what he believes. Steve-O was at a charity event for the American Diabetes Association when he discovered that the menu was heavy in meat. This outraged Steve-O, who thought that the charity had put the fundraiser on to promote a plant-based diet.
9 He Swallowed A Baggie Of Marijuana
If you are trying to get through airport security and realize you have drugs on you, what on earth are you supposed to do? The logical answer is to throw them out but Steve-O thought it would be much smarter to put a baggie of marijuana into a condom and then swallow it.
8 He Hosted A Reality Show
7 Steve-O Went To Clown College
6 Steve-O Did Cocaine With Mike Tyson
Ryan Dunn was a close friend and co-star of Steve-O but unfortunately, he passed away on June 20th, 2011 after a drunk driving incident. The accident caused some outrage from people who condemned Dunn for dying in such a selfish way, while others were also mourning someone that provided hours of entertainment.

4 He Dated Kat Von D
To Steve-O’s credit, with a reputation that used to be less than positive, he has been one of the best examples of a former addict being able to turn his life around. Johnny Knoxville has talked about how when Steve-O’s emails started to hint at suicide, him and ten more of Steve-O’s men went up to Steve-O’s house to instruct him that it was time for him to go to rehab.

1 The Closest He Has Come To Dying
I am not too sure if you know this, but it may not be a super good idea to go on a cocaine bender before scuba diving. Steve-O went on a three to four day bender during which did not sleep the entire time and was also consuming copious amounts of alcohol. For whatever reason, he decided to go scuba diving and remembers, “At one point, I remember they said the sharks were on the bottom, so I went to the bottom, and someone grabbed my fin and really exasperated, like, “Go up. Go up.” And I went up and they were yelling at me, “You almost f***ing died, and you almost f***ing killed me trying to fucking save you.”
Given that Steve-O wasn’t even able to recall what continent he was on when this happened, I think it’s safe to say he was definitely not completely sober.
