David Cross: I snorted cocaine near Obama

Comedian and actor David Cross isn't afraid of addressing issues head-on when asked, whether it's his (terrible) experiences working on a particular movie project, his criticisms on religion or rumors of his drug use. And in a Q&A with Playboy, Cross was rather honest on the subject of illegal substances.

When asked about rumors that he had done cocaine at the 2009 White House Correspondents' Dinner, the actor confessed his deed. "It was probably more like 65 feet (from President Obama)" the actor admitted. "It was literally the size of, I don't know, a tick. It was a tiny granule of coke that I put on my wrist and said, 'Watch this. I need a witness.' "

Cross went on to tell the magazine that he wasn't proud or ashamed of his actions, "it was just about being able to say that I did it, that I did cocaine in the same room as the president."

But there were consequences. The actor said that thanks to him, his girlfriend Amber Tamblyn won't ever be invited again. "I was her date, her plus-one ... she didn't know I was going to do it," he admitted.
