Stephen Fry Apologizes for Taking Cocaine at Buckingham Palace

The U.K. actor also admitted to taking the drug at Pinewood Studios and BBC headquarters. Stephen Fry has revealed that he once took cocaine while at Buckingham Palace.

The U.K. actor and TV personality admitted to and apologized for his actions in his latest autobiography, More Fool Me, excerpts of which have been widely circulated in the U.K. press. He also wrote that he used the drug in other high-profile locations, including the former BBC headquarters, Pinewood Studios and British parliament during the height of his 15-year addiction.

“I take this opportunity to apologize unreservedly to the owners, managers or representatives of the noble and ignoble premises and to the hundreds of private homes, offices, car dashboards, tables, mantelpieces and available polished surfaces that could so easily have been added to this list of shame,” he wrote.

“You may wish to have me struck off, banned, black-balled or in any other way punished for past crimes,” he wrote. “Surely now is the time to reach for the phone, the police or the club secretary.”

Published on Thursday, the third installment of Fry’s autobiography chronicles his life in the 1980s and 1990s as he found fame on U.K. TV and the expensive habit that grew out of it.

“How can I explain the extraordinary waste of time and money that went into my 15-year habit? Tens if not hundreds of thousands of pounds, and as many hours, sniffing, snorting and tooting away time that could have been employed writing, performing, thinking, exercising, living,” Fry wrote.

Fry, who suffers from bipolar disorder and has previously admitted to his drug addiction, also explained that he didn’t take the drug because he was depressed, unhappy or under pressure. “I took it because I really, really liked it,” he wrote.
