  • Quotes

    • (On actress Eliska Amor, of whom he has cited romantic interest)
      Jack Osbourne: She's f*cking beautiful and what's better is she's talented. She's not some f*cking brat who just wound up in the spotlight. Beauty, brains and dignity. I like that.

    • Jack: (on the LA drug scene) You can pretty much walk into any bar in LA and ask for Vicodin (a painkiller) in the same way as you might ask for a cigarette. People will fish into their bags and hand one to you like they're handing you a stock of gum.

    • Jack: I decided to get sober when I took a look around the house I was at one day, and saw nothing but losers. My friends, the losers, sitting around staring at the walls, talking about nothing, and repeating the same patterns everyday. I thought about where I would be in five years, if I stayed with this crowd, and I saw myself as one of the losers, so I went home and told my Mum that I needed to get out of that scene now.

    • Jack: I love a great concert, the hard rocking music, the energy of the crowd, the electricity in the air, there's nothing like it. I will always go to my favorite shows and blow off some steam, it is a release that I need.

    • Jack: Life actually got so bad that I wanted to die. I wanted to die because I wasn't happy when I was sober & I wasn't happy when I was high anymore.

    • Jack: When my Mum first told me about her illness, I didn't cry, and that s*** hurt a lot. I have probably cried over her illness twice now, I was constantly just drowning it out, by drinking and using.

    • Jack: I was the little demon kid tearing through the house who seized every chance I got to terrorize the nanny and neighbors, and who walked out on his dad during the marijuana lecture. I was a total waste case for a spell.

    • Jack: Everybody always thinks extreme sports and they picture snowboarding, skateboarding, and surfing, but I took more of a Bohemian approach.

    • Jack: I was slamming shots and partying when most boys my age were building forts and playing with trains. I still go to extremes for thrills, it's just in the boxing ring now, or on the side of a mountain wall. I have even found my thrills two feet in front of the raging bulls in Pamplona, Spain.

    • Jack: I'll tell you what, when I was on Salathe Mountain after day three I thought, 'You know what, being up here makes you want to train harder. I trained solidly for the past six months to do it, but I'm going to train harder, come back and free more pitches.

    • Jack: When I meditate all worries in the world disappear. You are so present and focused on what you are doing, and flow smoothely, and I love that. I got a really noisy head and it just quiets things down for me.

    • Jack (blaming sister Kelly for his bad luck in the girlfriend department): She scares them off. I'll be with a girl and Kelly will go, 'You're ugly! F*ck off''. She may be right, but that's why I haven't had sex for four months.

    • Jack: I thought it was cool to get loaded, take drugs and get drunk, that was what I thought you did.

    • Jack (on giving up drugs): I was a fat kid with big specs in Hollywood, where everyone is beautiful. I still go out and party. I still get women. The difference is, I can now remember what happened.
