Hetfield provides the narration for new documentary that looks at the issue of porn addiction, its negative psychological effects, what it can do to relationships and how to overcome it.
The film, called Addicted to Porn: Chasing the Cardboard Butterfly, is currently being screened around the country. From the movie’s official synopsis:
In what may well be one of the most devastating issues in modern culture, this film will break down the damage that porn is doing to us a human race and leave you thinking that it's clearly time that we start taking porn addiction a bit more seriously.
It’s not the first collaboration between Hetfield and filmmaker Justin Hunt. Hunt interviewed Hetfield—along with a variety of other well-known artists and writers including John Eldredge—in a film about disengaged fathers called Absent.
