James Scott Quits Days of Our Lives After Smoking Hallucinogenics, Calls Soap Fans "F--king Idiots"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Days of Our Lives star James Scott has apparently quit the daytime show after smoking hallucinogenic drugs and having an epiphany of sorts ... seriously.

The popular, British leading man/villain on the soap opera for eight years went to Peru this spring, chilling with shamans and experimenting with substances.

He revealed this in an interview in which he called obsessed soap fans “fucking idiots” and revealed that, well, he won't be catering to them any longer.

James Scott says of his life-altering experience:

“I just got back from Peru. I spent six days in the jungles of Peru doing Ayahuasca with the shaman.  It was the single most positive experience of my life."

"Ayahuasca is this hallucinogenic. I sat in a tent, in a hut, in the jungle, on the amazons with three shaman blowing tobacco smoke into my crown."

"Realigning my chakras and my energy, while I hallucinated for four to six hours ... I mean, this is all hard to explain. It’s very spiritual and very interesting."

"This is a medicine that the people of South America have been using for years to have a relationship with a higher consciousness."

"It sounds wacky when you say it, but it was truly the most important thing I have ever done. I came back a very different person.”

The Today show recently did a piece on LSD-like medicine (it’s legal in Brazil) after Lindsay Lohan talked about drinking Ayahuasca tea after a miscarriage.

Rock star Sting wrote about trying Ayahuasca on a trip to Brazil, saying it "brought me close to something, something fearful and profound and deadly serious.”

For James Scott, it just brought him out of the soap opera bubble, evidently. After going through that, he just can't go through with the daytime drama any longer.

At least until that spiritual buzz wears of.

Maybe he should've stuck with pot?

I don't know if your 'journalist' doesn't flunked reading and comprehension or if he just deliberately twisted this to throw some shade and get people to read this bullshit. He didn't go to Peru, get high and quit his job when he returned. He finished out his contract and left. He was thisclose to leaving last year when he agreed to stay for one more year. He did not call soap fans fucking idiots, he called fans who harass actors for doing their jobs fucking idiots. Me calling journalists who twist the facts idiots is not the same as me calling all journalists idiots. I guess we know why Hollywood Gossip, is just that, gossip and not to be believed.

Fact check! Pretty much none of this is accurate. Read the interview he gave - where the info was taken from. Misrepresenting people is rude.

As a fan, sorry to see him leave the show. I'd also like to add that the article is full of misinformation. He didn't call soap fans f***ing idiots. He called fans who were attacking and cyber bullying his co-star that. He also made the decision to leave Days long before his trip to Peru. The original article is from Michael Firman, a soap journalist who interviewed him. I wish people would to better at journalism.
