‘Clerks’ and ‘Dogma’ alum Kevin Smith, aka Silent Bob, stopped through the Cruz Show to share some important life changes he’s gone through as well as his upcoming series ‘Hollywood.’

Suffering a nearly fatal heart attack earlier this year, the 48-year-old comedian, director, and actor details how the unexpected heart attack actually changed his life. Being an advocate marijuana smoker, Smith reveals that his use of marijuana possibly prevented his death.

I said, “Dr. Michelle, I smoke a lot of weed that morning [of his heart attack], I smoked a big fat joint before I went [to the hospital], like, I’m scared to ask this because a large portion of my day is dedicated to this, but did weed have something to do with my heart attack?” She goes, “No. In fact, it was probably a good thing that you were smoking that much weed.”

Smith goes on to say that his calm state during his heart attack helped ease the severity of his emergency surgery.

Kevin also details what it’s like going Vegan, how his sex life has changed since losing weight, and talks his upcoming Rivet TV series.
