Melissa Joan Hart Reveals Past Drug Use, Lesbian Kiss, Feud With Ashton Kutcher
Melissa Joan Hart candidly recounts a yearlong drug binge that occurred during the height of her fame in her new memoir Melissa Explains It All.
Hart, 37, played fairly well behaved teens on Nickelodeon’s Clarissa Explains It All and the erstwhile WB’s Sabrina the Teenage Witch. In her personal life, however, Hart, then in her late teens and 20s, was no stranger to recreational drug use and out of control partying.

“I experimented with weed, Ecstasy, mushrooms and mescaline for about a year and a half,” Hart told Life & Style. “I was kind of running with a bad crowd,” she explains. In the end, “I just didn’t enjoy taking drugs. I don’t like the loss of control.”
During that time, Hart attended a party at the Playboy Mansion at which she took her third or fourth dose of Ecstasy. On her limo ride home, she made out with a girl. Still high hours later, she arrived on the set of her infamously racy Maxim photo shoot.
Her wild partying days also included some make outs with a number of famous male celebs, including Jerry O’Connell and Nick Carter. Ashton Kutcher, however, didn’t make the list. “Ashton and I just didn’t get along,” she told the magazine, adding that she’d twice kicked him out of her wild parties.
