Like his mother, who recounted her road to sobriety in her memoir Grace Notes, he also battles a substance addiction problem. When Jackson got the part in Tell Me Lies, he said he was trying to get sober. In an interview with Esquire, he said,
I was going through a pretty dark period in my life. I was getting sober and coming to terms with a lot and getting my life together. And I realized how important work was to my psyche and how much balance I wanted in my life. I really wanted to put a new foot forward towards it all, and I was throwing my sh*t against the wall and screaming and trying to make sense of this business because it’s insane. And I think whatever that was, mixed with a lot of self-reflection, a lot of sh*t that I was working on in my life lined up with this opportunity.
