In the magazine, Em talks about his own mortality, admitting he thinks about death — a lot.
“Yeah, I do. A lot. I think about it a lot. I try not to think about it, but I do and it creeps me the f*** out. It creeps me out because they say that if I got to the hospital two hours later then I would be gone. I think about that a lot. When I lay in bed at night is when I think about it the most. It creeps me out man,” he says.
‘8 Mile’ co-star Brittany Murphy’s passing was also on his mind during the interview. “It was crazy. It’s crazy. It’s crazy because at one point we were very close and she was a really good person. It’s crazy when you see things, not just with her, but just all these things that are happening in Hollywood.”
He thinks the culture of being a celebrity is part of the problem. “It’s one of those things man where you’re famous, doctors will kiss your a** because they love the celebrity. ‘Oh, I can call up Eminem and get him on the phone right now. Oh, hi Marshall, how are you doing? Do you need that [prescription]?’ There are doctors that will give you certain things just because of who you are.”
