DAX SHEPARD said he would let his and Kristen Bell's daughters try psychedelic drugs if they ever wanted to try them.
The actor was specifically talking about shrooms, while also including marijuana and alcohol.
The Parenthood actor made the shocking revelation on Monday's episode of his podcast, Armchair Expert with Dax Shepherd.
While talking to Rob Lowe, The Outsiders actor asked him about his daughters and when he would talk to them about drugs, as he already had that conversation with his two sons.
The 45-year-old then shocked his audience and said: "I'm so glad you just said that because I was going to ask you the same thing."
"I am pro my children doing mushrooms at some point. I do think… well, there are a lot of different studies that have pretty conclusively shown that you have long-lasting creative advantages, right.
"Like if you would've done mushrooms… that lasts. So I guess yeah, I'm going to tell my girls to do shrooms and to smoke pot and to drink and to just don't do cocaine or opioids."
He also seemed to firmly believe that if he didn't let his daughters explore psychedelic drugs, they'd possibly turn to worse ones.
Dax further explained: "If you don't do those two things you'll likely be able to do all the other ones for the rest of your life but if you get involved with those two…"
Both Dax and Rob have been on their own journies with sobriety, as both actors have been sober for several years.
As for Rob, he will be celebrating 30 years of sobriety this upcoming May.
The actor first began drinking and using drugs when he was a teenager and he claimed that it grew into addiction the more famous he got.
His lowest point was when his sex tape was leaked and he realized he needed help.
He stopped drinking and using drugs in 1990 when he entered rehab.
As for Dax, he's been sober for over 15 years and he attributes it to his marriage with wife, Kristen Bell.
When the two first met, they couldn't have been more different.
In an interview with Playboy, Dax revealed: "I just loved to get f***ed-up – drinking, cocaine, opiates, marijuana, diet pills, pain pills, everything.
"Mostly my love was Jack Daniel's and cocaine.
"I lived for going down the rabbit hole of meeting weird people. Of course, come Monday I would be tallying up all the different situations, and each one was progressively more dangerous. I got lucky in that I didn’t go to jail."
Despite him already being sober by the time they met, she helped keep him on the right path.
However, Kristen herself still dabbles in recreational marijuana and drinking, as it doesn't trigger Dax.
The couple has two daughters now: Lincoln, 7 and Delta, 5.
