Metallica's James Hetfield Warns About Porn Addiction (Video)

| by Michael Allen

Metallica lead singer James Hetfield narrates a new film that warns about the dangers of porn addiction (video below).

Writer-director Justin Hunt, the man behind "Addicted to Porn: Chasing the Cardboard Butterfly," previously interviewed Hetfield for a documentary entitled "Absent," which was about estranged dads and the impact that fatherless families have on society, notes Blabbermouth.net.

The film's trailer does not include Hetfield, but does feature men confessing how they have viewed pornography, and women who are upset about it.

One woman, who is filmed in silhouette, says: "I hope that next generations can realize that making love is not choking, slapping and spanking while you're having sex. That's not love."

This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.

The website for "Addicted to Porn: Chasing the Cardboard Butterfly" describes the film:

Like it or not, porn is here and it is harmful. In this controversial film, award-winning filmmaker Justin Hunt dissects the impact of pornography on societies around the globe, from how it affects the brain of the individual, to how modern technology leads to greater exposure to youth, to watching it literally tear a family apart.

In what may well be one of the most devastating issues in modern culture, this film will break down the damage that porn is doing to us a human race and leave you thinking that it's clearly time that we start taking porn addiction much more seriously.

Hunt told Blabbermouth.net that the film will be released on Video On Demand (VOD) in April 2017, and in screenings around the U.S.

Hetfield may seem like an unusual choice as narrator, given his comments to Rolling Stone in 1993:

I definitely don't want to tell people how to live. We've said since Day One, "Think for yourself." If someone's dumb enough to just follow somebody else, that's their own fault.

When you're a role model, you have a responsibility and you lose your creative juices. You worry about what other people think of you. Why worry about what people think?

You have to be true to yourself, write what you feel. When people see that you're full of s***, then it's over. We can't fool our fans very much.
