Next Page, a podcast focused on mental health awareness and trauma recovery, recently featured the multi-talented writer, actor, director and producer, David Goldsmith. In the episode Goldsmith discusses the challenges he endured as a result of being the son of his now famous father, Actor, Jonathan Goldsmith, best known for his role as ‘The Most Interesting Man in The World’ in a ten-year long Dos Equis commercial campaign.
In Episode 15 of Next Page, hosts Laura Patrick and Todd Adamson dive deep into the many layers of complicated and traumatic relationships Goldsmith experienced throughout his life in entertainment; from growing up in “the biz” to the film industry as a whole. In addition, Goldsmith opens up about the repercussions of being raised by two narcissistic entertainers, the crippling expectations surrounding body image in Hollywood, and the many mental health impacts and sacrifices people make to be a part of the entertainment industry
Goldsmith said in the interview about his father and home life, “Your safe place is supposed to be your friends and family. Unfortunately, I never really had that on the family side. My safe place was never at home.”
Goldsmith hopes that by coming out about his own suffering and trauma, that others will benefit. “I think this podcast is important. That those folks out in the universe that suffer, and that’s pretty much everybody, whether folks want to admit it or not, [to know that] it’s nice to be able to hear you’re not alone.”
