Anderson recently pleaded guilty to possession of illicit substances, including crack cocaine, resulting in a substantial fine. The incident transpired on Boxing Day in 2023 at a Hampstead pub, jeopardizing his role in the upcoming Peaky Blinders film adaptation.

According to reports from Daily Mail, Anderson admitted to owning “class A crack cocaine, class B amphetamines, and two class C prescription substances” during a court appearance on January 25. The fine imposed amounted to £1,345 (approximately Rs 1.4 lakh). The pub management alerted the police after detecting suspicious odors in the disabled restroom, leading to Anderson’s apprehension. Subsequent investigations revealed the presence of crack cocaine, pregabalin, diazepam, and other amphetamines in his possession.

Despite testing positive for cocaine and opiates, Anderson remained tight-lipped during his court appearance, offering a “no comment” response to all questions. His lawyer acknowledged the unfortunate situation, stating, “He found himself in an unfortunate position and should have had the strength to say no.” The lawyer attributed Anderson’s actions to external inducements, emphasizing the actor’s attempt to appease those around him on Boxing Day.
