Paul Anderson has expressed that he is facing difficulties in his life, even after many Peaky Blinders fans showed their concern about his health through a photo that circulated months ago.

A picture of the UK star surfaced online presenting a modified version of his appearance. This occurred a few weeks after he confessed to possessing crack cocaine, raising doubts about his participation in the BBC program's newly-announced Netflix film.

Anderson, who is 46 years old, gave his fans the good news that he was alright soon after the incident. However, he recently talked about the difficulties he is currently facing. He revealed, "You can't have a story without going through difficulties. I know this from my own experiences. Even now, I am still facing challenges, just like all of you."

Anderson, known for his role as Arthur Shelby in Peaky Blinders, recently posted an inspiring message on his Instagram Stories. He encouraged his followers to look within themselves and discover their inner strength to conquer any obstacles or hardships they may be facing. He acknowledged that experiencing difficulties and suffering is a part of life, but emphasized the importance of overcoming them and moving forward.

The performer declared: "If I can assist you in managing your difficulties, then let's collaborate on this. We must have additional conversations because trying to handle it by yourself is not effective. You must seek help."

He said: "I have one more point to share with you. Helping others can also help yourself, and it's called service. My friend, try to find someone else who is struggling and offer them assistance, even if it's challenging for you. You may be surprised to discover that it benefits you even more."

Anderson's followers were worried about his health, but he reassured them that he was fine. He said that people are more interested in hearing lies than the truth, so they shouldn't worry about him being sick. Anderson let his followers know that he was back and there was no need to worry about him.

The article was published not long after Anderson was penalized a sum of £1,345 for having illegal drugs with him. He was caught with a variety of substances inside a Hampstead pub on Boxing Day 2023.

The website Mail Online reported that law enforcement officials were alerted to a situation where a pub manager suspected that there were fumes of crack cocaine emanating from the disabled restroom after Anderson had used it.

For those who are new to the service, the price is £8.99 per month after a complimentary trial period. The plan will continue to renew automatically until it is cancelled.

According to reports, the English performer, who has also performed in The Revenant and the Kevin Hart flick Lift, was brought to a police station. The police reportedly discovered crack cocaine, amphetamines, diazepam, and pregabalin.

Anderson accepted responsibility for having class A crack cocaine, class B amphetamines, and two class C prescription substances.

It is believed that the lawyer representing the actor informed the court that Anderson did not use crack cocaine and allegedly stated: "You may have seen the accused in a very demanding role on a recent TV series. He is often recognised and strives to please fans of the show by embodying the character."

"He was acknowledged on Boxing Day and attempted to impress these individuals - and because of his way of living, individuals frequently offer him incentives."
