NEW YORK (AP) — The years appear to have tamed Ozzy Osbourne.

The heavy metal singer, who drew headlines and controversy with his outlandish stage antics as the lead singer for Black Sabbath, says he doesn't partake in the wild life anymore.

``I've been blown away (by Hollywood),'' Osbourne told Movieline magazine. ``I don't mix. I don't drink or get stoned anymore, so what's the point? I like to stay home and play with my dogs and my kids. ''

Osbourne stars in the upcoming film ``Little Nicky'' starring Adam Sandler. The comedian left the rocker impressed.

``I didn't realize how in control he is. He's a sweet guy ... and a good guitar player,'' Osbourne said.
