The Oscars are coming and we know you’ve been up all night dying to know: who’s used cannabis before? We did all the digging for you to find 8 surprising Oscar nominees who have smoked (or otherwise used) weed. Enjoy!
In an interview with Bill Maher, Brad proclaimed himself an “artist at rolling joints.” He then said that he gave up weed when he became a father. “I’m a dad now. You want to be alert and my eyes used to glaze over when I did that,” Pitt explained. Jury’s out on his relationship with cannabis now that he’s single though…
Rumors swirled about Charlize when she was spotted smoking out of an apple bong in 2002. We’ve all been there, Charlize.
Unlike a majority of his fellow celebrities, LDC isn’t so secretive about using cannabis. In 2016, at the SAG award show where he won his first SAG award, Leonardo famously broke out his vape pen and got high right there during the show. Respect, LDC.
Scarlett and her high school boyfriend were nicknamed the “Cheech & Chong of the Professional Children’s School” on NY’s Upper West Side because they allegedly smoked so much pot during high school. Sounds fancy.
When asked if she uses cannabis, Kathy said, “Yeah, I do. I’ve had a prescription for some time for chronic pain. I’ve really become a believer. I find it just as, if not more, effective than other pain relief. Originally, when I was going through breast cancer, my oncologist prescribed some because my recovery was painful and the marijuana was a tremendous help. And now they have vape pens, which are a lot less caustic in terms of smoke. And since you can control the amount of your intake, you can smoke and be functional during the day—although I don’t smoke when I work. That to me is unprofessional.” Well said, Kathy.
Classic Margot. When she hosted SNL, Margot wore Alexander Wang’s marijuana-inspired Fall 2016 ready-to-wear collection featuring lace cannabis leaves embroidered on the front. Marijuana, but make it fashion.
While shooting in Colorado, Quentin was asked if he smoked pot to which he said “Because it’s legal? Well… yeah… goes with the territory.” This one doesn’t seem that surprising tbh…
In 2005, Joaquin did something that most people don’t do: he checked himself into rehab for alcohol addiction. “I thought rehab was a place where you sat in a jacuzzi and ate fruit salad,” he said. “But when I got there they started talking about the 12 steps and I went: ‘Wait a minute, I’m still gonna smoke weed.'” Also sorry for having to post this frightening pic.
To get into character for his role as the beloved Mr. Rog—lol, just kidding, can you even imagine? Tom is a saint and if he smokes, that’s none of our business. (It would explain why he’s so nice and patient though.)
