Remember when you were told that marijuana would turn you into a burnout? These actors who smoke weed prove it’s about the person, not the plant.
It’s no secret that weed is popular among artists. Some actors and musicians even make it part of their entire persona. But more often than not, these are just people who smoke weed for a bunch of different reasons, all while excelling at their craft. Here are 10 of the most successful actors who smoke weed.
If God himself likes to light up every now and then, how it could it be bad? Freeman told a reporter in that his first wife got him into weed, and since then, he loves it. His favorite way to consume it? However he can. Earlier this year he told the Daily Beast, “I’ll eat it, drink it or snort it!”
Not only does Brad Pitt Smoke weed, Quentin Tarintino used weed to help coax the actor into appearing in Inglorious Basterds. He has said recently that he’s had to cut down on the recreational smoking though, on account of his house full of children.
When she’s not campaigning for Bernie Sanders, or making guest appearances on Rick and Morty, there a good chance Sarandon is relaxing with some weed. She first tried weed in the late sixties, toward the end of her college career. Other than a brief hiatus when her kids were young, weed’s been a lifelong companion of Sarandon’s.
Don’t let his stern demeanor as Captain Picard fool you, Patrick Stewart likes to let loose with weed almost every day. Ever since a doctor prescribed him a cannabis spray for his arthritis, cannabis has been part of Stewart’s daily routine.
Silverman has been pretty open about her love of weed for a while. By ‘pretty open’ we mean, she smokes weed a lot and does not care at all who knows it. Silverman even whipped out her vape on the red carpet at the Oscars and talked about smoking weed with other comedians.
Charlize Theron told Howard Stern in June that she doesn’t smoke that much weed anymore, but for a big chunk of her career, Theron describes herself as a “wake-and-baker.” While a big chunk of her twenties was spent with weed, now she says she’s content with being a mom and going to bed early. She has told fans recently how good their weed smells, and awhile ago, a paparazzi snapped a photo of the South African actress taking a rip out of an apple pipe.
Harrelson said earlier this year that he’s taking a break from weed, but he’s been a lifelong advocate. Even going as far as serving as on the advisory board of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. His activism has even landed him in trouble with the law. In 1996 Harrelson was arrested in Kentucky for planting hemp seeds. He’s also used weed to get through a stressful dinner with a certain former reality TV star. Even though he doesn’t smoke it right now, he still a strong supporter of cannabis.
Jane Fonda is one of the most famous actresses to come out of Hollywood. She has a long career in film and activism, so her love of weed can be eclipsed by the brightness of her star. Like many of the Vietnam activists in the 60’s and 70’s, Fonda smoked weed, in part to rail against the establishment. Recently, she told Dujour magazine that she still smokes weed “every now and then”
Harrison Ford hasn’t talked about his weed habits in public that much, but there are enough stories from reliable sources to assume Ford is a full-blown enthusiast. Carrie Fisher said in her memoir that Ford shared weed with her onset of Star Wars, and Han solo’s weed was so good she says she forgot most of 1976. Gregg Proops has said that he and Ford were taking a car together to a shoot, and Ford’s enthusiasm for weed reared its head in a strange way. Ford ran out of papers, so he put his weed in a saucepan, warmed it up, and took hits out of the smoking pan in the car. It’s hard to believe Han Solo didn’t have enough money to pack up a pack of zig-zags.
George Clooney might be one of the most famous stars in the world and one of the most private. Like Harrison Ford, Clooney is notoriously tight-lipped about smoking weed, and his private life generally. But, when Ocean’s 13 shot in Amsterdam, one of the cannabis coffee shop owners said Clooney was a regular customer. Plus, Clooney’s good friend (and fellow list member) Brad Pitt, has outed him too.
