Top 10 surprising celebrity stoners.
Posted on September 29 2015
So I thought I’d do a Buzzfeed-esque countdown of celebrities you might me surprised to learn smoke weed. Everyone is fully aware of the likes of Snoop Dog smoking, but what about people you might not suspect? In true talking heads-countdown-television style, I’ll start at 10 and work down to the most surprising.
10. Justin Timberlake
My number ten is the curly headed prince of pop, Justin Timberlake. He looks like Garfunkel Jr. here, and whilst I wouldn’t be surprised if I learnt Garfunkel Sr. liked a smoke, the idea of this guy doing it, especially with this hair, kind of cracks me up. JT had this to say on the matter: “The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking.” Maybe that explains the hair in those days.
9. Harrison Ford
Ok, maybe this one isn’t that surprising, after all Harrison Ford is as cool as fuck. But I like to think of it more as Hans Solo being stoned whilst operating the Millennium Falcon.
8. Michael Bloomberg
Former Mayer of NY, Michael Bloomberg says he”couldn’t feel more strongly” about continuing the prohibition of marijuana. This stance makes the fact he once smoked weed all the more surprising.
7. Oliver Stone.
I was pretty surprised to learn SK has spoken openly about smoking weed, and his belief it should be legalised. I don’t really know why. I mean the link between marijuana and creativity has been around since Shakespeare (and probably longer). It’s more just a case of, can you picture this guy smoking a fat one? This guy?
5. Barbra Streisand
Good old babs. She strikes me as kind of neurotic. Maybe that’s caused by smoking weed? But then maybe she’s too neurotic to smoke it in the first place. Chickens and eggs and Babs getting stoned. That’s number 5.
4. Morgan Freeman
He’s a gold medalist olympian. He’s smoked weed. He’s number 3.
2. George Clooney
He’s one of the suavest, smoothest mofos in the world. I just google-imaged him and he was basically always wearing a suit. Yet he once said “I drank the bong water.” Weird mental picture. You’re number 2 Clooney.
I had such a massive crush on Rachel circa series 1-3. I mean all of them, but those 3 especially. I remember this one episode wear she was wearing these knee-high socks. Add weed into that and she’s too good to be true.
