Whoopi Goldberg: “I Smoked Pot Before Oscar Speech”

In an old video of The View co-host, which surfaced in the Internet Thursday, she admitted she was stoned while accepting the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Ghost.

“Smoking cigarettes and pot every now and then are my habits. And I thought, ‘I’ve got to relax.’ So I smoked this wonderful joint that was the last of my home grown,” Goldberg explains in the video posted by TMZ. “

When he [presenter Denzel Washington] said my name and I popped up, I thought, ‘Oh f—…okay, up the stairs … around to the podium … there’s millions of people, pick up the statue, get the statue,” she said.

While the actress was poised in her acceptance speech, she says her mother could tell her daughter was stoned because of her “glistening eyes” and later called to scold her.

“I know you’re not supposed to admit that you smoke pot, but I don’t drink alcohol,” Goldberg says on the tape. “Just because I do it doesn’t mean you should.”
