When Whoopi Goldberg won her Best Supporting Actress Oscar for ‘Ghost’ back in 1991, she was high as a kite, according to TMZ. Whoopi dropped the bombshell during a voice-over recording session for the film ‘The Pagemaster’ in 1992, yet the footage hasn’t been seen by the public until now!
In the clip, Whoopi says that smoking, both cigarettes and weed, is a life habit and she admits to having smoked a “wonderful joint” to help calm her nerves before the ceremony, and was so high during the award show, she had to mentally coach herself into getting up on stage to make her acceptance speech. I know that Whoopi has called herself a ‘dope fiend‘ before, but really? Smoking up before perhaps the biggest moment of her career, maybe even her life – does that screams addict rather than just casual smoker?
Whoopi has a pretty relaxed attitude to the whole thing though, laughing as she recalls getting busted by her mother, who called her after the ceremony and could tell she smoked up because of her “glistening eyes.”
But when Whoopi realizes that she is being filmed she also notes, “Just because I do it doesn’t mean you should do it.” Yep, that sure was convincing Whoopi!
