Susan Sarandon Was Stoned at ‘Almost All’ the Award Shows

Say What!? 10

Susan Sarandon is an amazing actress, which means that she’s been nominated for quite a few awards during her decades-long career. Over 41 years of acting, she’s racked up five Emmy, seven Golden Globe, and five Oscar nominations. That’s a lot of award shows to attend, and even more acceptance speeches to sit through.

On Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday, the seasoned star revealed her secret to taking it all in stride. When host Andy Cohen asked her to name a major Hollywood event that she was stoned at, she responded, “Only one?” Then she laughed and said, “I would say almost all except the Oscars.”

Well there you go.

Sarandon is an outspoken advocate for legal pot, telling HuffPost Live earlier this year, “I would like to see everybody be able to smoke pot.”

Oh Hollyweird, you never cease to amuse me.

In other interesting Sarandon news, Cohen also asked her if she’d consider posing nude for Playboy (please God no). She said:

"They haven't asked me in about five years. They used to ask me on a regular basis," she revealed. "I wanted to do it pregnant but they weren't game. That was before everyone else started doing it pregnant. But I have sons now [so] I can't really [do it.] When Lincoln Center did a thing and they showed a lot of my [old clips], my sons said, 'Didn't it ever occur to you that you would have children?' Then I asked my youngest, 'Are you okay?' And he said, 'Yeah, but scarred, Mom.'"

"So at this point, I can't really say I didn't know where they stood," Sarandon joked. "So it's not worth it and I'm really not that interested."

I can’t say I’m really that interested either.

Will you be looking for Susan Sarandon and signs that she’s high as a kite at Hollywood’s next red carpet event?

How old are you now? Act your age and stop looking for attention and/or publicity.

Jenny, you should get stoned some time. It might loosen you up and make you stop being such a bitch.

Not a big deal.  Obviously she behaved normally and appropriately at the events.

Ha! What an ironically airbrushed photo of Ms. Sarandon accompanies this piece. It's horribly done, for starters, because the whites of her eyes are about as white as snow and her skin is interestingly wrinkle-free...but, I would think that in an article about a pot-smoker, they would leave the blood vessels/red eyes in to emphasize the headline!! :D

Doesn't surprise me one bit, she's as liberal as they come

Is there anything funnier (or more purposeless) than a complete and thorough stoner trying to convince you they know more about politics than you do? There was never any reason to respect her political observations in the first place. Now its downright hilarious.

You're an IDIOT Robert.


Dealing with constant criticism of your outfit/shoes/hair/make up, what you say, how you walk, how you talk with the popping of lights from cameras, folks screaming your name or trying to touch you, microphones thrust into your face for quotes or answers to inane questions...who wouldn't be high?  I'm surprised ANYONE is even sober at the awards show.  ***Good for her!***
