Whoopi Goldberg won an Academy Award in the best supporting actress category and it seems that the star was high on marijuana when she made her acceptance speech. According to TMZ, Goldberg admitted the use of the drug in 1992 and claimed she only smoked marijuana to be able to calm her nerves on the important night and during the events. The video with the actress talking about this aspect dates back in 1992, but it only was recently obtained by TMZ, who made it public.
“I thought I’ve got to relax so I smoked this wonderful joint, that was the last of my home grown, and honey, when he said my name and I popped up I thought, ‘Oh f***,’” the actress said in the video and Whoopi Goldberg also explained that she doesn’t drink alcohol, although she smokes. However, she kept offering a good advice, as the actress said she does not advocate the use of pot, although she as an adult has it as a habit. But, it seems that that the “Ghost” star felt sorry for being high the night of the events, as she claimed that no one should be in a situation like that when they need to talk publicly. “Never smoke pot before there’s a possibility of having to talk to 100 million people,” Whoopi Goldberg said after explaining that she learned this lesion after the Oscar awards ceremony.
And Whoopi Goldberg also went to explain that the reason why she decided to smoke pot was linked to the fact that she needed to calm herself before the show, but when she actually won the award she though “Oh f*ck” and just tried to control herself through the entire process of going up the stairs and talking in front of millions of people watching the ceremony. But although there might have been many those who did not realize that Whoopi Goldberg was high, there was one person she couldn’t lie to. “My mother called me and she said, ‘You smoked didn’t you?’ ” the actress said and added that she had nothing else to do than to admit it.
However, until now “The View” co-host made no official statements regarding the reports and the video that recently surfaced. But, a reaction from Whoopi Goldberg is definitely expected and will most likely come on her next show.11
