What are some of the most ludicrous things that celebrities have ever done when they are high? If you think jumping into a pool and some other funny stuff that you yourself have done when high is one of the most stupid things ever, wait till you get a glimpse of what life looks like when you are a celebrity and stoned. Of course, most of them have managed to get away with it, just make sure you do not try to pull that stunt though. Especially when you don’t have the funding to get out of jail, or bail yourself out of rehab.
Maybe being a celebrity is one of the main reasons why some of the things these guys do when they are high are blown out of proportion. Considering that some of us might have done the same, or even worse, but it never gets mentioned anywhere other than in our closest circle of friends, some of these might appear like really normal stuff to you, so perhaps the difference might be nothing but status.
We narrowed down some of the hilarious and crazy things that celebrities do when they are stoned, and you will definitely see them in a different light, if you didn’t already!
10. Ben Affleck Flirts With Interviewer
When promoting your new or upcoming show, it is common knowledge that you should be on your best behavior and try as much as you can to impress those in attendance. Sponsors and prospective investors might be around. Apparently, Ben Affleck never got that memo! While promoting Jersey Girl, he showed up high for an interview, and went on to flirt with the interviewer. As if things could not get any worse, he made her sit on his lap, charmed and groped her. The icing on this stoned cake was when he made stupid comments about those who are living with cerebral palsy.
9. Anna Nicole Smith’s Famous AMA Speech
What do you do when everyone thinks you are a gold digger? Especially when no one really cares about who you are, where you’re from or what you’re doing in the industry in the first place? This is the situation that befell one Anna Nicole Smith. In order to improve her reputation in an industry that is all about reputation, she took to the drink on her show, adding weight in the process. So sad was her plight that she once asked the crowd while presenting during the American Music Awards, if they liked her body. Needless to say, a toxic combination of prescription drugs ended her life.
8. Danny DeVito Calls George Bush “Numb Nuts”
Guys, if you ever have to get high and act, be or prove to everyone that you are stupid, leave the president out of it. Better yet, do as much as you want with the president’s name, but for heaven’s sake, leave his wife out of it! That’s the first lesson chapter in Stupid Husband 101! Danny DeVito, having had one (or several) too many, decided to call President George Bush numb nuts! Wait, he wasn’t done yet…proceeded to make fun of then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and claimed to have hooked up with his wife Rhea Perlman in the White House! We believe the government let the wife handle that problem!
7. James Brown Sings Answers To An Interviewer
One thing that crack, weed, alcohol and any other drug we can conjure up have proven in the past is the fact that however mighty you are, however important you are, they have the power to turn you into their b**ch. All you have to do is indulge. The Godfather of Soul, James Brown did have an incredible story, funny and hilarious though it was. Having shot at his wife with a handgun, the visibly high James found it easier to respond to interviewers’ questions in a way he understood best, by singing his response. He even proceeded to address and talk to his “colleagues”, who were not anywhere in sight!
6. Nicolas Cage Gets High With His Cat
Nicolas Cage is one of those stars who has had an amazing run in the industry, to the point where at times it is not easy to figure out what is wrong with him. Some consider him washed up, others view his career to be as good as over, while there are others who still revel in the legend that was the Matchstick Man. Pot, however, has a whole different story to tell. Cage once smoked weed, with his cat – yes, his cat! Together, the besties ended up eating mushrooms together, and somewhere in their bonding session, Nick insists the cat said Hello to him.
5. Robert Downey Jr. Arrested For Drug Possession
A lot of us know the inquisitive character behind Sherlock Holmes and would never imagine he had a troubled past. Most know Downey as Tony Stark, the wealthy superhero behind Iron Man. These two are the most obvious images that come to mind upon the mention of Robert Downey Jr.’s name. He however has a past, a drug riddled past that he chooses not to talk about in interviews these days. He once described to a judge the sensation of feeling high, saying “It’s like I’ve got a shotgun in my mouth, with my finger on the trigger, and I like the taste of the gun metal.”
4. Drew Barrymore Self Mutilation at 14
What would you do to get away from your mother? We love the mothers we have, and if we don’t we keep it bottled inside until we are grown enough to leave home. Then perhaps we develop the guts to express our feelings to their face. In most cases, life plays its hand and we forgive one another. Not Drew Barrymore, Steven Spielberg’s goddaughter. In a bid to steer clear of mom, she started smoking just after her 10th birthday, was a cocaine addict by 13, and slashed her wrists at 14 years old. Some monster of a mother she must have had, right?
3. Britney Spears Shaves Her Head
Yes, Britney is here again. Maybe we need to have a page dedicated to her (will speak to the editor about this). When we get so high to the point where you decide to shave your hair on live camera, something really is wrong. Swahili people say akili ni nywele, kila mtu ana zake, which loosely translates to the hair denotes brains, and everyone’s is unique! This must have been one of her lowest moments in life, because around the same time, her then-husband Kevin Federline recorded a clip of her saying time travel was possible, and some people were already ahead of us.
2. Seth Rogen Threatens to Smoke Weed in the White House
Seth Rogen is one celebrity who never shies away from controversy. The way he speaks his mind can at times feel quirky, but he is one person you can trust to say it like it is. Of all the things he is proud of, smoking pot with Snoop Dogg is high up on his list. PS: Just in case you are not aware, in the weed world, lighting a blunt with Snoop is like being in the Guinness Book of Records. He admitted his desire to smoke in the White House someday, to which Snoop replied, been there, done that. While Barack was taking care of business! (with doctored graphics to prove it).
1. Fergie Makes A Deal With God
The if you ain’t got no money, take yo broke a** home star of the Black Eyed Peas is on our list because hers is a story of salvation. As they say in the good old book, we never know the day, date or the time when the Son of Man will come back. Fergie, so high on crystal meth, became paranoid that the FBI and SWAT were constantly after her. So, while hiding out from arrest in a church, she talked to God and promised if she stepped out and neither the SWAT nor FBI were waiting for her, she would quit drugs. True story, no one was there, and she’s been clean since then…Hallelujah!!
