Whoopi: I was a high-functioning drug addict

While her co-hosts may have criticized Charlie Sheen over a recent report that he's skipping rehab to go back to work, Whoopi Goldberg says she understands the decision. "The View" host revealed Wednesday that she was once a high-functioning drug addict.

"He is an alcoholic, he is a drug user,” Goldberg said of Sheen. “He knows he has a lot of people he’s responsible for. Having been a drug addict, I feel I can say this… I was a functioning drug addict, I showed up for work because I knew a lot of people would be out of work and I wouldn’t get a check that I needed to buy my drugs."

Things got so bad for Goldberg that she became terrified to leave her bed for days because she thought something was under it. She even went to the bathroom in her bed.

"In a normal job, if you gain or lose a few pounds, it's no big deal," Fischer, 36, explains. "But in my business you have to tell someone so that the next time you go to a fitting, the clothes are the right size."

Nicole Kidman admits Botox, talks Tom Cruise

Nicole Kidman might be raising eyebrows with her new Marie Claire U.K. interview, in which she admits to using Botox and talks about her marriage to Tom Cruise.

"I tried it, I didn’t like it, so I’ve gone back to my own forehead," the 43-year-old "Rabbit Hole" star says of Botox in the magazine's March issue. "But I’ve never had plastic surgery on my face. People say I have but I haven’t.”

While the Oscar nominee constantly finds herself in the limelight thanks to her acting performances, she says she wasn't looking to become a celebrity when she married Cruise in 1990.
