Susan Sarandon's been high at most awards shows

For Susan Sarandon, the Golden Globes aren't the only opportunity to get loose at an awards show.

The 67-year-old actress revealed to Bravo's Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live!" Wednesday that when it comes to major Hollywood events, she tends to arrive flying higher than the rest.

"Name one major Hollywood event that you showed up to stoned," Cohen asked Sarandon last night.

"Only one?" Sarandon replied, laughing. "I would say, almost all except the Oscars."

We know she hasn't been nominated for any SAG Awards or Golden Globes, but please, please awards show producers - make sure you invite Susan Sarandon in 2014.

    Drug addiction would explain why Susan Sarandon went from growing up in a Christian home (at least her mother is a nice Christian lady) to living in and toating the Hollywood party line like the rest of the human robots who populate the movie industry.

      Drug addiction? Marijuana is not addictive, unlike many prescription drugs, that are also way more dangerous with serious and sometimes deadly side effects. There are a LOT of people addicted to these drugs, do you want to talk about them?

      It is a shame that there are still people out there that think Marijuana is a physically addictive drug. One day, maybe, science will prevail and people can dismiss this myth much like masturbation will make you go blind myth.

    Between the observer and keep it real ....Brilliant ! Thank you!! maybe you guys opened up a narrow uneducated mind or two. Oh and why on earth do some people blame EVERYTHING on Obama? Why is it so tough to focus on the original subject." Marijuana" which has been around for hundreds of years before Obama. Maybe they should take a toke or two and lose the anger.

    Susan might not boast so much if she saw a CT scan of her brain. Chronic pot use most certainly damages brain cells. I'm sure she's noticed a drop in cognitive skills. Given her job it probably doesn't matter. It's her life to do as she pleases. Genius she is not.

    Typical liberal adult acting like a teenager, getting high in order to "function" like the adult she SHOULD be. Can you imagine this mother being a role model for her kids with an admission like this? Liberals just think they are so cool admitting to behaving like a child; they think it makes them relevant. Susan grow up & become a relevant woman and shut your stupid mouth.

    • Keep it real

      Lynda... Come on, are you an serious!!!.... You sound like Ann Coulter... just some idiot yelling, "Liberal this , Liberal that". Many people use various drugs from day to day, legal and illegal. She smokes pot for God's sake. I get sick of people condemning pot smokers while they are popping their "prescription pills" or conversing over alcoholic drinks. How many people do you think consider themselves "non-liberals" consume alcohol or abuse prescription pills?? Millions!! If you don't think so, then maybe you're high!! More babies are being born in this country with prescription addiction than anything else. Its like the 5', 400lb woman telling someone they shouldn't smoke because it's bad for them.
      Pot is the most natural, unprocessed of ALL. Have you witnessed detox from any of these drugs?? Pot detox makes you grumpy, alcohol and prescription drugs are hell!!! Patients get convulsions, delusional, and possibly die from the detox process. Pot has been found helpful in multiple medicinal purposes; PTSD, Migraines, Cancer patients, day to day stress reliever. When is alcohol beneficial??? With all of the side effects from consuming alcohol, prescription pills, meth, cocaine, and heroin, makes pot safer by far. Even the synthetic pot is far worse than the real stuff. This is a big problem in the military, and among first responders, because these synthetics are harder to detect with drug testing.
      I want you to think about how much marijuana gets smoked in each medium size town everyday. Then think about how many of these towns make up this country (tens of thousands). Where is it all coming from? How is it getting here? News Flash... Drug Cartels and Dirty politicians!!!. Plus, we don't know what's in this stuff!!.
      I understand parents don't want their children smoking pot. But what parent wants to see their children doing any drugs?
      THE PRIMARY PEOPLE THAT WANT POT ILLEGAL ARE THE DRUG CARTELS AND THE DIRTY POLITICIANS. Oh, I left out a group "the dealers", because if it were legal they would have to get a job and pay taxes!!!
      So, we can legalize it and tax it, or we can continue supporting these ***holes.
      I'm 42 years old, and making around 90k a year (legally). If I want to smoke a bowl, or eat a pot brownie after a 12 hour shift of helping people, and in the privacy of my own home, in this so called "land of the free", I think I should be able to. I should be able to do this without some HOLIER-THAN-THOU, telling me that I'm a bad person!!! Idiots!!!
      I've taken enough of your time, now I'll let you go back to your closed minded thinking and supporting your drug cartels, dirty politicians, and local drug dealers (who don't pay a dime in taxes). The Defense rests!!!

  36. TheObserver

    Is there anyone out there who seriously thinks that ANY celebrities are sober for their award shows? They are essentially professional parties that happen to get broadcasted on TV. What separates Susan Sarandon is that she actually has the stones to admit that she's high.

    Here's what cracks me up. She could've kept on going to said award shows high and nobody would've noticed. Obviously very few people did notice. But, marijuana haters, and/or Susan Sarandon haters will now retro-actively bash Susan Sarandon and label any of her sub-par work the result of "being high". Revisionist history is great isn't it.

    People in America get uncomfortable when others don't conform to the media-reinforced stereotypes that they're "supposed" to conform to. In America, there is one acceptable description of someone who smokes pot. It must be a lazy, dysfunctional, slow-speaking, unmotivated, couch-potato. This is the description that American anti-pot propaganda has worked tirelessly to establish, quite successfully I might add.

    Here's the truth. Thousands of highly functional, productive, creative, motivated people in America smoke pot. Thousands more than you think. There's nothing wrong with them. They're fine. They're just not a very vocal sub-group because they'd rather not waste their time trying to idly debate ignorant worn-out stereotypes. They also don't feel like being ostracized and outcast for something so trivial, so they don't broadcast their stance to everyone. But they are there. We all know it. More than half of us think it should be legalized, but less than half of us admit it. So what's the problem, marijuana or the pressure of social conformity?

    So helpless... are you already heavy users? Let me help you: Google "Marijuana IQ loss" and it'll yield about a bazillion results. I recommend the Dunedin Study of a birth cohort of 1,037 individuals followed from birth (1972/1973) to age 38. See how easy it is to ascertain the reality of permanent irreversible cognitive impairment? There's also Wikipedia, which can help you see that filterless longer deeper inhalation may be more damaging than nicotine. I'd love to give a doctoral thesis complete with citations, but C N N has space constraints. Party on!
