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.

    Wow, such hatred toward marijuana users. As they reach for another beer.

    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.

      Bull puckey. There is no evidence anywhere on God's green earth that says that weed weakens heart muscles.

    Susan Sarandon has every right to get high. Big deal, I know enough people that out-do her on a daily basis that I'm just not surprised.

    I don't blame her. And maybe it's medicinal, maybe not. Matters not to me. I wish pot was legal in most of states . It's a lot safer and better than all the other choices out there.

    I guess all the actual journalists were busy today and none could come to write on whether its for medication or that she is actually bragging about getting high in public without being arrested...

    Self medicating is from the beginning. Even lesser animals do it. It provides amazing relief from shoulder tension and stress which I suspect is one of her reasons for toking.

    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?

      Then perhaps you should avoid articles about her. Seems obvious when you think about it.

      Bullwinkle, the only one stupider than you in the cartoon is Boris. And as a result, your opinion matters little. Susan is a great actor and also hot, in her day. Don't give a s**t what she smokes, love her and her movies.
