So apparently Whoopi Goldberg isn’t too happy that an old video from August of 1992 (almost 20 years ago) is flying around the internet, showing her admitting that she was stoned when she accepted her Oscar for GHOST.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â In the video, she goes into full detail, saying:
“Smoking cigarettes and pot every now and then are my habits. And I thought, ‘I’ve got to relax.’ So I smoked this wonderful joint that was the last of my home grown,”
The video, shot during a voice-over session for THE PAGEMASTER, has a bit of an anecdote, when Goldberg reveals she was so surprised by her win that she was worried about getting onstage.
“When he [presenter Denzel Washington] said my name and I popped up, I thought, ‘Oh f—… okay, up the stairs… around to the podium… there’s millions of people, pick up the statue, get the statue,”
And almost as though she knew the tape would go public, Goldberg added aÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â nice little PSAÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â to cap off the end:
“I know you’re not supposed to admit that you smoke pot, but I don’t drink alcohol. Just because I do it doesn’t mean you should.”
Check out the video below, and at least chuckle at how it really it true that no matter what you think is said in private, it could always come back…even twenty years later.
