Brad Pitt played a pot smoker in 1993’s True Romance and admits life imitated art for him until just recently.
“I certainly had my day,” Brad, 45, told HBO’s Bill Maher in an interview Friday after the Real Time host called the actor’s role “one of the best stoner performances.”
Bill Maher — who was grilling the actor on his upcoming flick Inglourious Basterds — also recounted a New Year’s Eve party at which he says he witnessed Brad rolling “the most perfect” joints he had ever seen. Brad’s playful response? “I’m an artist.”
Brad revealed that he kicked the habit for his six children – Maddox, 7, Pax, 5, Zahara, 4, Shiloh, 3, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 1.
“I’m a dad now. You want to be alert and my eyes used to glaze over when I did that,” he told Bill Maher.
Brad recently told Parade magazine his smoking got in the way of work.
“I liked to smoke a bit of grass at the time, and I became very sheltered. Then I got bored,” he told the magazine. “I was turning into a damn doughnut, really. So I moved as far away from that as I could. I was done.”
Good for him!
