|

Whoopi Goldberg has never been shy about her past drug use, but TMZ has unearthed a recording of Goldberg from 1992 admitting that she smoked a “wonderful joint” just before the Oscar ceremony where she won for Best Supporting Actress in 1991 for Ghost.

During a recording session for he 1992 film The Pagemaster, Whoopi talked about how she smoked her own homegrown weed just before heading to the ceremony. “Honey, when he said my name and I popped up, I though ‘Oh, f—!” Whoopi explained. While Whoopi’s acceptance speech didn’t seem all that unusual, it was obvious to at least one person that she has been under the influence. “My mother called me and said ‘You smoked, didn’t  you? Your eyes were just glistening.’” Whoopi said. The full recording and Whoopi’s acceptance speech are over on TMZ. We’re sure Elisabeth Hasselbeck is all out of sorts over this today.
