It was on Wednesday’s taping of Jimmy Kimmel that Charlize Theron, one of the stars of the new movie “Gringo” that hits theaters on Friday, admitted that she uses marijuana.
The blonde bombshell said that she and her mother Gerda have both used marijuana to help with their unconventional sleeping patterns.
“I’m always willing to try anything. You got one life to live, why not?” Theron said.
“I have really bad sleep [patterns] and so does my mom. We do take sleep medication and I was saying to her, ‘Maybe we should try a sleeping strain, something that could help us with sleep.’ ”
“I really thought I would be the responsible one to have to go and get that. Last week she showed up at my house, literally drove in her little tennis outfit and brought me a little container and just left it on my kitchen table.”
“She said, ‘I went to the store by myself’,” Theron explained. “I have this image of her in the store. She’s just not this kind of person and buying marijuana … she had like a full experience.”
Theron recalled, “I had like eight solid years on the marijuana and then my chemistry just changed one day. I found myself frozen in front of my fridge for like eight hours. I couldn’t speak and it just wasn’t fun anymore so I kind of had to stop and I would be around edibles and would try it, but then it was still the same thing.”
The star lives in California where the sale of recreational marijuana is legal.
