Gaga was born to a family of Italian Americans in 1986 in New York. Since she was a kid, music has been part of her life and she started rumbling stages during her adolescent years. She studied at NYU and got a taste of higher learning prior to dropping out and devoting her life to performance and music…but, she probably inhaled mucho hierba on campus before she departed!
Lady Gaga’s love of cannabis was made evident during Gaga: Five Foot Two, a Netflix documentary in which she discusses her fibromyalgia problems and relationship with marijuana. She’s too known for her illustrious puffing session in front of Beyonce. During a 60 Minutes interview with Anderson Cooper, Gaga stated: “I smoke a lot of pot when I write music.

That’s right, “God” likes to blaze trees! Born June 1, 1937, in pre-civil-rights Memphis, TN, Freeman has been intensively acting since the delicate age of 9 and at 12 won a state drama competition. Eventually, he went on to overwhelm Hollywood featuring in motion pictures such as Lean on Me, Invictus, The Dark Knight, The Shawshank Redemption, and Million Dollar Baby.
When tunneling a bit deeper into this intriguing individual, you’ll soon sniff out about his zeal for weed. He is a vocal activist for decriminalization and has asserted his belief that marijuana should be federally legal throughout the United States. Back in 2012, Freeman told Newsweek that he felt penalization for cannabis possession is just plain stupid: “It’s just the stupidest law possible, given the history. You don’t stop people from doing what they want to do, so forget about making it unlawful. You’re just making criminals out of people who aren’t engaged in criminal activity. And we’re spending zillions of dollars trying to fight a war we can’t win! We could make zillions, just legalize it and tax it like we do liquor. It’s stupid.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger has witnessed surge after surge of success in his life, from solidifying his name as an icon on the bodybuilding circuit to performing in motion pictures such as Predator, Last Action Hero, Total Recall, Commando, and The Terminator.

So when he says “I’ll be back,” he means he’s just going to the nearest 7-11 to get some munchie snacks and Zig-Zags!
Oh yeah, pimpin’ Clooney made our Celebrities You Most Likely Didn’t Know Smoked Weed list! George Clooney is renowned for his box office sensations such as Thin Red Line, Out of Sight, Three Kings, Money Monster, and Ocean’s Eleven. Evidently, Clooney’s known around towns for much more than his thespian talents!
While in Amsterdam filming Oceans Twelve, the proprietor of an outlying weed shop told news outlets that the actor was no stranger to them. It’s been reported too that Clooney stops by that same shop numerous times a year. We wonder, what’s Clooney’s forte – edibles? buds? vape? As suave and groovy as Clooney is, we’re going to say he’s a grass guy…indica too, Purple Kush more than likely!
Doesn’t Jennifer Lawrence possess that guiltless-face, ‘girl next door’ swag? Well, don’t be hoodwinked, for looks can be deceiving! In 2013, Lawrence was photographed blazing a joint in Hawaii. Then in 2015, she admitted she once smoked pot before attending the Academy Awards. Lawrence said: “I saw my brother smoking out of a bong before one of the Oscars. I won’t say which.” She then conceded she took “a little hit” from her bro’s bong.
The ultimate is when Lawrence shared a tale about how she wigged out on reefer while at Ellen DeGeneres‘ 60th birthday party and wound up having a physical altercation with a woman. “I went to the Port-a-Potty to go pee, and there was a woman there, and she was like, ‘No, no, no, go on, go ahead!’ I was like, ‘No, you were here first. You go!’ And she was like, ‘Go!'” The Hunger Games actress soon made the assumption that the lady permitted her to go ahead of her because she had to do a “number 2.” Lawrence, therefore, came out of the Port-a-Potty and told the woman she could use it instead. The woman apparently laughed it off and denied having to poop. Nevertheless, the two’s interaction suddenly took a turn down a dark road. “All of a sudden security is grabbing me because what I hadn’t realized is I am grabbing this woman by the shoulders, shaking her, screaming, ‘You have to poop! You have to poop!’ And the security guard is laughing so hard because he heard the whole exchange, and he’s like, ‘You can’t grab her, but I agree, she has to poop!’ [The security guard] and I are just on the ground laughing. And the woman finally started laughing and I was just like, ‘Just poop!'”
Remember LoveStoned/I Think She Knows? Now we fully grasp why JT named it that…because he be stoned! When Justin Timberlake was asked by Playboy if he smokes cannabis, he replied with: “Absolutely.” Wait, he wasn’t done there though! JT added: “The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking. Sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off. Some people are just better high.”
The Cry Me a River singer claims he began smoking pot at the age of 13 to grapple with the cancellation of the Mickey Mouse Club. “I started getting in trouble. I smoked pot for the first time. I got myself a can of tobacco and almost got expelled for that,” Timberlake said about the hit show’s cancellation. Clearly JT is no rookie when it comes to blowing trees, but his clean-cut, dancy, boy band image is sure as shooting why he made our list of Celebrities You Most Likely Didn’t Know Smoked Weed.
Yes, Kirsten Dunst is the ideal celeb to cap our Celebrities You Most Likely Didn’t Know Smoked Weed list. But don’t be fooled by her endearing face – she enjoys getting her Cheech on! Dunst even puffed weed on the set of Woodshock. Rather than smoking on a fake movie set joint, she managed to somehow get her mitts on some fire. “I was like crying, laughing, eating a peanut butter sandwich,” Dunst told Jimmy Kimmel. In fact, Dunst was so lit that she had to be sent home from the set that day!
When it comes to ganja, Dunst isn’t new to it, she’s true to it. Back in 2007, the actress told MTV: “I do like weed. I have a different outlook on marijuana than America does. My best friend Sasha’s dad was Carl Sagan, the astronomer. He was the biggest pot smoker in the world and he was a genius. I think America’s view on weed is ridiculous. I mean — are you kidding me? If everyone smoked weed, the world would be a better place.” See what we mean…Dunst rules!
