Whoopi Goldberg smoked a BIG, FAT JOINT before she won her Oscar in 1991 — and was stoned off her ass during the victory speech … so said the actress herself in never-before-seen footage obtained by TMZ.
An unabashed Whoopi dropped the bombshell during a voice-over recording session for the movie, “The Pagemaster” back in 1992.
Whoopi explained how she smoked a “wonderful joint” to help calm her nerves before winning the Best Supporting Actress award for “Ghost” … and was so high during the award show, she had to mentally coach herself on to the stage.
After the Oscars, Goldberg says she got a call from her mother — who could tell Whoopi had smoked weed because of her “glistening eyes.”
Whoopi noted, “Just because I do it doesn’t mean you should do it.”
