The actress said according to E Online that when Denzel Washington called her name, "I popped up, I thought, 'Oh [expletive]...okay, up the stairs ... around to the podium … there's millions of people, pick up the statue, get the statue."
It's been twenty years since Goldberg accepted the award but the news that she was high at the time is going around the entertainment world after TMZ revealed that the actress dropped the news way back in 1992 during a voice-over recording session for the movie, "The Pagemaster."
S2S Magazine quotes Goldberg:
"I thought, 'I've got to relax,' so I smoked this wonderful joint, that was the last of my home grown," Whoopi candidly revealed. "And honey, when he said my name and I popped up I thought, 'Oh f**k.'"
Goldberg won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
