Awards shows can seem like interminable events, but Susan Sarandon has apparently found a way to make all those dreary speeches seem a lot more fun: by being stoned!

The Oscar-winning actress, 67, seemed downright casual about her penchant for getting high on Watch What Happens Live Wednesday.

When host Andy Cohen asked her to name one major Hollywood event she showed up to stoned, Sarandon replied, “Only one?” and slapped her knee as the two shared a hearty laugh.

“I would say almost all except the Oscars,” she replied.

That adds up to an awful lot of time in public baked: She has racked up eight Golden Globes and four Emmy nominations during her 43-year career, not to mention five Oscar nods.

We already knew Sarandon had a sense of humor (look no further than her appearance in Motherlover on Saturday Night Live for proof). Now we know how she manages to find things so funny.
