Smoke a lil bit, drink a lil bit. It just might help you be better at your craft, according to many entertainers.
Now Jordan Peele joins the list of stars who say marijuana helped hone their talents.
While writing the Oscar-Winning movie ‘Get Out’ director Jordan Peele says he smoked a little weed.
Peele who snatched up his first Academy Award for Best Screenplay in “Get Out” on Sunday, says he cultivated inspiration while writing the award-winning horror flick.
The comedian, actor, writer, director, and his directorial debut “Get Out” were also victorious at the prestigious Film Independent Spirit Awards, where he nabbed two of the night’s biggest prizes, Best Director and Best Feature.
“This project didn’t start as a statement, it began as me wanting to make film in my favorite genre,” Peele explained during his acceptance speech at the Spirit Awards. “I sat down, and I would smoke a little bit of weed while I try to write a mind-bending horror film. At some point, I just followed the truth and realized there are people that are locked up for smoking less weed than I smoked while I wrote the movie.”
However while this news may be new to you Peele is a weed connoisseur.. Nothing new here.
