Because today is a day that ends in “y,” it’s about that time to ask the following: Does Angelina Jolie smoke weed? Let’s find out.
Who is Angelina Jolie?
Angelina Jolie was born Angelina Voight on June 4, 1975, in Los Angeles. She was immediately inducted into Hollywood royalty as the progeny of actors John Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. She made her acting debut alongside her father in the 1995 film “Lookin’ to Get Out.”
This was quickly followed by notable roles in “Hackers” (1995), “Foxfire” (1996), “George Wallace” (1997) and the HBO television movie “Gia” (1998), the latter two of which earned her her first Golden Globe awards.
Since then, Jolie has been a critical and commercial darling, nominated for numerous awards for indie darlings like her role as a sociopathic, damaged patient in “Girl, Interrupted” to action/adventure blockbusters like the “Tomb Raider” franchise.
Besides her extensive filmography, Jolie is known in the press for her humanitarian aid as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations, and her directorial turn for efforts like “Unbroken” and “By the Sea.”
Jolie is also known for her headline-making personal life, especially when it comes to her marriage to fellow A-lister Brad Pitt. Or, as it stands, their divorce.
And believe it or not, the question “does Angelina Jolie smoke weed?” has a lot to do with her former spouse.
Puff or Pass?
The answer lies in Jolie’s split with her now ex-husband, A-lister Brad Pitt. Why you might wonder? Easy: one of the myriad reasons for their divorce was because Pitt smoked too much weed. In light of this, it seems unlikely that Angelina is the type of person who’d toke.
As we reported last year, inside sources told members of the press that the Hollywood icon was “fed up” with Brad’s pot-smoking ways, which was one of many “irreconcilable differences” that lead to the couple’s split. If you want a couple of examples, then you’re in luck.
Pitt himself admitted to dropping out of college due to his purely psychological dependence on weed. (Considering a physiological dependence on weed is virtually impossible, this is kind of impressive in a pathetic way?)
Pitt put it succinctly about his cannabis heydays himself. At the time, he felt himself “just turning into a doughnut.” This, understandably, influenced him to cut back. (Pure poetry, amirite.)
While the influence of Pitt’s pot use certainly fails a journalistic equivalent of the Bechdel test, it must be noted that Jolie’s rumored past drug use doesn’t seem to support the notion that Jolie is a regular toker.
Despite whispers of a heroin habit in the late nineties, she has remained adamant about her drug-free history. The most recent evidence of this? A biography about former actress and studio executive Sherry Lansing.
Final Hit: Does Angelina Jolie Smoke Weed?
So, does Angelina Jolie smoke weed? We’re going to go with a solid “no” here. However, we can’t blame her.
It’d be remiss of us to note that Jolie’s concern—and ensuing disdain—over Pitt’s weed habit wasn’t a case of puritanical morality, but her concern over the safety of their children while under his supervision. Angelina Jolie knows it best: If you’re going to smoke weed, smoke responsibly.
