Whoopi:

I Smoked WEED

Before My Oscar Speech!

3/24/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Whoopi Goldberg

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. 

Whoopi Goldberg WeedAfter 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."

Check out Whoopi's speech -- can you tell she was baked?

she smoked weed to calm down? so coaxing herself to be in front of people is normal? why do people smoke pot anyways? and why do pot heads think there's nothing wrong with it?

Proving was again that she is pure trash. Once trash always trash. Why she is still on the air is beyond me. Can't stand that stupid talk show the View. Just a bunch of old hags that talk over each other. I don't know how that show stays on the air. Every one of those women make me sick, so so sad!!!

its really cute, iam sure most people think that smoking dope is no big deal. unless your young and go on to stronger drugs, looking for a higher high. most addicts started with harmless weed. its so funny how cig smoking is being outlawed in all states because smoking is bad for you and the people around the smoker, but the smoke from weed is harmless and everyone wants it to be legal. i know i will catch hell over my opinion, but iam sick of seeing all the people dying from drugs, and famous people making it sound harmless.
