Idris Elba Admits Smoking Weed On The Set Of The Wire



British actor Idris Elba admitted being stoned during the filming of some scenes on the set of The Wire. What’s more, Elba said that those were his best scenes.

Idris played drug dealer Stringer Bell from 2002 to 2004, and he said that he was smoking marijuana with his colleague Wood Harris all the time between takes.

Elba told rock magazine Q, “Wood is a big pot smoker, proper. We’d sit in the trailer going over these very complex scenes and he’d burn all the time.”

“One scene was pushed back and we sat in the trailer, burning and burning and playing music. The next thing you know, we’re on the set high as a kite. But it was one of the best scenes you’ve ever seen in your life.”

However, Elba and Wood aren’t the only weed smokers among celebrities. Many stars admitted smoking weed such as Oprah Winfrey, Jay Z, George Clooney, Lady Gaga, among others.

Even the most influential person in the world, Barack Obama, admitted to smoking weed as a teen.
