Bob Marley would have been proud.
Actress Cameron Diaz, promoting her new film Bad Teacher on Tuesday’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, had this message to share with America: “Weed is Awesome!”
Diaz, 38, was telling Fallon about her racy character in the film, a wayward junior high teacher named Elizabeth Halsey.
According to Diaz, Elizabeth is obsessed with getting a boob job, drinks on the job and encourages another teacher to get high.
“I’m like, ‘Hold it in, hold it in!’ … Weed is awesome! … that was what my character says, that’s not what I say,” Diaz joked.
“Nice save there,” Fallon said.
“I think this weed — this movie — Freudian [slip]!” Diaz said.
Bad Teacher co-star Justin Timberlake recently admitted that he has smoked a doobie. Timberlake last week told Playboy he “absolutely” smokes marijuana as “some people are just better high.”
Bad Teacher, which co-stars Jason Segel, opens nationwide Friday.
