Julia Roberts opens up about the toughest drug she’s tried


Entertainment Desk

Julia Roberts recently appeared on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” and revealed that the hardest drug she’s ever taken is mushrooms. The “Pretty Woman” star participated in the show’s “Plead the Fifth” segment, where guests have to answer at least two out of three questions. When asked about the hardest drug she’s ever tried, Roberts initially hesitated before admitting to trying mushrooms. She described the experience as “nice” but also warned kids not to try it at home.

Roberts also labeled Jen Shah her “least favorite ‘Real Housewife’ of all time” because Shah went to prison for running a nationwide telemarketing scheme that targeted the elderly. However, when asked to rank three “iconic Julia Roberts films,” she declined to answer.

Over 30 years ago, Roberts had to dispel rumors that she “had a problem with drugs” when she called off her wedding to Kiefer Sutherland just three days before they were set to say “I do” and was subsequently hospitalized for five days with the flu. She emphasized that she never did “any drugs” and called the rumors “absurd and frustrating.”

Roberts also candidly spoke about the topic when she starred in the 2018 film “Ben Is Back,” which centered around a character battling an opioid addiction. During an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival, the actress called the vaping trend among teenagers “hideous” and explained how she and her three kids handle the conversation of drugs. She shared that she tried to “put [her] sort of personal disgust” about drugs to the side to “be able to have a conversation” with her children.

The “Erin Brockovich” star shares twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 19, and son Henry, 16 with her husband of 21 years, Danny Moder. She revealed that she and her kids are super close and have open conversations about drugs and other topics at dinner, which they have just about every night when they are together. They discuss what certain drugs are and whether they have ever heard about them or tried them. It’s about figuring it out together.
