(Newser) – Pregnant actress Natalie Portman used to be "cool" and suck on marijuana spliffs, she reveals in an interview. "I smoked weed in college, but I haven't smoked in years," Portman tells Entertainment Weekly. "I'm too old. I wish I was that cool, but I'm like an old lady now. I'm in bed by 10pm. I can't do that anymore."

But she still harbors a love for dopey stoner comedies, including her own recent foray into the genre as the star of Your Highness, a medieval quest version of the formula. Portman is also developing another film with her production company, Best Buds, a buddy movie about a marijuana-fueled road trip.

Whatevs! *I'm so old now I don't remember how I got pregnant either* Ain't you rich none? Whycome you can't admit you can't wait to have the baby so you can burn, and burn again. Whycome you blame it on age? Honey if you too old to toke, you too old to be chasin' down your little one! PS OK Nat, I know - you just don't need the hassle. PPS yes I can be grammatically correct if I wish. I just don't wish! Whycome, I don't know.

A real story would be "FOUND: Person who never smoked marijuana."

This is unsurprising. Some may recall her saying, on the record, "When I was in Harvard, i smoked weed every day."
