(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.
