(Newser) – Almost 20 years after it took women's scalps by storm, Jennifer Aniston is finally ready to talk about her infamous Friends haircut, the "Rachel" (she has a new web series and hair care line to promote, according to E!). But the big revelation is not that she was never a fan—she told Allure that it was "the ugliest haircut I've ever seen" two years ago. It's that her stylist, Chris McMillan, created the haircut while stoned. "I’m 14 years sober, so I feel safe enough to say that," he told Women's Wear Daily. For her part, Aniston seems to have mellowed on the 'do. "It's honestly never been a big deal to me," she says on her new web show, among other profound hair-based insights, such as, "I think good hair days matter to women because we're women. And, y'know. I don't know how to explain what that is."

Jennifer Aniston can't manage to string five words together to express a coherent thought EVER, unless she's reading from a script.

I think that a great deal of the work done in this country is done by people who are stoned. If you're not working in an office or factory setting, it's easy to step out and toke up. And it can make a shitty day better.

The best art that can be found all around you are created by those who partake. We would not have awesome video games or any other type of entertainment without the vision of artists who "go outside of the box". Most employers these days do not require drug testing. What you do outside of the workplace is your business. If it affects your work negatively or you are partaking on the job- yeah, you may have to take one and legal action may ensue. Personally, I do not support illegal drugs, but I don't judge those who do.
