Whoopi Goldberg needed to settle her nerves before the 63rd annual Oscars, where she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress, and she lnew just the way to do it — smoking marijuana. 

TMZ obtained a never-before-seen video of the now View co-host at a voice-over recording session for the the movie, The Pagemaster back in 1992 where she admits she was high during her 1991 acceptance for Best Supporting Actress at the 63rd Annual Academy Awards.

"Smoking cigarettes and pot every now and then are my habits. And I thought, 'I've got to relax.' So I smoked a joint, my homegrown," Whoopi revealed in the video.

"When he (presenter actor Denzel Washington) said my name and I popped up, I thought, 'Oh f*ck'...okay, up the stairs ... around to the podium … there's millions of people, get the statue, pick up the statue," she said of having to coach herself through the entire process.


But she couldn't keep the secret from her mom.

"My mother called me and she said, 'You smoked didn't you?' " Whoopi remembered in the clip. "I know you're not supposed to admit that you smoked pot … but just because I do it doesn't mean you should."
