So, we already know that Martha Stewart could roll a fat j if pressed. Now, we also know that Oprah Winfrey might be up for dabbling in the green stuff—during an interview with Andy Cohen, the talk show host extraordinaire discussed, if briefly, her feelings towards marijuana.

It all went down on "Watch What Happens Live," with Andy Cohen. Winfrey began by taking a daredevil sip of Cohen's alcoholic beverage, then saying it would get her "messed up."

Cohen then cuts to the most pressing issue of the day—weed—and asks Winfrey when the last time she smoked was. She replies, "1982."

Obviously, this is much too long for a woman of her magnitude to have gone without getting blasted, so Cohen invites her to "hang out after the show." WINK WINK.
