Oscar-award winning actress Susan Sarandon said Thursday that she was stoned at almost all of entertainment award shows she attended, except for the Academy Awards.

Sarandon, 67, made the comments on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live," where she was a guest along with actor Ralph Fiennes, according to People magazine.

"Watch What Happens Live" host Andy Cohen asked Sarandon to name one award show where she showed up stoned.

"Only one?" Sarandon responded with a laugh, according to People. "I would say almost all except the Oscars."

Sarandon has talked about her feelings on marijuana during a 2012 interview with New York magazine while promoting the film "Jeff Who Lives at Home," which focused on a pot-smoking 20-something still living with his parents.

When asked if in real life would she tolerate the main character's actions, Sarandon responded: "I don't mind if they're smoking weed in the basement if they have a job, and they're functioning. The problem with smoking weed all the time is if you're not productive. Some of the most productive people I know are smoking weed."

People pointed out that Sarandon has been nominated for eight Golden Globes, and four Emmys, along with her five Oscar nominations, winning the best actress Academy award in 1996 for "Dead Man Walking."

Sarandon told the host that she had no regrets about any of her past movie roles she took, according to E! News.

"Well, even ones that didn't turn out," she said, according to E! News. "You learn something, right?"

The longtime Hollywood star, though, was mum when asked to talk about any secret entertainment romances from the past, noted E! News.

Sarandon has performed in cult classics, as in "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in 1975, and has several memorable roles, including as Annie in "Bull Durham," where she met husband Tim Robbins in 1988, according to

"It was such a wonderful script ... and did away with a lot of myths and challenged the American definition of success," Sarandon said about "Bull Durham" in a previous interview. "When I got there, I spent some time with Kevin Costner, kissed some ass at the studio and got back on a plane."
