Is Justin Timberlake still a stoner? "Absolutely," the Bad Teacher star admits in the July issue of Playboy. "The only thing pot does for me is that it gets me to stop thinking. Sometimes I have a brain that just needs to be turned off. Some people are just better high."
That's not to say Justin's experiences getting high haven't led to a few lows: The actor/singer admits he was baked when Ashton Kutcher's team pretended to be government agents seizing his property because of unpaid income taxes on the premiere episode of Punk'd in 2003. "I actually stopped smoking pot for nine to 10 months after that, I was so stoned," he confesses. "If you ask my friends, if they're honest they would say that's the only way to get me as dizzy as I was."
The Punk'd situation got so stressful that a tearful Justin called his mother after the "agents" said they were going to take his dog, too —but JT says Ashton and company chopped out all of his tough talk.
"What you didn't see from the episode, because it was a 45-minute affair cut down to 10 minutes, was me showing up and being like 'What the [bleep] are you people doing on my property? Get the [bleep] out of here!' " he reveals. "Then they started rattling off my parents' address, and I was like 'Holy [crap], hold on a second.' I mean everyone was got good on that show — me probably the best."
