Matthew McConaughey has revealed that Snoop Dogg replaced his prop weed for real weed while the pair were filming ‘The Beach Bum’.
The new Harmony Korine film sees McConaughey star alongside the rapper. In one six-minute scene, McConaughey’s character heads to Snoop’s Lingerie to get some “magic weed” to help with his writer’s block.
McConaughey says that he checked they would be using prop weed, “it’s like crushed oregano and stuff.” However, Snoop decided to play a prank on his co-star.
“We get to the scene, it’s a six-minute scene, we’re passing [the weed] back and forth. All of a sudden at the end he goes, ‘Yo, Moondog’ — that’s my character — he goes, ‘That ain’t prop weed. That’s Snoop Weed.’ I went, ‘Oh, you son of a gun.’ Now the next nine hours were a lot of fun, but I don’t believe we used one word in the English language,” McConaughey told Jimmy Kimmel.
“As I said to him the next day, ‘I got Snooped,’” McConaughey joked. Watch the interview below.
‘The Beach Bum’ also stars Isla Fisher, Zac Efron, Jonah Hill and Jimmy Buffett and marks Korine’s first film since 2012’s Spring Breakers.
When he’s not starring in Korine movies, Snoop Dogg is hosting a new YouTube series about the history of the sport.
He released the first tutorial last month, which saw the rapper discusses the history of the Stanley Cup.
He discusses the several superstitions around the cup, including the idea that it can only be touched by its winners.
“There’s only one way to hoist it – you’ve got to win it,” says Snoop.
