Brad Pitt played a pot smoker in 1993’s True Romance and admits life imitated art for him, reports.

“I certainly had my day,” Pitt, 45, told HBO’s Bill Maher Friday after the talk show host called the actor’s role “one of the best stoner performances.”

Maher also recounted a New Year’s Eve party at which he says he witnessed Pitt rolling “the most perfect” joints he had ever seen. Pitt’s response? “I’m an artist.”

But Pitt admits he kicked the habit for the six kids he has with partner Angelina Jolie: “You want to be alert and my eyes used to glaze over when I did that.”
