George's old quote about drugs

Post by Katiedot on Thu Dec 16 2010, 03:04

I still can't find the pic I want to use as an avatar, but have dredged up other stuff in my search!

This is his quote about doing drugs when he was younger, which I think he said in 2000:

In college, I basically partied a lot. You gotta understand. We're a very strict Catholic family. Curfew was at nine p.m. when I was a senior in high school. So I got out of the house and thought, Oh my God! People don't ever really like to talk about this anymore, but there was a period of time when blow was considered OK, like it won't hurt you at all. It was almost mainstream. All the designer drugs were OK-Quaaludes and blow. So that was the time in college for me: Drugs and chasing girls.

I remember that quote. He blew all his college money pretty quick. I don't think studying was really part of his college experience.

His mum said something similar in a TV interview: they (stupidly) gave him the money for all three years in one go and by the end of the first semester, it was all gone! Something along those lines.

He had to do the first year twice and then dropped out, right?

MelB- what is the old quote?
One picks the level of one's self esteem--be sure you have self esteem?
Interesting....

J, there's been times when I've really been in the gutter and come to think of it, that's who I attracted. I still have low self-esteem, but at least I don't have gutter trash. Come to think of it, I don't have anybody. But, that's okay right now...

Thanks Purgatoire! I've got my grandbabies that I get to see tomorrow, so I'll be a happy camper then! They'll spend Christmas day with other grandma, but that's okay. I'm just going to plug in a Clooney-a-thon!!!!

MelB-I understand and suspect we all do to some degree. Learning to enjoy one's own company may be the answer--let me know when you figure it out, I am certainly a work in progress. study

Bringing this thread from 18 months ago back on topic, I always wonder how seriously involved in drugs George actually was.

Can't help but think he's exaggerated trying cocaine for hunorous effect or is that me indulging in a little wishful thinking?

The funny thing is, I can easily imagine him to this day smoking dope.

I think George has smoked a lot of marijuana, when he was Ocean Twelve? Amsterdam, he and Bred Pitt often went to Coffee shops (they do not sell coffee, but soft drugs) to smoke!

De Dampkring Coffee Shop
by Clint

De Dampkring is a coffeeshop with a special look and vibe, located in the Spui area. A scene from Ocean's Twelve was shot here, and even Brad Pitt and George Clooney are reported to be frequent visitors.

Its extraordinary décor makes Dampkring coffee shop stand out from the crowd. Both inside and outside are moulded, sculpted, studded and painted with bright colours. The overall effect is quite stunning, and this place has to be seen even if you don't stop.

They have an excellent menu and take pride in the quality of their product and the extensive variety on the menu. There is plenty of room inside with great music, and a licensed bar with beer and wine.

Trivia: A key scene for Ocean's Twelve, the sequel to the star-studded extravaganza Ocean's Eleven, was recorded in De Dampkring. The owner, Paul Wilhelm, told media the lead characters are no strangers there. "We have Brad Pitt in our store a few times a year," he said, "all incognito with a beanie and glasses. Just sitting there smoking some. We've had George Clooney in, too. They are just nice people."
There is a strand of weed sold there which is called "Ocean 12 Haze".

Address: Handboogstraat 29
Telephone: +31 (0)20 6380705

In that one interview that I just saw again for the first time with Norman Lear (CRS), George stated that he never smoked cigarettes. I do believe that is wrong, as one interview I heard, he stated that he smoked a little, but stopped completely before Rosemary died. As far as drugs, I think he did his fair share, but don't think he was totally hardcore about it. He seems to me to be too intent on his thinking abilities for writing, directing, etc., to be a total druggy. I'm sure that he probably smokes pot occasionally, to relax?

I had never read this quote before:

"I loved acid when I was at college. It was an escape. I liked mushrooms. They were like easy acid. I did like blow (cocaine)... blow would dress you up for a party, but never take you there. You’re always like, 'this is going to be great!' Then you’re just depressed."

Never read that quote either Doug Ross.  George has been pretty honest about his drug taking and his episodes of hard drinking ( after his spinal injury).  He said in the Rollng Stone interview after he arrived in Hollywood that he partied like crazy, mainly booze, some coke and many quaaludes ("I thought quaaludes were the greatest drug ever made")!

It is a bit amazing with all the drinking and drugs that he never let it noticeably get out of control and let it take over him.  He must have a pretty strong constitution.
