These celebs are known to enjoy a joint from time to time, so, of course, they talked about bonding over this on the set of their new movie, The Beach Bum.
“I think the movie was a party,” Dogg said. That’s because they toked up during the first scene they filmed together.
McConaughey describes getting ready to shoot a sequence in which his Moondog character goes to the house of Lingerie (Dogg) to get acquainted with the Mary Jane.
“I talked to the prop guy on set. ‘Look I got my prop joints,’ which are oregano,” McConaughey said. “I talked to Snoop. I said, ‘These are my prop joints, oregano,’ ’cause I know I’m gonna be pulling. He said, ‘Yeah, yeah. I got that, I got that.’ So we go to do the scene and it’s about an eight-minute take, it was a long take if you’re passing a joint back and forth and you’re smoking hardcore to the heels of your feet. So the scene goes on and right after the scene I just feel like, man, I’m not sure of this prop.”
That’s when Dogg said, “Yoh, Moondog. That wasn’t prop weed, that was Snoop weed.”
“It was the first take of the night,” McConaughey noted. “I didn’t say another word of English, really, the rest of the night.” Apparently, though, he rapped for “13 hours straight.”
“We made about seven songs that was for real,” Dogg added, “and he was so high for the whole rest of the movie we kept touching back on those songs.”
The set of The Beach Bum, directed and written by Harmony Korine, seems like a wild time.
Dogg said he was initially supposed to portray himself but then he had an “epiphany” in the middle of the night to call his character “Rey,” as in it’s short for “Lingerie.” Then there was the time Dogg and McConaughey filmed a hot tub scene with Jimmy Buffet that was “a culmination of spirits that deserve each other,” the rapper says.
