Cool mum Susan Sarandon encourages her kids to quiz her about her dalliances with drugs - so she can tell them which ones are worth experimenting with. The "Thelma & Louise" actress admits trying narcotics in the past, but insists her experiences - with both legal and illegal substances - haven't always been successful.
And the star has warned her three children to be careful of what they take - and urges them to ask her for advice before they consider getting high. She tells Britain's Observer newspaper, "I'm very susceptible to drugs of any kind. Coffee, it's great because it gets me very up, but then I crash. I'm not really interested in drinking. Tequila maybe, but champagne makes me fall asleep. It doesn't take much. I love (magic) mushrooms and I've done those successfully, but I don't like anything chemical. I didn't like LSD, and Ecstasy wouldn't agree with me."
"I like stuff you can smoke. Everyone is wired differently. Some people can do stuff that others can't. That's what I told my kids. Some drugs can kill you. Some are not even worth trying. Some are a lot of fun, so talk to me first."
