Celebrities are just like us! They walk their dogs, they pump their own gas, they take out the recycling, and they even trip on psychedelic mushrooms. In reality, there are tons of celebrities who are loud and proud about their use of magic mushrooms and the ways in which they have improved their lives and careers.
We’ve done some digging and found 10 examples of A-list celebrities who love psilocybin mushrooms are willing to shout it from their (penthouse) rooftops.
Seth Rogan is a regular psychedelic mushroom connoisseur. Thanks to his open and honest mindset on drugs, you can find interviews spewed across the Internet in which he raves about his experiences. Just this year he told The New York Times Magazine how he’s experienced “ego death” on psychedelic mushrooms “like, 25 times”.
While he makes it clear that mushrooms are incredibly enlightening and spiritually powerful, he also admits that they can also be purely comical. When he was 18 he and his friend took upwards of 60 milligrams of mushrooms in Amsterdam and ended up in Paris. In 2015, Rogan told the whole thing to Jimmy Kimmel.
“We arrived in Paris in the middle of the night as we were kind of sobering up," he told Kimmel. "I remember thinking, 'I took so many drugs I ended up in another country.'
The ‘Veronica Mars’ and ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ actress became curious about psychedelic mushrooms and their effects on anxiety and depression after reading Michael Pollan's book How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence. As someone who has struggled with mental health, the actress was eager to try something different than the Western medicine she had been using for years.
Kristen opened up about her 22-year mental health journey on actor Sean Hayes and Dr. Priyanka Wali's new podcast, HypochondriActor. She explained that after trying magic mushrooms she's certain that “...the places you can go in your brain are much deeper and more healing than anything else.”
Mike Tyson’s tough-guy exterior doesn’t stop him from being introspective and honest about his life and the struggles he has faced. In an interview with Reuters, the former heavyweight champion dove into his mental health struggles during the peak of his career.
"Everyone thought I was crazy, I bit this guy's ear off," he told Reuters. ".. once I got introduced to the shrooms ... my whole life changed."
Tyson admits that he was almost suicidal at points in his life, but psychedelic mushrooms have done wonders for his mental stability. In the interview, he gushes over them, saying, “It's amazing medicine, and people don't look at it from that perspective.”
“I am cured".
Miley might be one of the youngest celebrity superstars to open up about her experiences with psychedelics. While on the television show RuPaul’s Drag Race, she joked that drugs were the catalyst that killed her alter-ego, Hannah Montana.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, she listed off some of the substances she’s done in her life, including psychedelic mushrooms, ayahuasca, and DMT. Although ayahuasca was her favorite, she admitted that she would probably indulge in mushrooms again in the future.
After a life-changing and heart-wrenching divorce from singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly, Musgraves went reaching for psychedelic mushrooms, as she had many times before. In an interview with Elle magazine she explained her need to, “transform my trauma and my pain into something else”. Her solution? A seven-hour therapeutic psilocybin mushroom trip guided by a professional.
Like many other celebrities on this list, the pop-country artist was looking for some relief from the anxiety, addiction, and depression she had faced over the years. In an interview with Apple Music, she explained how she turned heartbreak into art though psychedelics. “...it was completely life-changing in so many ways, but it also triggered this whole big bang of not only the album title but the song Star-Crossed and the concept, you know, me looking into the structure of tragedies themselves as an art form throughout time.”
Handler has a hard time staying quiet about most things, and psychedelic mushrooms are no exception. In an interview on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon the comedian called microdosing a “game-changer”, and expressed the need to legalize psilocybin in America.
"Psilocybin is good for everybody," Handler told Fallon, "It puts you in a good mood, keeps you upbeat, and makes you appreciate nature. So ya, legalizing mushrooms? For sure."
Like so many of us, she’s also had her fair share of hysterical moments on magic mushrooms. While on SiriusXM’s ‘Andy Cohen Live’, she explained how she wound up taking shrooms with her landscaper.
“...I was taking them one morning and I was talking to —what I thought— were my trees in my backyard for 30 minutes until I realized it was my landscaper. And that’s when I handed him some mushrooms and we just sat there all day in the pool and talked shit. And it was fun. You know, I got to know him.”
The man, the myth, the legend. Eclectic music producer, Diplo, aka, Thomas Pentz is an avid fan of the growing mushroom movement. While we haven't heard Diplo's personal anecdotes using psychedelics, we were thrilled to see his collab with Crocs on a psychedelic inspired Croc. The trippy clogs featured tie-dye print and three-dimensional mushrooms sprouting from the shoes. And as if the shoes weren't funky enough, they also glow in the dark. If you were lucky enough to cop a pair before they sold out, DM us a photo @alchemimushrooms!
