Mark Ruffalo smoked a giant blunt

Mark Ruffalo recalls crossing the line during one of the performances when he had to smoke a joint. The MCU actor states that it was the opening night with a lot of critics and he was performing with a very “naughty” young actor who slipped a joint onto the prop table. Ruffalo took a huge blunt without realizing it wasn’t a prop, and then he says, “We smoked a giant blunt on stick and I’m like, Why is that dude standing backstage laughing at me?”


“I was doing a play and during the play, I had to smoke a joint on stage and one of my cast members actually put a real joint, It’s wrong on so many levels. I came off stage and that’s where I think I found the Hulk for the first time. But I was also very slow so I couldn’t catch him. That was the worst thing.”
