Imagine your cuppa stirred with cocaine instead of sugar. Does it sound hilarious? Well, its not as funny as it sounds, especially if the act is not intentional. Veteran Hollywood actress Shirley MacLaine recently revealed a similar incident that took place at a Hollywood party, when she mistook cocaine for sugar and mixed the white stuff into her coffee.
The 73-year-old Oscar winner made this startling confession on Britain’s GMTV.
We were sitting around and there was a silver container of what I thought was Sweet’N Low but it was coke. And into my cup I put about a couple of thousand dollars of coke and I never got invited back.
Although she earned a place for herself in the bad books of the party organizers, she was lucky enough to be stopped by another guest from drinking the deadly potion. Shirley MacLaine is known for her drug-free lifestyle, and hence I can imagine the tenacity of the feeling that went through her mind after realizing the faux pas.
