Matthew McConaughey reveals that Snoop Dog swapped his prop weed for real weed

Actor Matthew McConaughey revealed that Snoop Dogg replaced his prop weed with real marijuana while the duo were filming The Beach Bum.

During his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actor recalled a story about Snoop getting him high when they were on set together.

Of the experience McConaughey said, "There’s a scene where I’m going to Snoop because I’ve got writers block and Snoop has the magic weed. So I went to the prop man to make sure I have the prop weed which is like crushed oregano."

They filmed the six-minute scene and discovered that the prop weed wasn't what it seemed.

"We pass back and forth and all of sudden at the end he goes ‘Yo Moondog’ [his character], that ain’t prop weed, that’s Snoop Weed’ and I was like ‘Oh you son of a a gun’," McConaughey explains.

He called experience getting "Snooped," which he says was "recorded on camera."

"The next nine hours were a lot of fun but I don’t think we used one word in the English language," he says.

McConaughey and Snoop will star in The Beach Bum alongside Zac Efron, Jonah Hill, Isla Fisher and Jimmy Buffett.

The story centres on the life of a stoner named Moondog, played by McConaughey.

The Beach Bum, which is directed by Harmony Korine, doesn't yet have a release date.
