Netflix’s new documentary “Have A Good Trip” is chock full of hilarious, and sometimes freaky celebrity confessions. In the doc, stars like Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, and even the late Anthony Bourdain and Carrie Fisher tell their best stories about taking psychedelics back in their salad days.
The best part? The stories are reenacted by hilarious actors like Adam Devine and Brett Gelman. Here’s some of the best celebrity trip stories:
- Anthony Bourdain:The late, great chef and travel show host says journalist Hunter S Thompson was the one who inspired him to “live out a legendary drug trip but ‘survive it.” So, Bourdain and his friend hit the road to the Catskills in a car packed with various types of drugs, where they ended up taking a detour to the home of a couple of exotic dancers. Things took a weird turn when one of the girls collapsed after taking an “industrial-strength” quaalude, which had Bourdai thinking he was going to jail… but luckily, everything turned out okay, “she got back up like nothing happened.”
- Carrie Fisher:Another late legend, the “Star Wars” actress remembers her acid trip right in the middle of New York City’s Central Park. In this reenactment, Brett Gelman plays an acorn that Fisher remembers watching perform a fully choreographed dance. “I never saw things that weren’t there,” Fisher explains. “I just saw things that were there, misbehave.”
- Ben Stiller:The actor says that he didn’t realize how much his trip would change his life “for a long time.” After watching the 1979 musical “Hair,” he was inspired to experiment with psychedelics to “open some other form of consciousness.” What ended up happening was he stared at his hand “pondering what my hand was”... and then started to realize that not only did he not know, but he didn’t know what reality was. So, he called his fatherJerry Stiller… who recalled getting sick for two days after smoking a Pall Mall cigarette.Close, but no cigar.
