Cameron Diaz's recent claim that she bought cannabis from Snoop Doggat school hasn't just put an indelible stain on Snoop's otherwise flawless reputation – it has uncovered the seedy world of celebrities encouraging fellow celebrities to take drugs. Some notorious couplings are listed below, but can you spot the odd one out?
In August 1964, Bob Dylan sat the Beatles down and made them smoke marijuana for the first time. "We were smoking dope, drinking wine and generally being rock'n'rollers. It was party time," John Lennon later recalled. In summary, the world has Dylan to thank for Yellow Submarine. We owe him a great debt.
In a 2009 interview with Access Hollywood, Cybill Shepherd claimed that her brief relationship with Elvis Presley ended because he offered her drugs. "Once, when it was time to go to bed, he said to me, 'Take these pills.' I flushed them down the toilet," she said. Three years later, he was dead. Two decades later, she made a rubbish sitcom. Draw your own conclusions.
Tarantino claims that, during an Inglourious Basterds production meeting, Brad Pitt pulled out "a brick of hash" and shared it with him. Which, if nothing else, might explain why Pitt settled on such a ridiculous accent for the film.
In her wild and rebellious days as a student, Samantha Cameron may have played a few games of pool with notorious pothead rapper Tricky and, yes, people around them may have been smoking joints and wolfing down mushrooms at the time, but that doesn't mean that she actually ingested any drugs herself. So this is the odd one out. You know, probably.
