Ever wondered what happened to the girl from The Blair Witch Project who shoves her face up close to the screen and cries about how she’s so scared? Nah, us either. But the answer is still pretty unbelievable: It turns out that the former actress, Heather Donahue, spent the year of 2007 growing pot in Los Angeles.
Her new memoir GrowGirl: How My Life After The Blair Witch Project Went to Pot details her successful medical marijuana business and her fears of getting busted. Heather was profiled on Philly.com since she’s a local gal, and she gave some hilarious quotes.
- Heather admitted to her own medical marijuana use, for PMS. When the interviewer asked if that meant she smoked it only once a month, she responded, “It’s a very flexible medicine.”
- She seemed really bitter about not appearing in any high-profile things except for the Steven Spielberg miniseries Taken: “I took all my stuff into the desert related to my acting career and burned it all.” But not her blue ski cap from Blair Witch! “That’s the only thing I kept. I figured if things got really bad, I could always sell it on eBay.”
- She immediately took to cultivating pot because she “was an avid gardener.”
And for the record? Her stuff was high-grade.
