Actor Lakeith Stanfield Used To Work On A Marijuana Farm

Before breaking onto the big screen, Stanfield made ends meet by working on a marijuana farm in California for a few years, which left him with a new appreciation for nature.

"I realized that plants were actually beings, and they're beautiful," he told Jimmy Kimmel yesterday.

"So you were actually smoking them too?" Kimmel quipped.

"Yes," Stanfield confessed.
