“I’ve always had good experiences with peyote, but when we were together, it was awful,” Fonda said Thursday on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”
“I was totally paranoid…it was the worst,” she continues. “I love it, but I wouldn’t do peyote unless you came with a guide.”
“Like a magician,” added Tomlin. “As I am”
