Talk about life imitating art, Kirsten Dunst had a bit of an interesting experience filming her new movie 'Woodshock'.

Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel on his show, Dunst explained that partway through shooting she had a little bit of a rough time smoking "prop weed".

'Woodshock' stars Dunst as a young woman named Theresa who, suffering a profound loss, begins to spiral out of control torn between her emotional state and a super strong canabinoid drug that begins to take hold.

"You know, you have movie pot," she explained to Kimmel, "which is basically fake... it's whatever they roll. Fake whatever..."

"We were doing this one scene, obviously in the movie I don't smoke that many but when you're doing takes I was smoking one after the next after the next... after we were done with the scene I went back to this little bedroom to rest and I started to feel like I was losing my mind."

Dunst began to feel a tad strange and spoke to one of the directors, Laura Mulleavy. After a producer went to check things out with the prop joints, things began to make a bit more sense.

"He came back and he was like 'Oh you smoked a FULL blunt on one of the takes,'... and this is like STRONG S**T."

Apparently some locals had rolled the joints for the production and had snuck in some strong Humboldt weed.

"I was crying, laughing, eating a peanut butter sandwich. I couldn't film anymore they sent me home, I've never been that stoned in my entire life."
