Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin elaborated on their peyote extraction experience together.
The actors, who starred in Netflix‘s “Grace and Frankie” together from 2015 to 2022, filled Stephen Colbert on his late night show about the dos and don’ts when it comes to consuming the plant, known for its hallucinogenic effects.
Tomlin, 83, admits he’s more peyote than Fonda.
“I microdose,” Tomlin told Colbert, on a clip from their appearance published Thursday,” adding that Fonda was “not that advanced.”
When Colbert, 58, asked Tomlin if he was microdosing — which means taking a small amount of medicine — today, he gave a cheeky response: “Yes, of course.”
Although Fonda, 85, says she’s had positive experiences with peyote in the past, her experience taking it with Tomlin was quite the opposite.
“I’ve always had good experiences with peyote, but the time we put it together, it was horrible,” Fonda said, adding that she became “absolutely paranoid.”
He continued: “This is the worst. I like it, but I won’t do peyote unless you have a guide with you.”
Tomlin then chimed in: “Like a shaman, as I am.”
When Colbert asked if she could benefit from peyote, Fonda suggested she try it.

“I think you need a little peyote, yeah, and I’ll be your guide,” he joked, before withdrawing the offer to guide him through the experience.
Fonda previously opened up about her experiences with peyote in an interview with GQ in 2015.
“It’s pretty wild. You throw up a lot,” she said. “You have visions. It’s not my drug of choice; I’ve never had any deep visions, but many of my friends have. You see incredible shapes and colors and patterns, and sometimes you have cosmic breakthroughs. I don’t.”
Lily Tomlin will be honored along with AARP The Magazine’s Movies for Grownups Award
