Rachel McAdams says she was desperate because she couldn't sleep

Rachel McAdams has told how she regretting taking the advice of a grocer when she took liquid marijuana to help her sleep.

The Canadian actress explained on Jimmy Kimmel Live how she had told a grocer in Toronto she was having trouble sleeping and he gave her a herbal remedy to help. But it left her hallucinating all night, believing she could hear opera music.

Rachel revealed: "I said I was having a really hard time sleeping. And he said, 'Well, I've got something for you.' And I was like, 'Oh, OK!' So he takes me to the back and he pulls out this little bottle with no label and it's full with this dark green substance. He says, 'Take a whiff of that.' And it's, like, well, it's marijuana!

"And I was like, 'Oh, no no no. I wanna sleep - I don't wanna get high."

But the About Time actress admitted she "was pretty desperate at the time", so she was persuaded to take "the tiniest teaspoon" of the concoction.

She revealed: "By the time I'm getting into bed, I'm like, my brain - what's happening? I was not thinking normal human thoughts. I was hallucinating! I was totally hallucinating and I'm just laying there like, cursing him. I can't believe this is happening.

"And then I started to hear opera. For like five hours I heard opera, this guy singing opera in my head. I was going crazy!"
