Washington: ‘Mad About You’ star Helen Hunt has joked that her secret to keeping sane in the hectic world of Hollywood is staying stoned.

Hunt, 47, who starred as lovable Jamie Stemple Buchman on the hit NBC sitcom, made the comment as she was promoting her upcoming drama ‘Every Day’ in Los Angeles.

“Usually I’m stoned, even right now I’m stoned, I’m barely here,” Fox News quoted her as joking.

“No, I just do the best I can and am grateful for my life,” she added.
