Los Angeles: Hollywood beauty Cameron Diaz says that she was a marijuana user in high school and rap superstar Snoop Dogg, a senior of hers, once sold her the drug.

Diaz made the revelation on the TV show `Lopez Tonight` during an appearance to promote her latest film `The Green Hornet`.

Speaking about the 39-year-old rapper, whose fondness for the drug is well known, Diaz said, "We went to high school together, he was a year older than me. He was very tall and skinny and wore lots of ponytails in his hair and I`m pretty sure I got weed from him. I had to have."

The 38-year-old told host George Lopez that her drug habit was her early "claim to fame" before making a name in Hollywood.

Both Snoop Dogg, real name Cordozar Calvin Broadus, and Diaz attended school in Long Beach, California.

And the `Shrek star` who was born to Cuban immigrants, says her school wasn`t for the faint-hearted.

"High school was pretty rough. Anytime you heard the locker slam and you`d turn and there was a girl taking off her earrings, she`s pulling her hair back in a ponytail and she`s taking all her friends` rings and coming at you. It was like, `OK, everybody get back` and you`d be wondering `Is she coming at me?`," said Diaz.
