Nicole Richie Admits She Thought She Could Drive High

In her interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC, her baby-daddy, Joel Madden, by her side, Nicole Richie admits that at the time of her DUI, she believed that driving under the influence of marijuana and Vicodin was perfectly fine. After an incredulous laugh from her boyfriend at this revelation, Richie very wisely plays it Hugh Grant and basically admits to everything, saying that her entire life, she’s always tried to get out of ever having to take responsibility for her actions. Now, whether or not she’s actually learned her lesson, because of the fact that Paris Hilton made such an ass of herself before, during and after her stay in jail, it’s hard not to find Nicole at least comparatively more mature. Also, I have to admit, her hair and make-up look good. And really, folks, isn’t that what’s important?
