The name Woody Harrelson brings to mind weed. Also, that one movie you kind of remember he was okay in. He's made fifty.
During a press junket for his latest movie, Wilson, Harrelson conceded to being a party animal as so labeled mythically for several decades. Though he casually dropped the fact that he'd quit pot over a year ago. Not a small feat after puffing regularly since Reagan could remember what year it was.
Well, like, last night, someone had — not just good herb but sativa; really good sativa. There’s a joint, and beautifully rolled. I like a beautifully rolled … and I just was like, I mean, I’ve gone this long. It would be weird to just be like, “Okay, let me have a hit off that,” and then suddenly go back to smoking too much, which is … I don’t have a problem at all with smoking. I think it’s great. I think it’s a great drug, in terms of … Even cops say that the side effect is euphoria.
It's unclear if that was a reminder he's on the wagon or a Pam Anderson-Julian Assange style love letter to marijuana. If you speak any Harrelson, he seems to miss it.
Harrelson boiled down his reason for quitting the wacky weed to the manner in which it made him emotionally unavailable. It's probably fair to say this came as an ultimatum from a woman in his life. Which isn't the worst thing in the world as it's the only reason men both work and masturbate as opposed to solely the latter.
Harrelson was up there with Brad Pitt and Cameron Diaz in the ranks of the Hollywood weed greats. Everybody retires sometime. Except from smoking pot actually. Congressional investigations seems ubiquitous these days. It's worth a few subpoenas to get to the bottom of this.
