Woody Harrelson Has Given Up Pot


Woody Harrelson[1] without pot? Unthinkable! And yet the "True Detective" star says he has sworn off the green stuff.

As the actor tells Vulture[2], "I actually stopped smoking pot almost a year ago."

The subject came up during an interview for his new movie "Wilson[3]," when he was asked what misconceptions people have about him. "They think I'm a party animal, which … I am a party animal. I mean, that might be one thing. But I am a party animal. But on the other hand, I haven't … I'm now extremely moderate."

He says he gave up pot because he had spent "30 solid years of just partying too f**king hard."

However, he's still a fan. "I think it's great. I think it's a great drug … Even cops say that the side effect is euphoria… But when you're doing it all the time, it just becomes … Well, you know. I feel like it was keeping me from being emotionally available."

Harrelson admits he still drinks: "But I try to be moderate with the drinking, too."

He added, "I really don't want this interview to turn into a whole thing about [quitting pot]." Sorry, Woody, that's the big takeaway here.
