The subject came up during an interview for his new movie "Wilson," 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."

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.
