Woody Harrelson Oscar Talk + Just Says No
11.05.09 by reelz
It may sound rather odd, but Woody Harrelson's name is being tossed around for an Oscar for his role as a US Army captain in the Iraq war drama The Messenger (it opens in NYC on November 13).
What sounds even more odd is that in an interview with the Village Voice's Aaron Hillis, Harrelson politely declined an offer to get high.
You're the only interviewee I've ever thought to ask, but: Would you like to smoke a joint?
Oh! The problem is I have to do some more interviews. I honestly would love to, but I can't do interviews stoned. Sometimes, it can open you up to do great creative things, and sometimes, it's a situation . . . like, I can't act that way. It absolutely freezes me. I can't do a talk show because it goes into the paranoia side. Yeah, I better not. That's a generous offer, but I should be on my game.
