Back in March, it was reported that natural-born hempster Woody Harrelson had stopped smoking pot. Stephen Colbert directed the question to Harrelson on The Late Show on July 10. The actor was cagey, half-heartedly admitting it's true, but then again maybe not (cue to 5:56 in above clip).
Colbert: I understand you don't smoke weed anymore. Is this true?
"I don't smoke any less (cheers). I did, I quit smoking... this morning. I'll pick it up after this. No, I actually did quit."
Colbert: So you don't smoke weed anymore?
"You don't have to smoke a brownie, dude. You know what I'm saying?"
The rest of thje interview focused on Willie Nelson and Maui (both Harrelson and his friend Nelson live on Maui), Harrelson's role in the next Star Wars movie in 2018, and his part in War for the Planet of the Apes, which opened July 14.
Update: On Oct. 20, Harrleson told Jimmy Kimmel that it's been "a year and a half" since he stop using cannabis. He called it "an experiment" and joked, "I've smoked enough to fill hits theater." Nelson also came up int he conversation:
'That was a hard one to break. At first I didn't want him to know and then I was like, "Willie, I quit."'
The rest of the interview focused on his starring role in LBJ, which opens in theaters on Nov. 3.
One of the original modern-day celebrities to adocate for hemp legalization, Harrelson eventually expanded his advocacy to all uses of marijuana.
He's had a busy year, also appearing in Wilson and Lost in London, which Harrelson also wrote and directed, and has lived for the last year.
