Early life

Woodrow Tracy Harrelson[1][2] was born in Midland, Texas, on July 23, 1961,[3] the son of secretary Diane (née Oswald)[4] and convicted hitman Charles Voyde Harrelson.[3] He was raised in a Presbyterian household alongside his two brothers, Jordan and Brett, the latter of whom also became an actor.[3][5] Their father received a life sentence for the 1979 killing of federal judge John H. Wood Jr.[6] Harrelson has stated that his father was rarely around during his childhood.[5] Charles died in the United States Penitentiary, Administrative Maximum Facility on March 15, 2007.[6] Harrelson's family was poor and relied on his mother's wages.[5] In 1973, he moved to his mother's native city of Lebanon, Ohio,[7] where he attended Lebanon High School, from which he graduated in 1979.[8] He spent the summer of 1979 working at Kings Island amusement park.[9]

Harrelson attended Hanover College in Hanover, Indiana, where he joined the Sigma Chi fraternity and received a BFA in Theatre and English in 1983. While there, he crossed paths with future Vice President Mike Pence. He said in 2018, "I knew [Pence], yeah. We were both very religious. I was at Presbyterian college at the time, and I was there on a Presbyterian scholarship, and he was involved with the church activities. I was actually considering being a minister and then I just kind of went a different way... I actually quite liked him. I thought he was a pretty good guy. He's, you know, very religious. Very committed. Seeing as how I'm not quite in that ballpark now, I don't know how we'd get along, 'cause I think he's still quite religious and just a whole different brand of religious. That kind of fervor that you really don't want."[10]



Harrelson at the 1988 Emmy Awards

Harrelson is widely known for his work on the NBC sitcom Cheers. He played bartender Woody Boyd, who replaced Coach (played by Nicholas Colasanto, who died in February 1985). He joined the cast in 1985 in season four, spending the final eight seasons (1985-1993) on the show. For this role, Harrelson was nominated for five Emmy Awards,[11] winning once in 1989. His character, Woody Boyd, was from Hanover, Indiana, where Harrelson attended college. In 1999, Harrelson guest-starred in the Cheers spin-off success Frasier, in which he reprised the role of "Woody Boyd." He was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for this performance. He appeared in several 2001 episodes of Will & Grace as Grace's new boyfriend Nathan.

On the November 12, 2009 episode of the Comedy Central show The Colbert Report, Harrelson was interviewed by Stephen Colbert, to promote his movie The Messenger. In response to Colbert's questioning of his support for the troops, Harrelson agreed to let Colbert shave his head on camera. Harrelson returned to television in 2014, starring along with Matthew McConaughey in the first season of the HBO crime series True Detective, where he played Marty Hart, a Louisiana cop investigating murders that took place over a timespan of 17 years.

On June 6, 2010, Harrelson took part playing in Soccer Aid 2010 for UNICEF UK at Old Trafford in Manchester. The match was broadcast live on UK's ITV television. After being brought on as a substitute for Gordon Ramsay, Harrelson took the final penalty in the penalty shootout, following a 2-2 draw after 91.2 minutes.[] Despite being initially unaware of exactly from where his kick had to be taken, Harrelson scored to win the game for "The Rest of the World" team, beating England for the first time since the tournament began. When later interviewed, he claimed that he "didn't even remember the moment of scoring."

Harrelson also took part in Soccer Aid 2012 on May 27, 2012. The match ended 3-1 in favor of England.[12]

While still working on Cheers, Harrelson restarted his film career. His first movie had been Wildcats, a 1986 football comedy with Goldie Hawn. He followed his performance in Wildcats with the 1990 romantic comedy Cool Blue, alongside Hank Azaria. He reunited with Wesley Snipes (who also had debuted in Wildcats) in the box-office hit White Men Can't Jump (1992) and the box office bomb Money Train (1995). In 1993, Harrelson starred opposite Robert Redford and Demi Moore in the drama Indecent Proposal, which was a box office success, earning a worldwide total of over $265,000,000.[13] He then played Mickey Knox in Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers and Dr. Michael Raynolds in the Michael Cimino film The Sunchaser. In 1996, he starred in the comedy Kingpin for the Farrelly brothers.

Harrelson directed Bullet for Adolf (a play he wrote with Frankie Hyman) at the esteemed Hart House Theatre in Toronto, Ontario, which ran from April 21 to May 7, 2011. Bullet for Adolf opened Off-Broadway (New World Stages) with previews beginning July 19, 2012 and closed on September 30, 2012, canceling its announced extension through October 21.[28] The play was panned by New York critics.[29]

Personal life

In 1985, Harrelson married Nancy Simon (daughter of playwright Neil Simon) in Tijuana. The union was not intended to be serious, and the two had planned to divorce the following day, but the storefront marriage/divorce parlor was closed when they returned to it and they remained married for another ten months.[30] In 2008, he married Laura Louie, a co-founder of the organic food delivery service Yoganics.[31] They met in 1987 when she worked as his personal assistant.[32] They reside in Maui, Hawaii, and have three daughters named Deni, Zoe, and Makani.[33] He also has a fourth daughter, Lakyn, from a previous marriage.

He made the ceremonial first move for the game.[35] He had also played the ceremonial first move for the previous World Chess Championship, held in New York in 2016.[36]

In 2020, Harrelson was seen practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu whilst filming, having received the first stripe on his white belt.[37]

Controversies and legal issues

In 1982, Harrelson was arrested for disorderly conduct in Columbus, Ohio, after he was found dancing in the middle of the street.[38] He was also charged with resisting arrest after he ran from the police.[38] He avoided jail time by paying a fine.[39]

On June 1, 1996, Harrelson was arrested in Lee County, Kentucky, after he symbolically planted four hemp seeds to challenge the state law which did not distinguish between industrial hemp and marijuana. Harrelson had arrived in the county with his attorney, former Kentucky Governor Louie B. Nunn, an agent and a camera crew from CNN. While at a local hotel, Harrelson phoned the county sheriff, Junior Kilburn, to advise him of his intentions. Kilburn and deputy sheriff Danny Towsend arrived at the location where Harrelson informed them he would be. With the cameras rolling, Harrelson planted the hemp seeds into the ground. Once planted, Kilburn placed Harrelson under arrest for cultivating marijuana and booked him into the county jail. He was released on $200 bail the same day. He later signed autographs and posed for photos with deputies. He was acquitted of those charges with the help of Nunn after just 25 minutes.[40] The events were featured in the 2010 Michael P. Henning documentary film Hempsters: Plant the Seed.[41]

In 2002, Harrelson was arrested in London after an incident in a taxi that ended in a police chase. Harrelson was taken to a London police station and later released on bail.[42] The case was later dismissed after Harrelson paid the taxi driver involved in the incident £550 ($844).[43] This became the inspiration for his 2017 live-streamed film Lost in London.[44]

In 2008, TMZ photographer Josh Levine filed a lawsuit against Harrelson for an alleged attack outside a Hollywood nightclub in 2006. A video of the incident appeared to show Harrelson grabbing a camera and clashing with the photographer. Los Angeles prosecutors declined to press charges against the actor, but Levine filed a suit that summer asking for $2.5 million in damages.[45] The case was dismissed in April 2010.[46]

In April 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Harrelson received criticism for publicly sharing a report which claimed to discuss the "negative effects of 5G" and its supposed role in the pandemic. The report claimed that "5G radiation" is exacerbating the pandemic and making it more lethal. Harrelson wrote on Instagram, "I haven't fully vetted it[;] I find it very interesting."[47]


Drug reform

Harrelson in 2004

Harrelson is an enthusiast and supporter of the legalization of marijuana and hemp.[48][49] He was a guest on Ziggy Marley's track "Wild and Free", a song advocating the growing of cannabis. Since 2003, Harrelson has served as a member on NORML's advisory board.[50]


Harrelson has attended environmental events such as the PICNIC'07 festival that was held in Amsterdam in September 2007.[51] PICNIC describes its annual festival as "three intensive days [when] we mix creativity, science, technology, media, and business to explore new solutions in the spirit of co-creation".[52] He once scaled the Golden Gate Bridge with members of North Coast Earth First! group to unfurl a banner that read, "Hurwitz, aren't ancient redwoods more precious than gold?" in protest of Maxxam Inc. CEO Charles Hurwitz, who once stated, "He who has the gold, makes the rules."[53]

Harrelson once traveled to the west coast in the U.S. on a bike and a domino caravan with a hemp oil-fueled biodiesel bus with the Spitfire Agency (the subject of the independent documentary Go Further) and narrated the 1999 documentary Grass. He briefly owned an oxygen bar in West Hollywood called "O2".[][54]

Harrelson has spoken publicly against the 2003 invasion of Iraq as well as previously protesting against the First Gulf War, both at UCLA as well as during a college concert tour in Iowa and Nebraska in 1991 under the auspices of "Woody Harrelson Educational Tours". In October 2009, he was given an honorary degree by York University for his contributions in the fields of environmental education, sustainability, and activism.[55]


Harrelson follows a raw vegan diet.[56][57] Along with not eating meat or dairy, Harrelson also does not eat sugar or flour.[56] In Zombieland, in which he plays a character with an affinity for Twinkies, the Twinkies were replaced with vegan faux-Twinkies made from cornmeal.[58] He appeared on a postage stamp (as a PhotoStamp) in 2011 as one of PETA's 20 famous vegetarians,[59] and he was named PETA's Sexiest Vegetarian in 2012 (along with Jessica Chastain).[60]


In June 2010, Harrelson took part in Soccer Aid at Old Trafford in Manchester to raise money for UNICEF. He played for the Rest of the World team alongside former professionals Zinedine Zidane and Luís Figo as well as chef Gordon Ramsay and fellow Hollywood actors Mike Myers and Michael Sheen.[61] Harrelson played the last 15 minutes and scored the winning goal in the penalty shootout following a 2-2 draw during normal time.[61] He played in the UNICEF game 2012, playing the last 10 minutes of the game for the Rest of the World team, losing 3-1 to England.


Harrelson identifies himself as an anarchist.[62] In a conversation with Howard Zinn, Harrelson admitted that he considers Zinn to be a personal hero of his.[63] In 2002, Harrelson wrote an article in the British newspaper The Guardian condemning President George W. Bush's preparation for a US invasion of Iraq as a "racist and imperialist war". He also stated that he was against the U.S.'s previous war in Iraq and President Bill Clinton's sanctions against Iraq. In 2013, Harrelson condemned President Barack Obama for failing to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan, negatively comparing him to Richard Nixon.[64]


Harrelson told Playboy in October 2009, "I was getting into theology and studying the roots of the Bible, but then I started to discover the man-made nature of it. I started seeing things that made me ask, 'Is God really speaking through this instrument?' My eyes opened to the reality of the Bible being just a document to control people. At the time I was a real mama's boy and deeply mesmerized by the church."[65][66]

In a May 2018 interview with Jimmy Kimmel,[10] Harrelson mentioned his study of theology and that he had considered becoming a minister. He explained that he became disillusioned with the church during his studies at college: "I started to see how man-made the Bible was and then I started saying, 'I could put this whole thing on hold for a while... let's just put this whole idea on hold so I can have my twenties and thirties of extreme hedonism.'" He stated that he has a belief in God, which he attributed to reading Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda, whom he described as a "man of integrity".
