Over the course of their lives, a few celebrities have become synonymous with marijuana. A few names that come to mind: Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson, Joe Rogan, Rihanna, Seth Rogen, and of course Woody Harrelson. So it made national headlines when Harrelson announced last year that he quit smoking marijuana.
But breaking the news to the world one thing. Breaking it his cannabis buddy Willie Nelson was another. In fact, Harrelson tried to hide it from Nelson for a while, as he revealed in a new interview with Jimmy Kimmel.
“That was a very hard one to break,” he said. “At first, I’m like pretending [to smoke a joint]. I’m just holding it because I don’t want him to know and then finally I’m like, ‘Willie, I quit.’”
Apparently Nelson didn’t believe Harrelson all the way and still has a hard time accepting Harrelson’s new life change.
And still it never fails, the joint comes around and he passes it to me,” Harrelson said. “He keeps waiting for me to smoke again.”
Once again, though, Harrelson stoked the waning embers of whether or not he still uses cannabis in the interview. “I quit smoking, I quit smoking,” he emphasized to Kimmel. This falls in line with previous speculation surrounding his Late Show With Stephen Colbert interview, where Harrelson said, “You don’t have to smoke a brownie, dude. You know what I’m saying?”
As always with Woody, nobody knows. Maybe he still uses cannabis, but doesn’t toke anymore. Regardless, ol’ Uncle Willie is still disappointed in you, Woody.
