We’ve experienced earlier Woody Harrelson moments of vegan freak-outs — like the time he showed up late for an interview because the hotel didn’t carry vegan toothbrushes (he had an assistant run and buy one) — but this latest one definitely is the most absurd.
According to the LA Times, Harrelson arrived at the Cannes Film Festival earlier last week, but forget his vegan shoes and belt. This time, his assistants could not track down replacements. Not willing to suck it up, Harrelson decided to have them flown from California to France for the event.
Now, in the scheme of things, having an extra pair of shoes and a belt on an overnight FedEx plane that was bound for France anyways is not going to kill a polar bear. But it’s the environmentally insensitive request from someone who truly lives the green lifestyle that has us puzzled. And that’s a first coming from someone like Harrelson.
If there’s a bright side to this story, it’s that the market for a vegan clothing store in France is wide open. Go for it!
