This Paragraph is Why I Love Woody Harrelson
Esquire has a new interview with Woody Harrelson involving raw foods, smoking up in a garage, and naturally, a random appearance by illusionist David Blaine.
Of course, its Harrelson’s unorthodox diet and outspoken political views that get the most attention – culminating in one epic paragraph that pretty much nails why I dig this man’s take on living.
“He doesn’t eat sugar or flour. He doesn’t eat dairy. He doesn’t consume meat. He looks more like thirty-nine than fifty. He does consume marijuana, but preferably via a vaporizer, which is said to be healthier but kind of lacks the same punch as smoking. He lives with his family on a working organic farm on Maui — biodiesel tractor, five different kinds of avocado trees, tons of coconuts. When his eldest daughter turned four, after more than two years of agitation, she was allowed to sample chicken for the first time. Harrelson lobbied for a total experience, including a backyard slaughter. Mom opted for store-bought. ‘Tastes just like tofu,’ his daughter concluded.”
Ha, love it! There are also mentions of his dislike for anything chemically-treated, distrust of electromagnetic radiation (his cell phone stays off while in his pocket), and desire to only travel in energy-efficient vehicles.
Check out the full piece here. The random appearance in the interview by Blaine is particularly funny – only because David Blaine is generally annoying. But I’d love to see this trick.
