First Twinkies, now Method Acting

April 18, 2009

What next for a defense? From Newsweek:

Woody Harrelson was en route to New York after wrapping “Zombieland,” in Georgia — a horror flick costarring Jesse Eisenberg and Emma Stone in which Harrelson was repeatedly attacked by zombies.

So when a TMZ paparazzo got in his face for a photograph, Harrelson allegedly lunged for the lens, shoved the guy and attacked back — and now blames those actions on his film-honed, fast-twitch zombie-defense reflexes.


Per the statement Harrelson made through his publicist late Friday, which was summarily blasted by CNN and others:

“I wrapped a movie called Zombieland, in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character. With my daughter at the airport I was startled by a paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie.”

Quite. Understandably. That’s happened to me, too.
