Woody Harrelson became a household name back in 1985 when he began his starring role as Woody Boyd on Cheers. Since appearing as Billy Hoyle in 1992's White Men Can't Jump, Harrelson has landed dozens of roles in films like The People vs. Larry Flynt, Anger Management, No Country for Old Men, Zombieland and in 2012 began his tenure as Haymitch Abernathy in the Hunger Games films.
In 2016, he depicted former president Lyndon B. Johnson in the film LBJ and that same year appeared alongside Hailee Steinfeld in The Edge of Seventeen. His 2017 performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri earned him his third Academy Award nomination.
More recently, audiences saw Harrelson in Triangle of Sadness, The Man from Toronto and this year's Champions. In 2023, he also starred alongside Justin Theroux in White House Plumbers.
Over the years, Harrelson has had a few run-ins with the law including an arrest in the late 1990s after joining an anti-logging protest on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and another in 2002 for getting into a fight with a cab driver.
Harrelson married his wife, Laura Louie, in 2008, and together they live in Maui, Hawaii. They share three daughters, Deni, Zoe and Makani.
