During his appearance on the February 25 episode of "Saturday Night Live," Woody Harrelson delivered a hilarious monologue touching on a variety of subjects, including his smoking and drinking habits. "The reason I like herbs more than alcohol is because it makes me feel good, no hangovers and I never wake up covered in blood," Harrelson quipped in his speech, sending the audience into a round of laughter.
But things soon took a turn when Harrelson began referencing the COVID-19 pandemic and his suspicions of a conspiracy between the government and medical organizations. The actor recalled reading a script while under the influence on Thanksgiving Day in 2019. The script, according to Harrelson, featured the government imposing drugs on its citizens during a lockdown. "I threw the script away. I mean, who is going to believe that crazy idea? Being forced to do drugs? I do that voluntarily all day long," he added.
Harrelson's February 2023 apperance on "Saturday Night Live" welcomed him to the show's five-timer league. According to Deadline, the "Cheers" actor previously hosted the show four times, with his first time being in 1989, and the most recent being 2019. Other "SNL" five-timers include Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin, and Drew Barrymore.
