Birthday Boy: Woody Harrelson

On the 23rd of July, Woody Harrelson celebrates his birthday.


Harrelson was born on July 23, 1961, in Midland, Texas. His childhood was rough, because his father Charles was in jail for manslaughter. Harrelson and his siblings were raised by their mother in Lebanon, Ohio.

Woody first came in contact with acting as an extra in Harper Valley P.T.A. (1978), a not so successful comedy.

His first bigger role was in the popular TV series Cheers (1985-1993), while his first serious movie role was opposite Wesley Snipes in White Men Can't Jump (1992).

Harrelson has more than 90 titles in his resume, with three Oscar nominations for movies: The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996), The Messenger (2009) and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017).

Harrelson is married to Laura Louie, and they are raising their three kids together. Find out more about him, and click on the video above!
