Woody Harrelson praises Canada's green lifestyle

Woody Harrelson likes working in Canada because it's more ''eco-conscious'' than the US.

The veteran 'Kingpin' actor is directing his second play in Toronto, 'Bullet for Adolf', and said he loves working there as people are much more actively involved with the green initiatives he supports.

Speaking to Toronto based website www.thevarsity.ca he said: ''I love it here. I think they're much more receptive here to environmental issues. It's more the mainstay here to be green or eco-conscious. Even eating, I think people tend to eat a little bit healthier than Middle America.''

Woody also talked about his pro-marijuana stance, saying people have paid too much attention to it ever since a TV appearance in the 90s, rather than the other good environmental work he has done.

He added: ''I appeared on Bill Maher's 'Politically Incorrect'. So, when I went on it with him, y'know, I don't know what I was thinking even doing that.

''It's kind of a suicide move, but I went on, and from that day it's never stopped, never close to stopped. I just find it annoying because it's so superficial, and such a - well, would you care so much if I drank? Would you care so much if I took pharmaceuticals?

''I do think that when you live in a country that calls itself free then you have to examine, y'know, what does it mean to be free? And so, I think you can do anything you want as long as you're not hurting someone else, or hurting their property. That's freedom.''
