|With Woody Harrelson in the Soho Hotel|
That's why I'm looking forward to seeing his film Lost in London which he wrote, produced and stars in and in based on a riotous night out he had in London a few years ago.
"It was a terrible night that I wanted to forget," he tells me when we talk in London at the Soho Hotel. "Then I thought it could be a good comedy because its about the stuff that happened to me in the course of a night---having an altercation with a taxi driver, running from the police, spending time in jail....and it's also about a guy--me--who has it all and when he is threatened with losing it he really appreciates how great he has it, and has a shot at redemption."
And running from the police?
"I've run from the police a few times in my life and I don't recommend it because it doesn't pay off," he says with a grin.
Woody, 54, currently starring as the hard-nosed Colonel in War For the Planet of the Apes, has had plenty of problems with authority figures in his life. "The ones I had the hardest times with were some police in Ohio, a judge in Massachusetts and lots of people from the jurisprudence system," he says.
