With Woody Harrelson in the Soho Hotel
    Woody Harrelson is one of those easy-going, dope-smoking off-the-wall guys who says exactly what he thinks and appears to have no regrets about anything he's done, no matter how outrageous. 
  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.
