    Woody Harrelson Admits He Was So Hungover He Could Barely Stand at Free Birds Premiere

    Folks, take note: Tequila and children's movies do not mix—just ask Woody Harrelson.

    The actor appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote his upcoming flick Free Birds, an animated children's film, but instead of keeping the conversation G-rated, Harrelson opted to share a story from the film's recent Los Angeles premiere, shamelessly admitting that he was so hungover he could barely stand on the red carpet.

    "Well, unfortunately, you know, yesterday morning. Actually I think the premiere was at noon and I went to bed at 6:30 or 7:00 a.m. Having stayed up all night, drinking tequila and playing pool with my brother, which, uh, didn't go well," he confessed with a laugh. "And you know, being waken up, like, three and a half hours later was terrible. It was like a betrayal."

    The 52-year-old actor then struggled to the film's premiere where he enlisted pal and costar Owen Wilson to take the lead on every interview.

    "You know, it's for kids and stuff, and I'm like walking around...not pretty," he said, spinning his head. "But what was terrible was, Owen, you know. We're doing these interviews together and I told him ahead of time, 'Dude, you're going to be...doing all the heavy lifting here.' I can barely stand up."

    Cue Harrelson's mean Owen Wilson impression (seriously, dude's a pro):

    "No problem buddy, just leave it to me," the Wedding Crashers star told Woody.

    "So we'd be in the middle of the interview and luckily he'd be fielding the questions," Harrelson continued. "And they'd ask him a question and talk for a while and then he'd go, 'What do you think, buddy?'" the Hunger Games star admitted. "And I'd be like, 'Well, I agree with you."

    Or maybe that was just the tequila talking.

    Free Birds, which also stars Amy Poehler, Dan Fogler and Keith David, hits theaters Nov. 1.
