Woody Harrelson shamed Hollywood for still having Covid protocols on film sets, saying it hurts the crew.
The actor blasted the entertainment industry for the double standards in enforcing Covid measures.
He revealed that movie stars like himself were not pressured to follow guidelines while film crews were forced to wear masks and get vaccinated or face losing their jobs.
“There are performances where I was like, why couldn’t I just get outside whatever I was doing,” Harrelson said of regrets from his long career.
“Ten years later, I’ll think of something I should have done in a scene, and I want to tear my head off.
“Planet of the Apes” — that’s one of those times where there was so much technology involved in what we were doing, I was a little daunted.
“If I did that part again, I could do it 20 times better.
“There’s several roles that I go back and think: ‘Why didn’t I try this? Why didn’t I do that? Why didn’t I step into a whole ‘nother character?’
“But it’s probably best to let those things drop. They can haunt you.
“The business obviously changed,” he noted.
“Those movies that go into the theaters, people want to see action: Marvel or the Tom Cruise thing.
“Which doesn’t necessarily bode well for a movie like ‘Champions,’ but I’m hopeful that people go see it.
“I don’t know. I’ve been lucky.
“I was glad to do ‘Carnage’ and such, but my heart is more with movies like this and the indies.”
Harrelson then continued by suggesting that independent movies are now struggling due to “absurd” Covid mandates.
“Now to get an indie done?” he said, referring to the post-pandemic era.
“Especially with all the Covid protocols — which, to me, are rather absurd.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen.
The reporter asked, “What’s absurd about the Covid protocols?”
“The fact that they’re still going on,” Harrelson explained.
“I don’t think that anybody should have the right to demand that you’re forced to do the testing, forced to wear the mask, and forced to get vaccinated three years on.
“I’m just like, Let’s be done with this nonsense.
“It’s not fair to the crews.
“I don’t have to wear the mask. Why should they?
“Why should they have to be vaccinated?
“How’s that not up to the individual?
“I shouldn’t be talking about this shit.
“It makes me angry for the crew.
“The anarchist part of me, I don’t feel that we should have forced testing, forced masking, and forced vaccination.
“That’s not a free country. Really I’m talking about the crew.
“Because I can get out of wearing a mask. I can test less.
“I’m not in the same position they’re in, but it’s wrong.
“It’s three years. Stop,” he said.
“Anyway, as an anarchist, I don’t do well with mandates.”
