Woody Harrelson ‘Insisted’ On Helping Complete Strangers Move Out Of Apartment
Wall Street Journal reporter Alex Janin and her friend, record producer and audio engineer Grant Jefferson were pulling their things out of their New York City apartment over the weekend when they received very casual help from very famous actor Woody Harrelson.
On Saturday, Janin posted a photo on Twitter of her and the “Zombieland” star holding indoor plants and smiling for the camera. The caption, which quickly went viral, read:
“Woody Harrelson helped us move out of our apartment today. I love you nyc "
"I just thought to myself, 'Only in New York,'" Jefferson told HuffPost via email of the experience. "Of course I didn't want to burden him with helping us, but I couldn't refuse to tell the story to my friends."
Jefferson added that the friendly encounter with the actor changed the way he sees celebrities.
"I realized that getting hardened by fame or making you presumptuous may be more of an internal thing than just the result of fame," Jefferson told HuffPost.
In a follow-up tweet, Janin stated that Harrelson was leaving a store next to their building when he saw the couple move. Janin said she had just put her bike in a U-Haul at the exact moment Harrelson was looking for a Citibike station. He asked the couple if they knew where the next one was, they all spoke to each other, and Harrelson - whom Jefferson described as "total dad vibes" - finally insisted on helping them move.
And while the plot was cute (especially since Janin also admitted she lives in a walk-in building), some people on Twitter were distracted by one aspect of Janin's photo - the condition of her violin leaf fig plant.
Apparently, Harrleson wasn't bothering the bush when he saw the plant.
In response to many Twitter users who had problems with the condition of their plant, Janin wrote, “YES, I am aware that my violin sheet is basically dead. And yes, Woody told me to water it more. "
Jefferson told HuffPost that after Harrelson helped the couple move, the "True Detective" star "resumed his search for a Citi bike."
And although the couple eventually got to their new home, the pathetic plant apparently did not.
"We left it on the road for a (hopefully) better home," Jefferson said. “I have a fantasy, Woody came back later and saved her. He was worried. "
