Woody Harrelson: Big tipper?
It looks like Woody Harrelson has won over a new fan.
According to an onlooker who spilled to the New York Daily News, the actor was approached by a homeless woman as he was leaving a birthday party for fellow thespian Carol Kane at Bar Centrale in Hell’s Kitchen on Sunday.
But instead of blowing her off, he reportedly reached into his pocket and peeled off $600!
The lady - who wound up recognizing the actor - was understandably overjoyed.
She was so happy, she's said to have yelled, “Woody! White men CAN jump!” referring to his 1992 classic, “White Men Can’t Jump.”
It's likely that Harrelson didn't have to think twice about his generosity. A lot more green is sure to roll in once his new HBO series “True Detective,” with his best Hollywood bud Matthew McConaughey, takes off, not to mention that "Hunger Games" paycheck.

woody's girlfriends are not right in the head.
we can go its too sad.
Woody is awesome, handsome, and toasty hot. He has always stood up for those less fortunate, and seems to have a very clear idea of what it means to be a decent human being.
how sweet of you too back up woody.
Oh please. How convenient 'someone' witnessed this gift giving just before play opens. Pretty slick pr:/
Whether her drug of choice is meth,rock or whatever it isn't about that as long as he gave from his heart is all that matters,Woody will be further blessed.
$600 probably buys a year's supply of meth.
wonder how quickly that 600 was spent on white rock
Its nice to hear about celebrities like this,actors who actually have talent and are decent people,and who give because they like to,not to make pictures for the cameras.
Plus he likes the weed,but isnt all retarded about it.
I'm a cab driver in Boulder, Co. I once gave Woody a ride from Boulder to Denver International Airport (DIA). When I dropped him at the gate, he gave me all the cash in his wallet AND a hug. Plus, he told me funny stories complete with goofy faces all the way there. Truly an awesome dude! Thanx, Woody!!!
nice to hear something nice . that woman will appreciate it always . will never 4get his good deed and remember him foundly
It is always nice to read about people doing good deeds. Woody was very generous with that poor women. I'll bet she will always remember his kind gesture for the rest of her life. Too bad we don't hear more stories like this one. Way to go, Woody!
He probably thought he was buying weed off of her
Nice to here about some good things in the hollywood world.
this just makes him even hotter.
