Peer pressure is real.

Woody Harrelson made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, where he opened up about what finally made him smoke pot again after quitting for several years.

“I quit for almost two years. No smoking, no vaping,” he said. “Every once in a while you’re going to have something edible. Let’s be real, I’m not a nun.”

“He was never comfortable with me quitting, it just bothered him,” he said. “I would always say, ‘Willie you know I’m not smoking,’ ” he continued. “He would always do the same thing like he was hearing it for the first time, ‘Oh really? Sorry!’ This happened like 500 times.”

After playing a game of poker with the musician, the actor and longtime marijuana advocate said he finally caved.

“I was in a celebratory mood and he hands me that pin and I was just snatched and it was like ‘ah, ---k it,’ ” he said. “I take a big draw of it and he says ‘Welcome home, son.’ ”

Harrelson has a decades-long history supporting the legalization of marijuana and has even served on the advisory board of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.

In April 2016, Harrelson was one of the first to apply to open a medical marijuana dispensary in Hawaii months after the state’s Department of Health approved the production of medical marijuana — though his request was denied.

Harrelson previously said he decided to quit smoking because it was keeping him from being “emotionally available.”

“I am a party animal,” he said in March 2017. “But on the other hand, I’m now extremely moderate, and … I actually stopped smoking pot almost a year ago.”

Woody Allen Says He Should Be 'Poster Boy for the #MeToo Movement' .
Woody Allen says he should be the "poster boy" for the #MeToo movement given that he hasn't been accused of sexual misconduct by any of the actresses with whom he's worked over the years. "I'm a big advocate of the #MeToo movement," Allen said in an interview with Argentinian news program Periodismo Para Todos. "I feel when they find people who harass innocent women and men, it's a good thing that they're exposing them. But you know I, I should be the poster boy for the #MeToo movement. Because I have worked in movies for 50 years. I've worked with hundreds of actresses and not a single one — big ones, famous ones, ones starting out — have ever ever suggested any kind of impropriety at all. I've always had a wonderful record with them." In the interview, the Oscar-winning filmmaker said that it "bothers" him that he gets "linked" to people like Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by dozens and dozens of women.

I think everybody would agree with that … Everyone wants justice to be done. If there is something like the #MeToo movement now, you root for them, you want them to bring to justice these terrible harassers, these people who do all these terrible things.
