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.”

But Harrelson said after running into Willie Nelson, who is known for his love of getting high, the temptation became harder than ever to resit.

“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.”

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.
