One of Woody Harrelson's most noted lines in the film is his preparation instructions for his steak in the fancy restaurant. In real life, Woody Harrelson is a known and added vegan. This is not his only film with a food moment that he wouldn't actually eat. In Zombieland (2009), he is obsessed with finding and eating a Twinkie. The Twinkie he eventually eats was special made to accommodate his dietary restrictions.
