Actor wants to go surfing while he survives on just water

Woody Harrelson plans to live on a remote island and eat nothing for 40 days – to see how the experience affects his brain.

The actor, 46, will go ahead with the experiment as soon as he gets a break in his work schedule.

‘I’ve always wanted to do it,’ he says.

‘I know it’s going to be really hard. But can you imagine it? Eating nothing for 40 days? Swimming and surfing every day in a remote place? Where does the mind go?’

Yoga-loving Woody loves isolated places.

He lives in a quiet farming town with no shops on the Hawaiian island of Maui with wife Laura Louie and their 3 daughters.

‘It’s off the grid, there’s no power lines,’ he tells The Sunday Times Magazine.

‘It’s a real community, like one I’ve never been part of in my life.’
