The cool teacher from "The Edge of Seventeen" blamed 30 years of partying too hard.

"I feel like it was keeping me from being emotionally available," Harrelson said, adding, "I really don’t want this interview to turn into a whole thing about that."

Woops, too late. But the party's not completely over.

"I still drink," he said. "But I try to be moderate with the drinking, too."
