Michael J. Fox and lifelong friend Woody Harrelson may as well be blood brothers.

While presenting Fox with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the 2022 Governors Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday, Harrelson recounted a shocking tale from when he visited the “Back to the Future” star in Thailand in 1989.

Harrelson, 61, said he and Fox, also 61, went out one night when they stumbled upon a kid putting on a fight “between a cobra and a mongoose.”

“He taunted a bunch of these cobras and then he found the orneriest cobra, grabbed it by the neck, threw it in a cage with mongoose, where I saw the craziest fight I’ve ever seen between any animals other than studio executives,” the “Zombieland” actor joked.

“And the mongoose won, they took the snake, yep, tied it by its tail, run the blood out, half-filled four glasses with cobra blood and half with Thai whiskey,” he continued, noting that “drinking the cobra blood is called ‘becoming brother to the snake.’”

Although Harrelson said his Canadian buddy can usually “hold his own” when it comes to drinking, the “Hunger Games” actor reveled that Fox “promptly vomited his snake cocktail.”

After recalling the jaw-dropping tale, Harrelson went on to praise Fox, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 1991, for turning “a chilling diagnosis into a courageous mission.”
