Actor Ted Danson has confirmed a TV myth that he and Cheers co-star Woody Harrelson once had a scare while taking hallucinogenic mushrooms. The star was asked about the story during an appearance on U.S. chat show Conan on Tuesday night (04Feb14) and initially denied it, but he eventually revealed that the two pals got high on a cast boat trip off the coast of California. He recalled, "We were in the harbour, I hadn't had any breakfast, I have the munchies and Woody says, 'Have you ever tried mushrooms?' "I have a free day, I'm on a boat... I will be called upon by nobody, I'm not responsible for anything today. How wonderful... I ate way more than my share and for the next three hours I died. "I would forget to breathe and George Wendt, who's so bored that I'd done this... would look at me and go, 'BREATHE!'"
