Who is Zoe Giordano Harrelson?
Being raised as a celebrity child for Zoe might be both a blessing and a curse, since she is perhaps only known as the daughter of famous actor Woody Harrelson, and his wife Laura Louie. Although she is an actress, many people recognize her as Woody’s daughter, thus she seems to have given up her acting career, since she has just one credit to her name. She was seen as a Daughter in the 2015 short music drama “U2: Song for Someone (Version 1)”, directed by Vincent Haycock, also starring her father, in the movie which follows the story of an inmate (Woody Harrelson) released from prison, and at the end of the video, the young woman picks him up, and that girl who drives a car, was portrayed by Zoe.
Early life and education
Zoe Giordano Harrelson was born under the zodiac sign of Virgo on 22 September 1996, in Los Angeles, California USA; she holds American nationality and comes from a family of English, Scottish, German, Welsh and distant Dutch descent. She was raised with two sisters, Makani and Deni, by her parents – her mother Laura Louie is the co-founder of Yoganics, an organic food delivery service, and most of their childhood the girls spent on the island of Maui. Zoe had an interest in performing from an early age, and was a member of the school’s drama club, however, growing-up, she developed an interest in creative writing and sports.

As mentioned, her acting career started and seems to have ended in 2015, after which she hasn’t shared any details concerning her career – it’s assumed that she focused on her education, and might launch a career in a field away from the public eye .
Love life and relationships
Zoe hasn’t been the subject of any rumors and controversies concerning her love life and sexual orientation, mostly because she prefers to keep her personal matters away from the limelight.
As of May 2022, Zoe seems to be single, she hasn’t been married or engaged and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Zoe has no accounts on any social media platforms, at least not under her real name, but it isn’t surprising that she might be against this sort of association, since it’s known that in her high school, she was the main spokesperson for TED Talk, an influential video, and the main message of her speech was: ‘We need to disconnect from phones that are removing us from reality and moments better spent experiencing them then wrapped up in a device.’ Zoe was brought up with an awareness of the social issues that people had throughout the years, and she intended to promote awareness of these issues, saying that this was the reason why she joined TEDxYouth.

Who is Woody Harrelson?
Woodrow Tracy ‘Woody’ Harrelson is a playwright and theatre director, and an actor with over 100 credits to his name, who was nominated for the Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in the movie “The People vs. Larry Flynt” in 1997, and two times Oscar-nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for his roles in movies “The Messenger” in 2010, and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” in 2018. Woody was born under the zodiac sign of Leo on 23 July 1961, in Midland, Texas USA, where he was raised by his mother Diane, who was a secretary, and his father, Charles Voyde Harrelson, a convicted hitman and organized crime figure, alongside his two brothers Jordan and Brett, who is also an actor.
Woody’s father received a life sentence for the killing of federal judge John H. Wood Junior, so most of his childhood Woody and his brothers spent with their mother, struggling to survive relied on her wages. Woody moved to his maternal grandparents in Lebanon, Ohio when he was 12 years old, where he attended a local high school, and upon matriculating in 1979, he enrolled at Hanover College, in Indiana, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Theatre and English in 1983. He made his acting debut portraying Woody Boyd in “Cheers” in 1985, and then in the following year made his big-screen debut in the movie “Wildcats”, and concurrently with his role in “Cheers”, he was seen starring in the movies “She’s Having a Baby” (1988), “Cool Blue” (1989), “Mother Goose Rock ‘n’ Rhyme” (1990), and “Indecent Proposal” (1993).
In the late ‘90s, Woody focused on acting in movies, and since the list of his roles is too long to enumerate, we will mention some of his most notable, such as in “Natural Born Killers” (1994), “Money Train” (1995), and certainly one of his most notable roles as Larry Flynt, which brought him his first Oscar nomination, in the 1996 biographical drama “The People vs. Larry Flynt” directed by Milos Forman. The early 2000s saw Woody in “Scorched” (2003), “She Hates Me”( 2004), “The Big White” (2005), and “The Walker” (2007), among others, and then in 2009, he was cast to play Captain Tony Stone in the romantic war drama “The Messenger”, also starring Ben Foster and Samantha Morton, which besides Woody’s Oscar nomination, was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Writing, Original Screenplay.
In the following years, the audience enjoyed watching Woody in “Rampart”, “The Hunger Games” and its sequels, “Triple 9” and “The Duel”, among many other movies, while in 2017, he was seen as Willoughby in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” alongside Sam Rockwell and Frances McDormand, and as mentioned, for his performance in this comedy crime drama Woody was nominated for the Oscar. Some of his most recent movie roles have been in “Venom”, “Zombieland: Double Tap”, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage”, and “Triangle of Sadness”, while television audiences have seen him in the series “True Detective” and “The Freak Brothers”.
Speaking of his love life, he was in a marriage with Nancy Simon, the daughter of playwright Neil Simon, but this union wasn’t intended to be serious. The two married in 1985, in Tijuana, Pacific coast of Mexico, and were planning to divorce the day after, however, they didn’t manage to do that because the storefront marriage/divorce parlor was closed, so their divorce was finalized ten months later. Two years later, he met his future wife, Zoe’s mother, Laura Louie, who was working as his personal assistant – the two married in 2008, and are still together in mid-2022.
