For Woody Harrelson, his love towards Laura Louie was like “an itch inside my teeth.” The pair met during the shooting of the sitcom Cheers, and Louie ended up becoming Woody’s assistant. As the years passed, Woody started falling in love with Louie. A man known for having grand one-night stands now had someone who he genuinely believed he loved. After playing with his feelings for quite a while, Woody put everything into a song and played it for Louie. Luckily for the man, Louie felt no different, and the pair have been together for over three decades. And over the years, Willie has credited Louie for helping him get through the early humps of his career. So, for this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Laura Louie.
Bits and pieces:
Laura Louie was born in 1965 to an Asian-American family in the United States. Born and raised in the states, not much is known about Louie, and she has revealed nothing about it. Following her high school graduation in 1983, Laura enrolled at university and graduated with a degree in business management and environmental sciences.
Not much is known about Louie’s life before she met Woody. The pair met in 1987 and Louie agreed to become his assistant. She served as his assistant for two and a half years before they started dating. Following her relationship with Woodie, Louie established the organic food delivery service, Yoganics. She wanted to promote healthy eating and wanted to make sure that it was accessible to everyone. She also started the website, Voice Yourself, alongside her husband. The website which was later taken over by Robert and Mary-Jo, is dedicated to encouraging an organic way of life.
Woody and Louie first met in 1987 when Louie came down to the shooting for one of the episodes for the sitcom, Cheers. Woody shouted at the audience if anyone would like to become his assistant. Louie raised her hands and she started working as an assistant three days after her first encounter with Woody. She worked as an assistant for three years before Woody started realizing that he had feelings for Louie. The big revelation came in 1989 when Woody went off to Africa for Christmas and started fantasizing about Louie. On his return, Woody played a song he had written for her and the pair have been together ever since.
The pair began dating in 1989, and welcomed their first child, Deni Montana Harrelson, on the 5th of March 1994. Their second child, Zoe Giordano Harrellson, was born in 1996, and their third child, Makani Ravello Harrelson was born in 2006. The pair tied the knot at a small event in 2008 in Maui, Hawaii, and have been living there ever since.
A constant rock by his side:
Over the years, Louie has been a constant rock by Woody’s side. When his sex-tape was exposed, Louie sympathized with her husband and while it took a good Texan grovel for her to forgive him, things worked out for the pair in the end.
“Laura — this really gives you a sense of the depth of her compassion — what she said to me after finding out was, “That must be really hard for you, to have this shit exposed.” She just said that. Now that doesn’t mean she wasn’t upset. How did I apologize? You know, just your standard Texan grovel. But she forgave me, and we’re still together.”
