If you invite Kal Penn over for dinner, don’t bother asking him to smoke marijuana afterwards.
Or eat burgers for dinner.
The Harold and Kumar star was known for getting stoned and eating White Castle burgers in the movie, and unfortunately Penn says this translates into some people thinking he’s like his character.
From The Insider:
“It’s sad for the people who offer me a joint because I don’t smoke weed in real life. I was also a vegetarian when we shot the first movie and that was about burgers. I don’t go out of my way to tell people I was a vegetarian or that I don’t smoke weed, because I don’t want them to be disappointed. If you want to keep the suspension of disbelief that’s OK, but then sometimes it’s weird.”
So there. The suspense is over.
Keep your burgers and your joints to yourself.
Penn recently left his job at the White House as Associate Director of Public Engagement to film the new Christmas themed Harold and Kumar movie.
During the Harold And Kumar Go To White Castle movie, Kal was given veggie burgers made to look real once he and co-star John Cho finally made it White Castle.
