Harrelson responded to Danson's claims saying, "Well, that’s not exactly true. I don’t like to have to be readily available to any human being at any time. And, that’s not the reason. I like to be in touch with people, in a way, but I don’t like the appendage on my appendage.”

The True Detective star clarified that he stopped using a phone three and a half years ago because he was using it obsessively. Harrelson claimed he caught himself being distracted by his phone even over dinner with someone, and there was a lull in the conversation. Furthermore, he mentioned that he answered a lot of texts rather than using apps or making calls.
