Actors Woody Harrelson, in town shooting the movie “Zombieland,” and Bill Murray, here working on the film “Get Low,” have both been spotted taking in the, um, sights at the Clermont Lounge.
We hear from sources at the legendary Ponce de Leon Avenue exotic dancing landmark that Murray was enjoying two popular beverages at the infamous dive bar: Pabst Blue Ribbons and bargain whiskey from the bartender’s well rack.
Alas, we’ve been unable to confirm whether Murray or Harrelson have as yet been treated to a poetry reading/lap dance from Blondie, the club’s most famous dancer.
There’s also been no official response from the actors on how they responded when one young female fan reportedly straddled Murray excitedly while telling him that he reminded her of her dad. Murray gallantly helped the potentially tipsy fan to the exit.
The actors have also been regulars at Loca Luna, the Latin tapas and mojito emporium over on Amsterdam Avenue in Midtown as well.

“A lot of women, when they’re young, present themselves in a more sexualized way. And you see Jane Fonda in this period, a little more sexed up, shall we say. And then, once these women start getting nominated for Oscars, they button up every button to the chin. You never see them go there again.”
