Colin Farrell Opens Up About His Past: 'I Became A Parody'

Colin Farrell is dapper in a grey suit while attending the premiere of his latest film The Lobster held at The Lighthouse Cinema on Thursday (October 8) in Dublin, Ireland.

The 39-year-old actor was joined on the red carpet by his co-star Ariane Labed and director/screenwriter of the flick Yorgos Lanthimos.

Colin recently opened up about his past and what led him to check into rehab.

“I became a parody. Everything was magnified: the opportunities I had, the money I earned. So the smokescreen [I created] was magnified: it was the one true consistency I had. That was like a cancer after a while. If you build a dam, water becomes a bigger version of itself,” Colin expressed (via The Telegraph). “Then the dam broke, and I thought, ‘I don’t know who I am any more, what I’ve become.’ One of the most liberating days of my life was in rehab, when I realised how many fears I had. Was I smart or dumb? Was I a good lover, son, father, actor?”

FYI: Colin is wearing Dolce&Gabbana.

    He’s actually a pretty introspective man, if you listen to what he has to say. Watch his Tavis Smiley interview if you have the chance-well I mean if you are a fan, as I am, of his work.

  • Allie Maine

    Great actor but the hard lifestyle cost him his looks. He looks thin and the stache and hair are no t doing him any favors.

  • Anna

    He’s starting to shape up. The guy has changed a lot, which is great to see. I think now he should focus on building his career with great scripts. I know it’s hard since he wants to provide for his 2 sons, and money is important since you can’t pick and choose scripts when you have a family to feed. Wish him luck. He really is an amazing actor and I hope he goes back to the top.
