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.
