Colin Farrell Shares Life Lessons at Pendulum Summit 2019

Colin Farrell speaks on stage during day one of the 2019 Pendulum Summit!

The 42-year-old Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them actor attended the event held at the Convention Centre on Wednesday (January 9) in Dublin, Ireland.

Colin shared that he has finally found happiness after years of debauchery and drunken behavior, and he admitted that he has read every negative review of Alexander.

“I have read copious amount of negative press about myself, my life lives majority in positivity, so I try to avoid it,” he said (via Daily Mail). “Alexander was a huge film, a bunch of Irish lads playing big roles and we all thought we were all off to Hollywood, and the film didn’t work. It was an extraordinary box office flop, I set myself up for a fall, I remember saying, ‘If this fails, I’m in trouble, because I put everything in this film.’”

“I’d had such a grand six or seven years, a meteoric rise, but I didn’t make that, Hollywood made that, it’s just about the hype,” he continued. “I needed that lesson, and that humility, I felt like I let everyone down, I took it very personally, I wanted to apologize to everyone I met for six months. As a 23-year-old, of course it affected me.”

He added, “I can’t reiterate enough, I have lived a very blessed life, such great fortune and two extraordinary kids and a great family, deep friendships and a job that I’m passionate about. Success is such a relative term, I don’t wake up thinking I’ve made it, and fame doesn’t give you happiness.”

“Having said all that I’m a human being, I have ups and downs, at 42 the process of my life seems to be in learning the significance of your life as an individual and we’re here for such a short time, I mean, Jesus, the show is nearly over,” he said. “Let’s push away from the harbor and get this show on the road, live in less and less fear and not care as much. It’s important to care what each other think, it’s a form of social moderation, but we don’t have to do things for the sole purpose of being liked.”

Finally, when asked about his love life, Colin replied, “Of course I love life.”
