Colin Farrell Tells 'Men's Health' He Is 'Okay' With Being Single

Colin Farrell Tells 'Men's Health' He Is 'Okay' With Being Single

Colin Farrell is dapper on the cover of Men’s Health magazine’s September 2015 issue, out on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 39-year-old True Detective star told the mag:

On how he quit smoking: “I wrote a breakup letter to the Spirit of Tobacco. I got a frying pan and tossed the letter with a load of tobacco, put some paraffin over it, and lit a match that sent a big, wallowing cloud up into the sky. Then I didn’t have a cigarette for another two years.”

On being single for five years: “It’s not that I don’t get lonely sometimes, but I’m okay about it.”

On what is important to him: “The most significant aspect of my life lives far away from anywhere that a camera is needed. You play the part and do interviews but don’t overextend yourself or put on a mask or change your name. Because when you get home, the only thing that matters is your son is not eating his turkey sandwiches and he’s not into avocado anymore, so you have to find something new that he’ll eat for lunch.”
