Colin Farrell Sober

Actor Colin Farrell gives up the bad boy lifestyle. Read the rest of the story and see photos and video of Colin Farrell below.

Reformed Hollywood bad boy and all around super hottie Colin Farrell has decided to live the “quiet life.” While some think this is a sign that Hollywood just doesn’t care about him anymore, I think it’s a sign of maturity adopted by the father of five year old James.

Farrell burst onto the Hollywood scene and quickly developed a reputation as a drinking, womanizing bad boy. He said:

“I just came in blazing, man. I was 22 or 23 and I didn’t know why or what or how or when – I just enjoyed it. Then I kind of stopped enjoying it. The trip got a little bit out of hand for me, so I just stepped back.�?

While admitting that the 22 year old him would find the current sober version boring, he realized that he had to make a change if he wanted to stay alive and watch his son grow up.

“All the madness and chaos, and all the people around me got so tiring after a while that I had to find another way. And while I don’t live a monk-like existence, I have a new appreciation for solitude that would have terrified me years ago. I’m glad the madness is over.�?

Not only has Farrell cut the booze and drugs out of his life, he’s also cut out the swearing. Quite the tremendous feat for him, given he said “fuck” 143 times in the movie Phone Booth, despite it only being written into the script 28 times.
