Irish actor Colin Farrell has opened up about the alcohol addiction that nearly cost him his life. Colin claims that he could feel his body shutting down and thought that he was on the verge of death. He also admitted that he has had an addictive personality since he was a small boy.
Speaking to the Sunday Times magazine, Farrell said, “Obviously I'm not a doctor but you don't have to have a degree in medicine to know when your body's shutting down. I genuinely didn't think I had much longer. I'd reached the point where the only voices that had any clarity in the room were the voices of destruction and obliteration.”
He added, “I've been an addict since I was a kid. I'm not joking man - you can ask my mother. I had a Lion Bar addiction for six months when I was seven. Then I had a Coco Pops addiction. I'd go on Smash mashed potato binges, tins of tuna benders. Anything. I'd get addicted to a crosswind. Whatever made me feel good.”
Colin Farrell stars alongside Christopher Walken and Helena Mattsson in the movie Seven Psychopaths, which was released in the US on October 12 and is set to be released in the UK on December 5.
