Colin Farell is on the cover of the latest issue of Details magazine in promotion for his new movie ‘Seven Psychopaths’. He talks about how he stopped drinking, and how that’s changed his career and his life.
Talking about boozing, he says, “The bottom line is I ended up miserable. I’d done enough of a job of flagrantly abandoning myself in a very loud and public way that I began to fall apart, you know? There was a time when I needed to do three or four films at once. It was the best place for me to hide.”
He also talks about being a ‘serial’ liar, saying, “Oh, I wouldn’t tell a truth all day,” he says flatly. “If I’d had chicken and beans for dinner, I’d tell you I had steak and potatoes. No purpose, just habit. The amount of energy you have to put in and the amount of lies you have to tell to keep a drug habit alive, it’s fairly significant. Your whole life is a lie.”
He adds that he hasn’t been in a relationship for a while, and that he’s saving his commitment for the right time. “I haven’t been in a relationship in a while,” he says. “Two and a half years since I was with Henry’s mother. If I ever do get involved with somebody again, I will try as much as possible to shut my f–king mouth and stay f–king present. Love in action, man! Not love in f–king words.
Farrell recently talked about how the 'Seven Psychopaths' script 'slapped him in the face.
