Although, to be fair, Colin Farrell hasn’t just gone to rehab for exhaustion. Colin Farrell has gone into rehab for exhaustion and a burgeoning addiction to prescription drugs. But then, hey, if we’d have been in Alexander, we’d have hit the Dilaudid pretty hard, too.
Collin Farrell (DVDs), probably most famous for his role in BBC1 Sunday teatime series Ballykissangel, has reportedly checked himself into rehab for
exhaustion and an addiction to prescription medication.
The move came
immediately after Farrell finished the spectacularly troubled Miami
Vice shoot – filming was held up, among other things, by hurricanes and
an actual gunfight. Details on the Colin Farrell rehab jaunt are scant, and Farrell’s publicist Danica Smith gave nothing away by saying:
"We ask that the press respect the privacy of Mr Farrell and his family."
into rehab is just the latest crazy exploit of Colin Farrell, who has
something of a badboy reputation. As well as being seemingly drunk all
the time, he’s also got a filthy filthy mouth. And then, of course,
there’s the sex.
If Colin Farrell isn’t endlessly hounding pensioner actresses for a bit of sex, he’s suing Playmates for trying to distribute homemade Colin Farrell porn across the Internet. And then there was that whole Britney Spears thing, which we’re not even close to understanding.
Still, at least it’s given us a reason to go and watch Miami Vice
when it comes out in the summer. Sure, it’s another imagination-drained
TV remake, but it’ll also be the best place to see Colin Farrell in all his
pre-rehab, sweaty, red-eyed, shaky, fat glory.
