Colin Farrell talks drug use

colin-farrell Appearing on The Late Late Show, Colin Farrell opened up about his hard-partying past.

The actor had battled his addiction problems long before he became famous. After filming Miami Vice he decided to go to a rehab. “Miami Vice wrapped…and I was put on a plane and sent to rehab,” he revealed, adding that it was his family who convinced him to seek help.

”I’d gotten out of control – for years I could indulge in certain things … I had quite a high tolerance for various drugs for years, I thought. It accumulated to the point where I couldn’t put my foot on the brake anymore,” he said.

I was very drunk and high for 16 years, so it was a tough life change, and I was dying. I’m one of the lucky ones.”

    Fresh news! Colin Ferrell is a fine actor. I’m glad he kicked drugs and alcohol. I also hope it lasts, the effect achieved. Too many get back t the old trap that is sadly enough. Now maybe he will get better roles.
