BBC News reports that Colin Farrell has entered rehab. His publicist explained that he is suffering from “exhaustion” and addiction to prescription drugs.
Exhaustion! And oh yeah, drugs. Can’t forget the drugs.
Now why would Colin Farrell, notorious womanizer and party-boy, be tired? Is he tired of drinking? Tired of smoking? Tired of dancing? Tired of women trying to sell videotapes of him having sex with them? No, it must be the rigorous acting schedule!
Colin Farrell is a big movie star, starring in The New World, to be released on Christmas, so he got to finish up shooting on Miami Vice before checking in. Of course.
Had Phone Booth been a bigger hit, perhaps he wouldn’t have turned to drugs. Then again, had Alexander not sucked, maybe he’d be taking more. It’s so hard to say.
