Colin, Colin Farrell Biography
Colin Farrell was born in May of 1976 in Dublin, Ireland. He grew up in the Castleknock area of Dublin. He attended Gormanston College in Country Meath. Farrell has stated that he was inspired to become an actor when the movie E.T., brought him to tears. He auditioned for the Irish musical group Boyzone, but was rejected. He later attended the Gaiety School of Acting and once he got a job on a BBC television show, Ballykissangel, he dropped out of acting school.
Farrell was in trouble with the law at one time. When he was 18, Farrell was traveling through Australia and was picked up in Sydney because he fit the description of an attempted murder suspect. Farrell and a friend were drinking and ingesting MDMA, so Farrell could not account for his actions that night. However, his friend had written down their actions and their location that night in his journal and Farrell was released.
Farrell’s first film role was in a little known movie, “Ordinary Decent Criminal”. It was his 2000 film, Tiger land, which earned him real recognition. This talented young actor has gone on to make numerous blockbuster movies including American Outlaws, Phone Booth, The Recruit, In Bruges, (which earned him a Golden Globe Award), Fright Night, Total Recall, Horrible Bosses, Seven Psychopaths, Dead Man Down, and Winter’s Tale, just to name a few.
Farrell has been perhaps just as famous for his private life as he is for his hit movies. His former Playboy model girlfriend attempted to distribute a sex tape that the pair had made. They settled the matter out of court for an undisclosed sum. Farrell obtained a restraining order against a telephone sex worker who claimed Farrell was sending her abusive text messages. He also attended a rehab center for drug addiction in 2005.
Farrell bought a Hollywood mansion in 2011 valued at $1.2 million and later gave it to his now ex-girlfriend Alicja Bachleda after they broke up. Farrell has a net worth of $30 million and has a new movie due to be released in mid-November of 2016, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is sure to increase Farrell’s net worth.
