Colin Farrell surprised he has a job

Colin Farrell is surprised he still gets acting jobs Colin Farrell is surprised he still gets acting jobs. The Total Recall star, who got his break with sci-fi hit Minority Report in 2002, later spiraled out of control and ended up having to go into rehab for drug abuse in 2005. Colin told Britain's Men's Health magazine: "I had burned so many bridges in the film industry that I couldn't get a f**king meeting. But now I'm just enjoying life... One of the big things I was drawn to about drugs was the ritual." The 36-year-old actor confessed that although he likes to party, makes sure he fills himself with nutrients the rest of the time. He said: "I don't put the same level of energy into healthy living as I did into unhealthy living but I eat really well, drink loads of green tea and take a load of vitamins." Although his less harmful lifestyle is beneficial to his career, Colin is somewhat disappointed that his life turned out so simple. He added: "It's so boring... life has mutated to take on this sweet simplicity that I am really f**king OK with."

    Um…, ya,,….. And you get that how Ash? He’s actually a super nice guy if you ever met him in real life. I’ve had the pleasure of working with him on a few sets including total recal and he’s actully very humble and a little shy. The problem with the film industry is that they allow drugs on a silver platter handed out at their after parties and if your not in control of yourself and you mind you will lose to this everytime thus you will lose in life. That’s why he’s so surprised that he still gets gigs cuz of his past.

    Oh Colin how silly of you, your an amazing actor who hit a few bumps in the road. You should be proud of all your successes as well as your failures. You cannot learn if you don’t make mistakes. You have obviously learned some hard lessons and I see no reason why “the industry” should hold grudges, especially when so many others cannot even own up to their shortfalls. I applaud you and wish you the best in everything you do. Your fan Serena
