What has happened to Colin Farrell?

Farrell

The UK tab Daily Mail recently spotted a man they claim is Colin Farrell looking like a ghost of his former self:

"The emaciated 32-year-old was snapped during a night out in Spain at the weekend. It was impossible to miss his hollow cheeks, sunken chest and stick-thin legs as he puffed away on a cigarette. There was speculation that Farrell had shed weight because of the demands of the film he is currently shooting in the southern Spanish city of Alicante. He is starring alongside Spanish actress Paz Vega and British film veteran Christopher Lee in a thriller entitled Triage. It tells the story of a war photographer who loses his best friend during a harrowing assignment in war-torn Bosnia during the early 1990s."

Other recent shots show him looking thin but with some sort of belly.

Let's hope it's all for the movie role.

  1. Great bulge in the first shot. Here's hoping is altered state is attributable to his film.

  2. Look at that man meat in the before photo, gobble, gobble. I am thinking it is for the role, otherwise if he looked like that on purpose, he would not have the strength for a film. Unless he is filming the life of Amy Winehouse.

  3. Wow, Colin. That is not a good look for you. I hope you're getting some help baby-boy.

    And I wouldn't wish The Amy Crackhouse Curse on my worst frenemy!

  4. They don't look alike. Different man?

  5. The battle of who saw the bulge first...and it is a nice one. Of course, as I said a thousand times on this blog and others, I am not a size queen--I swear on the grave of John Holmes.

    How do actors get that kind of discipline to loose that much weight for a film? "Starving for your art,"...Tallulah used to call it that.

  6. The movie he's filming appears to be a remake of "Dream a Little Dream."

  7. At least we'll always have the sex tape.

  8. He's in character for a movie and he's now sober...lots of drunks lose weight after they get sober. No big surprise.

  9. Well if it's for a role, okay then.

    (pic #1) Now, back to the package: I truly didn't know he was THAT blessed!

  11. Yeah but lots of ex-drunks replace one addiction with another.

  12. Have NONE OF YOU taken a bad picture before?

    Posted by: Gregoire | May 14, 2008 10:56:48 AM


  13. @ davefromtampa, the Amy comparison was too fuh-nay! The 1st pic is yummers! Which reminds me to re-watch the sex tape, for the fifty'leven time!!

    Posted by: Shabaka | May 14, 2008 11:01:32 AM


  14. No, Gregoire, I haven't, the impertenence. "Clutches pearls"

    Posted by: davefromtampa | May 14, 2008 11:04:28 AM


  15. Oh give me a break, that is not Colin Farrell on the right. Certainly not if you compare it to the photos linked to of him in a striped shirt with a belly, or even the pics of him at the most recent Oscars.

    If it WAS him, the only way he'd be able to get that thin so quickly is by drinking heroin and crystal meth milkshakes while RUNNING to work each day. Come on.

    PS Haven't you whores seen the sex tape? He has a nice unit but I think it's been chipped by the CDC, if you know what i mean.

  17. i volunteered at an AIDS hospice for a couple of years in the 90s. the guy on the right has wasting disease or is severely into meth. i hope it's not colin.

  18. @ NIC

    You know, there is a decidedly unhealty look about the person in that picture. It's mostly in the eyes.

    IF it IS Colin, and he has indeed lost the weight for a role, then I would certainly question the ethics of all those involved in supporting what looks to be a rather dangerous commitment to the project.

    And after spending 23 years in San Francisco, I know what the aftermath of a severe meth addiction looks like too.

    I hope this is not the case.

  19. Freddy, no, we don't understand what you mean. Are you talking about whether he's circumcised or not?

    Posted by: Tread | May 14, 2008 12:54:41 PM


  20. Tread - he means the CDC is tracking it because it has been in so many cooches. The CDC is responsible for outbreaks of STDs (in case you didn't know).

  21. Why does everyone automatically assume it's meth? I did meth for 2 years back in my hard-core party days (when I was in a soul-killing industry) and never looked that bad. You can do it and still take care of yourself and be fine if you're not dumb about it.

    Maybe he's just dedicated to a very strict diet for a movie role like Christian Bale did for "The Machinist".

  22. That is NOT Colin Farrell on the right -- anyone with a brain can see that. Why would you even post this??

    Posted by: Troy | May 14, 2008 1:09:12 PM


  23. It doesn't look like the same person to me. But Chad, while it may have been possible for you to do meth on a sustainable basis, that's not the case for many people. I've never understood its appeal (I like to sleep), but it goes without saying that it's highly addictive and very hard on your body and brain.

    Posted by: Paul R | May 14, 2008 1:14:43 PM


  24. I HOPE THAT IT'S NOT COLIN. I ALSO HOPE THE GUY IN THE PIC IS OK. WHEN I FIRST GOT INTO METH I WENT FROM 298 TO 151 IN JUST OVER A YEAR. I THOUGHT I LOOKED GREAT. STORE CLERKS WHO KNEW ME WOULD LOOK AT ME SO WEIRD. SINCE THEY WERE FAT (SO I DECIDED) I THOUGHT THEY WERE HATIN'.

    SOME OF YOU SAY IT CAN'T BE METH. METHINKS WHOEVER IS IN THAT PIC IS ON METH. I HOPE NOT. IT'S AN UGLY LIFE AND I'M GLAD I'M OUT OF IT. HOPEFULLY IT'S FOR A ROLE.

    OH YEAH, I'VE SEEN THE TAPE AND MAYBE I'M RUINED BY ALL THE GAY PORN I WATCHED ON METH BUT I DIDN'T THINK HE WAS PACKING ALL THAT MUCH.

  25. Well, he is infamous for fucking every piece of ass in holywood from women to men.

    He was also supposedly a rent boy discovered by Kevin Spacey.

    Maybe he caught something while doing something sans condom.

    He also supposedly has had a huge drug problem. Maybe he shot up with a dirty needle.
