COLIN Farrell has won a legion of female admirers over the years for his dashing looks.
But the talented actor has also starred in some of the biggest movies in the past few years. Here’s what we know about the Irish charmer…
Who is Colin Farrell?
Colin Farrell is an Irish actor who has starred in a host of hit films from the 1990’s to now.
He was born on May 31, 1976 in Dublin to footballer father Eamon and mother Rita.
Both his dad and uncle Tommy Farell played for the Shamrock Rovers.
Colin has an older brother, Eamon Jr, and two sisters – Catherine and Claudine, who works as his personal assistant.
While at exclusive boys school Gormanston College he auditioned to be in the boyband Boyzone but didn’t make the cut.
Colin claims that Henry Thomas’ performance in E.T touched him so much that it inspired him to become an actor.
He attended the Gaiety School of Acting but dropped out to star in BBC’s Ballykissangel.
As an 18-year-old Colin was travelling in Sydney and got caught up in an attempted murder case.
He was treated as a suspect due to his startling resemblance to the police sketch.
When questioned, Colin was unable to provide an alibi as he said he had blacked out on the night in question.
Fortunately his pal saved his back when he had kept a journal that confirmed the pair had been taking MDMA on the other side of town.
The Irish hunk, 42, is best known for his roles in Minority Support, Dare Devil and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, to name a few.
He has also had a well-documented battle with substance abuse.
Is Colin Farrell married?
Colin has been in the papers for his colourful personal life as much as his extensive film career, but is currently not married.
He first publicly dated English actress and singer Amelia Warner after meeting at the Quills premiere in 2000.
Amelia and Colin were married for four months in 2001, according to People magazine. He was 25 and she was 19 when they got married on the island of Bora Bora.
Who has the star dated?
The playboy dated Amelia Warner – who’s now married to Jamie Dornan- and they were even rumoured to have got married in 2001.
Though she later clarified with The Sun that: “We had a ceremony on a beach in Tahiti that was by no means legal and we knew it wasn’t…
“It was just a thing we did on holiday. We went shark feeding and then we did that. We booked them both on the activities desk at the hotel.”
He’s also been linked to Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie and Demi Moore to name a few.
As well as even being rumoured to have had a flirty fling with Bajan beauty and icon Rihanna after meeting on the Grahm Norton Show.
A source at the time said: “Colin was taken aback by some of the texts. He reckons he might well be in there. They’re both single, so why not?”
As far as we know, he’s currently single.
How many children does Colin have?
Colin and model Kim Bordenave welcomed son James Padraig in 2003.
In 2007 he revealed that James has rare genetic disorder Angelman Syndrome which can cause intellectual delay.
Colin’s second child, Henry Tadeusz, was born on 9 October 2009 – he shares him with polish actress Alicja Bachleda-Curuś.
Colin and his ex Kim filed for a conservatorship of their 17-year-old son, PageSix reported on May 12. The pair requested to legally manage their son James needs once he turns 18 on Sept. 12, 2021.
James has Angelman syndrome, “a genetic disorder which causes developmental delays and disabilities and affects the nervous system,” according to the court papers obtained by PageSix.
The documents note that Colin’s son is “nonverbal, has issues with his fine motor skills and cannot provide for his own health and well-being.”
