Well, my boy's lad's in rehab.

No surprise. I felt this one coming. I've had a bad feeling for a few weeks now, and when I heard Claud was no longer working as his assistant, I knew he was headed for trouble.

He won't make it to the premiere of 'The New World' or do any promotion for the movie, which is a loss for those of us who love to see him flummox the censors.

I guess it's high time he got his shit together. How much of this was brought on by his dreadful disappointment over the reception for 'Alexander'?

Well, hopefully they won't clean up his act too much. I couldn't stand that.

Yeah, we've been talking about that over on my lj. My feeling is that he'll be fine in the long run. He's always been a hard-partying kind of guy, but no Robert Downey, Jr. I think he lives hard, but right now he's just let it get away from him. Of course, that's just my own opinion as a member of the peanut gallery (and frequenter of Snarkfest and the gossip groups on Usenet, lol)

I don't think there's any fear of him cleaning up too much. His bad-boy-ness *is* a crucial part of his charm, after all. ;) One of my flisters had a few minor anecdotal tales to tell since he was in her town doing something or other. I'll look her up after I get home from work and provide a link. Got to go pick up kiddies and dinner right now.

I heard about it this morning. At least, he is getting help now and not waiting until it kills him or interferes with his career. Colin's already done the hard thing by getting help.
'Alexander' may have had something to do with it, too. There's no denying that much.
14th-Dec-2005 07:51 am (UTC) - True...

Yeah. I can totally see that. Wouldn't surprise me at all. I think it killed the guy when "Alexander" bombed...

I bottle of asprin and bottle of booze ( separately) couldn't get rid of the hurt and disappointment from 'Alexander' bombing. I was really excited about and I assume he felt like it was his baby...a very pretty baby that no one else seemed to think was pretty except for him and a select few.

Oh well, Colin will recover and show use his fighting spirit with a super comeback. Hopefully!

My flister gmstarshine's son-in-law was running the sobriety checkpoint that CF went through (and passed, BTW) in her hometown. She also talks about him being out and about and apparently picky about the women he took home. Because he can totally afford to be, don't you know. ;)

And apparently, word is he's even better looking in person. Be still my heart! LOL. I'd do a link, but I'm crap at them. Her CF post is like the second one down at her lj though, if you want to check it out.
14th-Dec-2005 07:48 am (UTC) - Gulp.
Oh. My. God. Marie!!!

...better looking in person.

How in HELL can he BE better looking in person???

Yikes.

So that makes me all hot and bothered!

Love,

Bri

My, my!

I'm trying to imagine the man being better looking in person...

Well, that should prompt some nice dreams!

(I recall seeing Charlie Sheen in Vegas years back. Even totally sleased out and in a bad disguise, he was stunningly attractive. And I'm not even a fan!)

Colin is an equal-opportunity-lover. I admire that! He'll do women of all ages... (Go, Colin. Have I got a rehab for you here at my house. Come on over!)

(smile)

Wordy McWord. It sort of makes us mere mortals despair and want to fall on our knees before him in worship...or...something... ;)

In rehab is better than dead, I guess! It's all relative.

And he'll be back on those talk shows, and I bet he'll cuss himself out.
14th-Dec-2005 07:49 am (UTC) - Hey, FJ!
Well, it's going to give him one hell of a lot to talk about. Right?

Bri
14th-Dec-2005 08:00 am (UTC) - Damn.
And Jim's in no end of 'trouble' at our house for his take on this situation... ROFL. (Well, good excuse for a mock-fight and make-up sex, I guess. I'll let him role-play as Colin! LMAO.)

Yeah, I guess this was coming, but shit!

Makes me sick to think of it...

I wouldn't mind taking care of him at our house, though! (Per your suggestion to Jim's entry!) And Jim would slam him into diapers and love the HELL out of that. (Believe me, Jimmy is all over adults in diapers -- not just babies...)

Anyway, I hate the idea of him not doing a bunch of appearances and interviews. Damn.

I'm with you -- don't clean the guy up too much!!!

Love,

Bri (who is glad to read this POV, MM...)
14th-Dec-2005 08:48 am (UTC) - Re: Damn.
Don't let Jim's rant upset you too much, Brian. It sounds like he just needed an excuse to rant, period. His life is tough some days -- and there's additional stresses during the holidays...

We'll miss seeing Colin out pimping his movie, but I'm glad he's getting the help he needs. I'm just not a fan of the 12-step program, frankly. (I had an actual fight with my sister Sue about that recently, by the way! It wasn't pretty...)

But I suspect Jim wouldn't mind that fight and make-up sex! (smile)

(hugs)
14th-Dec-2005 08:53 am (UTC) - Ouch.
Well, maybe this will prompt another chapter of your "Colin Farrell's Adventures in Slash" ... huh? I'm all for that!

I'd like to rehab his hot body...

(grin)

14th-Dec-2005 05:45 pm (UTC)
No matter. I'm crazy over him.

I would love to see him in person.

So he does all ages of women? What a fair and intelligent man.
14th-Dec-2005 06:07 pm (UTC)
There was a rumor that he begged, for 3 hours, a 70 year old woman to go to bed with him. Dame sombody or other, and I'm sorry I can't call up the name right now. Some actress. The lady herself would not say who it was that did the begging, but her publicist confirmed that it was Colin Farrell. It never happened, and I never heard anything from the Farrell camp about it, but that was the scoop anyway.

So, that tell me he at least looks beyond the physical, if the mental or maybe spiritual intrigues him enough. Which is cool.

It was Dame Eileen Atkins who made 'Ask the Dust' with Colin last year. Actually I read a recent Colin article where he was asked about it. He and she had been to dinner together in South Africa where they were filming, and a woman came to his table and laid across it asking him for sex or some such thing. I guess he propositioned Atkins later.

Here's the excerpt from the article:
"She's an extremely attractive, extremely powerful woman with a wicked sense of humor," Farrell says, taking a sip of his breakfast. "To judge by age is extremely narrow-minded. I should call her, actually. She left me a lovely message when that broke."

I really 'fell for' Colin when I saw him openly flirting with a 40-something lottery winner on Jay Leno. He's been quoted as saying he likes women of all sizes and all ages, which makes him damn near perfect in my eyes. (Except for the drugs, cigarettes and insomnia, of course!)

I knew *somebody* would know what I was talking about. And yeah, that is absolutely cool of him. So many women are automatically dismissed as soon as they pass a certain age bracket or weight limit. If you're not under size 5, don't bother.

It sort of reminds me of a guy that I am really fond of, Henry Rollins. He said one time on one of his spoken word things that he is sort of disappointed by the women who come to the Rollins Band concerts. Because they totally get the hotties looking to score. He asked, paraphrasing, "where are the older women? The ones with a few lines, and a few gray hairs? The ones who've actually read a book and have something to say?"

I love, love, love Henry Rollins. Looks like a total thug, but is well-read and well-traveled, a very intelligent and interesting man.
