Colin Farrell's quotes

  • Being Irish is very much a part of who I am. I take it everywhere with me.
  • [on people who drink tequila] I tell them, "When you're at home puking your guts out, I'll be here drinking my Amstel Light.".
  • [on appearing nude in Tigerland (2000)] I couldn't care less about who sees my bits... My friends asked how I could do scenes like that and not get excited, but it wasn't like that. My bits looked the size of a cashew nut!
  • [on physical training for film roles] I find it the most tedious waste of life. It's so boring. I'd prefer to be sitting in a pub with a few strangers talkin' shit than looking at meself in the mirror runnin' on the treadmill.
  • I'm in no hurry to get anywhere. I don't have any plans. I don't have a map. If you did in this business, you would destroy yourself. Hardship tends to unify.
  • I'm just a true Irish boy at heart. I'm just myself, I stick by my guns and I treat people the way I think they should be treated, regardless of their status. And I just have a laugh.
  • Anything I am and anything I hope to be, I have my mom to thank.
  • Fame was something that seemed incredibly exotic. It represented the ultimate kind of status. But it eventually became one of those 'be careful what you wish for' things.
  • My Dublin wasn't the Dublin of sing-songs, traditional music, sense of history and place and community. It was kind of more nouveau-riche, competition with the neighbours, a bit more privileged than the Dublin of lore.
  • [on scathing reviews for his performance in Alexander (2004)] That was fairly defining. I seriously thought of walking away from it all.
  • When I went to the Oscars for the first time I was gobsmacked and I mean I've been three times. It's huge, it's ridiculous and it's pompous and equally it's exciting and awe-inspiring. It means nothing and it means loads.
  • [on Ireland] The depth of our cultural complexities, our music, literature, community and the pain that we share means that I could be away from there for 50 years and I wouldn't feel any less Irish.
  • Desperation will allow you to do incredible things in the name of survival.
  • We all try and strike a balance in life, but there is an ugly balance that says the better some people do the worse others do. That's a cruel balance. It's an imbalance.
  • I decided, after consulting with James' mother, that I wanted to talk publicly about the pride and joy I had in our son.
  • [on his son James]When James took his first steps a couple weeks short of his fourth birthday, it was pretty amazing and humbling to see
