In a recent interview with Irish Tatler man, Irish actor Colin Farrell opened up about his sobriety and the long road it took to get him there.
“I don’t take it for granted. I don’t undermine how difficult it was, my own journey to getting sober and stuff. I’ve had eight years now, so I feel so locked in and it feels like a really different time. And I don’t miss it … I’m lucky not to miss it. I know people that have a longer period of sobriety than I do and they miss it every single day … I’m very lucky not to miss it.”
The 37-year-old admitted that he would of saved a huge amount of money and heartbreak if he had of gotten sober before he did. The In Bruges star also talked about love, saying that he has fallen deeply in love before and when he did, couldn’t have imagined his life without the other person.
“I have fallen in love in my life and at times it felt so deeply that I couldn’t imagine my life without the other person and I couldn’t imagine that I ever existed 19 or 24 years before I met them”
Farrell has two movies coming out later in 2014, Solace and Miss Julie.
