Personal Quote:

I used to think that you could get to a level of success where the laws of the universe didn't apply. But they do. It's still life on life's terms, not on movie-star terms. I still have to work at relationships. I still have to work on my weight and some of my other demons. See more »

Trivia:

Farley only starred in 4 movies throughout his career: "Tommy Boy" (1995), "Black Sheep" (1996), "Beverly Hills Ninja" (1997), and "Almost Heroes" (1998). His other film appearances were merely supporting roles. See more »
