Personal Quote:

[on Hollywood] I'm not seduced by it all. I swear to God. I'm easily pleased, yeah. Don't get me wrong, I'll indulge in it. I'll be in Los Angeles for two weeks and I'll have a laugh, get battered and have a buzz, but at the end of the day, I'll go home. It's just me earning a few more stories to tell everyone at home and all. See more »

Trivia:

When he and his In Bruges (2008) co-star Brendan Gleeson both got nominated for Golden Globes, he bet Brendan twenty dollars that he [Colin] would win if any of them won at all. Farrell indeed won the Golden Globe. See more »
