Colin Farrell in Details Magazine

Irish hottie Colin Farrell graces the cover of Details magazine’s November 2012 issue. Inside, Farrell opens up about sobriety and fatherhood.

The actor explains, “When I had James, I made a decision not to change. I literally said, ‘I’m not changing! I’m gonna be his friend!’ Like a f-cking 28-year-old drug-addicted drunk friend is exactly what my 6-week-old son needs.” He continued, “I’ve got eight hours a day now that I didn’t have before, when I was drinking every day for 18 years.”

What does it feel like to be sober? As Farrell puts it, “I’ve never seen a moon in the sky that, if it didn’t take my breath away, at least misplaced it for a moment. When I was living a different way, I was probably profoundly bored. I had moments of elation. Now I never get f-cking bored. I get excited about room service menus! I really do. Even though the french fries are soggy as f-ck and I still haven’t figured out an exact way to open up that Heinz mini jar — sometimes it’s my nails, sometimes it’s my teeth. I’m just grateful that I’m actually alive, to be honest.”

Focusing on his successful career and being a father to his two children, the actor admits he hasn’t been in a relationship for a while. “[It's been] two and a half years since I was with Henry’s mother. If I ever do get involved with somebody again, I will try as much as possible to shut my f-cking mouth and stay f-cking present. Love in action, man! Not love in f-cking words.”
