Colin Farrell Was Compelled To Enter Rehab

By Devaki

Colin Farrell reveals that he was compelled to improve his ways when there came a propaganda that he was 'not reliable', on the sets of Miami Vice.

The 33 years old Irish actor says that he checked in to the rehab soon after the shoots of Michael Mann movie as he realized that his addictions are becoming a nuisance.

"I was always very functional, but that was the first film where there were a couple of days I missed because I was f**ked," says Farrell.

"My kind of romantic fecklessness had turned into something more debilitating personally and creatively, because the word was spreading that I wasn't reliable," he added.

He also says that his family was not at all surprised when he checked into rehab.

"I had issues way before I ever stepped into an acting class - my family were worried about me for years and years. The stuff I used to get up to, the way I used to drive and what I used to have in my system - I'm profoundly lucky that I got out unscathed and that I didn''t kill anyone," he said.
