“For a 23-year-old from Ireland it was a rite of passage. I got to tell the lads and had moments of great boasting. But it kind of came back to haunt me.” [Elle]

One thing Colin Farrell (who you may not know is a father of two) is admittedly not so good at is having sex while sober. He opens up to Elle about what it was like the first time he had to be intimate with someone after being clean for two and a half years:

“I made love to a woman about two and half years after I got clean, and it was one of the most terrifying moments of my life. It was in the afternoon. The windows and the curtains were open. It was lovely, and to be crass, it wasn’t f–king. She was very gentle. But it was terrifying. Because I was just used to drunkenness and dark rooms and clubs and toilets and wherever.”
