Despite his frightening appearance, Colin Farrell told reporters this week that he is quite healthy. Colin lost a tremendous amount of weight for his role in “Triage,” but during the press conference for the film, Colin insisted the dramatic weight loss was “very healthy.”
“I lost weight because my role demanded it,” Farrell told reporters simply of his upcoming film, Triage. “It was all very healthy.”
The actor also referred to the Scott Anderson novel on which Triage is based, reading the sentences that inspired his dramatic weight loss: “He went to the bathroom to shave. Once his beard was gone he saw that his face had become drawn. He pressed at the hollows beneath his eyes, the pronounced nubs of his cheekbones.”
Farrell spent five weeks in Alicante, Spain, filming Triage, in which he plays a war reporter in Bosnia in the early 1990s.
Remember when Colin was totally hot? That seems like centuries ago.
