According to Irish hunk and celebrity dad Colin Farrell, he says that these days he lives a healthy lifestyle so he can see his two sons grow up for as long as he can. The Total Recall actor recently opened up to Men’s Health Magazine where he talks about keeping fit, how he interacts with his children, and the reason why he quit boozing it up in Hollywood. Here’s a snippet:
He has been to rehab for addiction to drugs and in the early years of his careerwas well known for being a hell-raiser. But Colin Farrell has revealed that his wild days are over and he now enjoys a healthy lifestyle crediting his children as the reason for the dramatic change.
In an interview in the September issue of Men’s Health magazine the Irish star has revealed he has undergone a total body overhaul in order to ‘live as long as possible’ so he can see his sons James, nine, and Henry, two, grow up.
Colin explained: ‘What my first son James did was allow me to care for something in this world when I couldn’t care for myself. James saved my life.’
Farrell’s eldest son, who suffers from Angelman syndrome, was fathered with US model Kim Bordenave, while Henry’s mother is actress Alicja Bachleda-Curuś who Colin split from a year after the birth of their son.
And speaking about his healthy lifestyle compared to his old habits he explained: ‘I don’t put the same level of energy into healthy living as I did into unhealthy living. I put an enormous amount of energy into the destruction of my body and if I put the same amount into treating my body in a positive way, that too would end up being a sickness. But I eat really well, drink loads of green tea, and take a s***load of vitamins.’
