Colin Farrell not as scary skinny as you might think


Colin Farrell drew alarm a couple weeks ago when a photo came out like of him looking extremely emaciated and like a shadow of the buff Irish actor with a heart we know and love.

He lost the weight, which looks like 20-30 pounds off an already-thin frame, for a role. Farrell plays a Spanish photojournalist in war-torn Bosnia in the early 1990s in the film Triage, based on a novel by Scott Anderson. His character is torn apart by guilt and regret for the difficult choices he’s forced to make in an effort to survive.

Farrell said in a press conference that he lost the weight because my role demanded it” and added “It was all very healthy.”

Either the earlier photos made Farrell look deceptively gaunt or he’s added some much-needed weight back, because these latest photos on set have Farrell looking too-thin but still healthy. It could be all the clothes he’s wearing but he’s not scary skinny looking to me here. I would still fail to check him out if he was walking down the street, unlike the buffer, more clean cut Colin of days past.

Thanks to WENN for these photos, taken today in Dublin.

    I know he’s probably (ok, definately) a perv, a man-whore, etc, but I love the guy. I hope this weight loss is just a temporary work thing.

  2. Alexis says:

    He still looks too thin, not good at all.

  3. Shane says:

    The role really does demand in. The Balkan wars were no joke. If you got caught up in, forget about eating, try surviving first.

  4. lanette says:

    he looks like he lost his damn mind…

  5. karla says:

    The Balkan wars were 2 in one 1912 and 1914,please don;t talk bs cause u just sound ignorant!Or you think Former Yugoslavia is the only country in the Balkan peninsula????! 8O :roll:

  6. shame says:

    I hope he hasn’t done any permanent damage to his self.

  7. anon says:

    he looks so hottttttttttttt i’m loving the long hair , he’s the sexiest man alive

  8. anon says:

    and it’s going to be a great movie indeed , i can’t wait to see it.

  9. Diva says:

    Hmmm, I still think he’s hot… in fact, I kinda think he’s hotter than his usual too-much-beer-face.

  10. krista says:

    I wish we would say this about more of the super skinny (and even just skinny) actresses out there. I know Celebitchy says it more than other sites but still–if he were a woman, I wonder if we’d be as critical…

  11. breederina says:

    After “In Bruges” love him forever. Though truth be told I was smitten before.

    to: lanette

    you sound so stupid and brainless, congratulations are in order for your accomplishments.

  13. Kat says:

    Is this what Woody will look like, after his 40 day island fast, only without the long hair???

  14. Bodhi says:

    I don’t care, hes still hot!

  15. Nan says:

    That old nosejob needs to get fixed. Wow, one of these guys. Known them over the years. This one is famous, but a loser, none the less…

  16. Nan says:

    Anon, save it about lanette. You are probably one of those loser commenters on Dlisted. Sure, great blog but it attracts loser commenters. Unlike here, where the commenters are all kinds of educated & astute, there is a mish-mosh of bipolar losers on meds. So please…Anon, go there. You will fit in perfectly with the regular losers

  17. Frenchie says:

    I think the nose is genuin, and fine. Talking about nose, I think that the boyfriend of scarlett was right going for surgery and telling it. Don’t know if he used the deviated septum joke. I think he didn’t.

    Love,

    Loozerz at Dlisted

  19. Clarisse says:

    Nan…
    I am educated & astute, so i was told this is the site i need to be on…but i’m also a medicated loser…WHAT TO DO????????????

    (o_0)

    Back to my peeps at D-listed.
    Ciao (that Italian for good-bye)

  20. Blanche says:

    What Nan is trying to say is that she is too slow on the uptake to keep up with the pace at Dlisted.
    :(

  21. Caline says:

    He is one sexy dude!!!!!!! I think he looks great either way.

  22. ImpertinentV says:

    Dlisted flies right over Nan’s little head, so she posts here.

    Au revoir!
    (French for goodbye) 8O

    IF WHAT YOU SAID IS TRUE , THEN WHAT ARE YOU LOONIE , UNEDUCATED , STUPID , IDIOT AND LOOSER DOING HERE.
    COLIN IS A BRILLIANT ACTOR, A HUMANITRIAN , A GREAT DAD, VERY NICE GUY AND THE MOST SEXIEST MAN ON THE PLANET, YOU Nan ARE A JEALOUS LOOSER.

    TRIAGE IS GOING TO BE ANOTHER GREAT MOVIE AS “IN BRUGE” WAS AND COLIN IS GOING TO GET AN ASCAR FOR IT, EAT YOUR HEART OUT YOU JEALOUS LOONIE.

  24. anon says:

    to : Nan

    and you obviously are one of the idiots and loosers who goes on the dlisted site, otherwise you won’t accuse somebody else of that, I feel so sorry for you, you’re a complete idiot.

  25. Nan says:

    Point taken. Or is it taking? Is it looser or loser? Just asking that you not attack other posters. That’s all. This site is great. It doesn’t attract shut-ins & people who stay at home all day without hobbies or a passion. Let’s not turn it into that. The clientele here is better than that. They are respectful and stable. Let’s keep it as such.Stop attacking other posters and join a gym or get another outlet for your rage.

  26. Nan says:

    Oh, and learn how to spell. Use the tools your computer gave you.

  27. anon says:

    to : Nan

    why don’t you take your own advice and Get Into a Hobby It’s Good for You.
    i feel so sorry for you, you’re one heck of looser, get a life idiot, stop being jealous of colin, instead enjoy his hotness and his extraordinary talent, a change would do you good.

  28. anon says:

    of course if you insult my idol, i’m going to insult you back & if you don’t like colin, don’t come to his thread & when you see his picture, don’t click on it just keep going.

  29. Br!on says:

    I think the other photos were of Carson Daly.

  30. fgh says:

    anon…you cannot spell. I’m not refering to bad typing. We all do that.

    LOSER has one “O”. Uno. When people write LOOSER it makes me want to bop their little heads with walnuts from afar.

    Clunk! Feel that?

    Stop being a meanie and love Xenu. HAHA!

  31. anon says:

    TO: fgh

    if you don’t want people to be mean to you then you need to stop being mean to others.

    if you don’t like colin, get out of his thread and when you see his picture don’t click on it, just keep going, you’re jealous because your idol is an old hag.

  32. Nan says:

    fgh, so right. Now will this uneducated ‘looser’ find another site or just get his GED already. Really, you cannot combat with poor grammar and spelling. Hey ‘looser’ read any good books recently? No, because you would be astute in the English language. Even Dlisters laugh at you. Now go to Perez.

  33. bella says:

    colin doesn’t look skinny at all, he’s so huggable, he has the most gorgeous face ever, he’s a hottie as always. it sounds like a beautiful movie.

  34. Jojo says:

    To KARLA: The conflict lasting from 1996-1999 in the Balkan Region (war between Serbian and Yugoslav security forces and the Kosovo Liberation Army), was OFFICIALLY called the BALKAN WAR by the Clinton Administration. Even my CAT could figure out that SHANE was referring to this particular conflict, and not the Balkan Wars of the early 1900′s!!!! You, my dear KARLA, are clearly the ignorant one, not SHANE!!!! Not was what SHANE said perfectly true, it was from the heart. So not only are you ignorant, KARLA, but insensitive, too. Quite a combination!!

  35. Jojo says:

    I’m missing the word “only” in the second to last sentence. Not only was what he said true …

  36. Nan says:

    This sad clown could never get in my pants!

  37. Timmy says:

    WOW. He’s even skinnier than Vanessa Hudgens O=
    That’s just, so wrong.
