Colin Farrell and Emma Forrest broke up

Farrell's Fender Bender
Colin Farrell and Emma Forrest have broken up! At least, according to British tabloid The Daily Mail and an alleged “confirmation” by now ex-girlfriend Emma to the American rag In Touch. So maybe, maybe not, but let’s celebrate for just a moment! Woohoo! Another cute Irishman is back on the market!

Farrell and Forrest had been dating for about a year, and had a seemingly low-key relationship. They had never walked a red carpet together, and her career (journalist) meant that she probably wasn’t down with a lot Hollywood industry stuff. The Daily Mail claims that Emma was very hurt that Colin didn’t thank her when he won the Golden Globe last month, but I don’t know. After getting cleaned up and sober, it seemed like a very nice, healthy relationship for Colin. I’m just so happy he’s back on the market. Woohoo! The Daily Mail has more:

Colin Farrell is single and free to hell-raise once more again after finishing his latest relationship. The Hollywood star, who picked up a Golden Globe last month, ended his romance to English writer Emma Forrest after a whole impressive year.

The couple had begun dating after they were introduced by Martin McDonaugh, who directed In Bruges, the film which earned the Irishman his gong.

But London-born Emma confirmed the split to American magazine InTouch. An insider told the publication that Emma felt slighted by her famous boyfriend when he failed to thank her during his Golden Globes speech last month.

A source said: ‘He would not introduce her to his family. She was also upset that he didn’t thank her at the Golden Globe Awards.’

Novelist and journalist Emma was credited with being a stabilising influence in the actor’s life. Reports last year at one point even claimed the couple were planning to start a family and Colin was planning to convert to Judaism, Emma’s religion.

During the early days of the couple’s romance, a friend of the actor said: ‘Colin is a changed man. Emma has been a steadying influence and they have hit it off big time. They have spent months trying to keep the relationship under wraps because they are falling madly in love.’

Farrell’s image of lothario came into serious question as he dated Irish university student Muireann McDonnell for two years before Emma. The Phone Booth actor was previously married to English actress Amelia Warner for four months and has a five-year-old son James from his brief romance to Canadian model Kim Bordenave.

From The Daily Mail

On the recommendation of several Celebitches, I recently rented In Bruges, and I just loved it. I really think it was the finest, most nuance-filled, hilarious, tragic, amazing performance of Colin career thus far. When Colin exclaims, “A bottle!” I exploded into a fit of giggles that didn’t end for five minutes. I really hope Colin gets the chance to do more films like In Bruges, and that he finds some glamorous beauty to help him through this time (either me or Freida Pinto will make me happy).

    Kaiser I’m glad you got to see In Bruges awesome movie, now his ex was very hurt that he didn’t thank her when he won the Golden Globe for a movie he made before they met? I have to say I’m glad they are not together anymore, yaaayy Colin Farrell is single again, he has great movies coming up can’t wait to them.

    I was one of the ones that raved about the movie. You will be drawn into the movie layer by delightful, broodingly tragic layer. It is just a treat to behold, and revel in, the full scope of acting, and it will be a hard act to follow (pun intended) for young Mr. Farrell, but can I just say again, well done sir, well done.

  9. Anna says:

    Love the Irish accent, love the Farrell. He’s back, woohoo!

  10. Bodhi says:

    In Bruges was hilarious!! I LOVE Colin! He is one of my freebies :)

  11. geronimo says:

    Aw. All the Colin love, and not one little smidgen for Brendan Gleeson, without whom In Bruges would not be the film it is. That film owes its rightful gem status to Gleeson as much as to Colin. Bit sad to see him not getting equal praise for it.

  12. Bodhi says:

    Ok, ok G, you are so right. :) Brendan was seriously amazing in the flick & Colin wouldn’t have his GG without him. The whole cast was incredible & I don’t think the film would have been nearly as awesome with a different one.

  13. xpolov says:

    Brendan Gleeson is an amazing actor but i guess the article was about Colin Farrell and his Golden Globe win as well as his recent break up with his ex- gf, thaks kaiser.

    I loved that movie, his best movie yet. I am also glad that he is single, but sad because I will never be given a chance. *sniffle* I can hold on to my dreams…

  16. geronimo says:

    @Bodhi & xpolov – see, that wasn’t hard, was it? Much better. :lol:

    I am a Colin fan. I love the guy. When I first heard he was going out with Emma, and I researched her, my gut feeling was ‘Colin, this chick is NOT good for you, ditch the b!tch!’. Can you imagine my relief when it turned out that the word on the street was that despite the photos, it seems that this relationship was all in Emma’s head. The ‘press releases’ that they were dating came from her!

  18. asma says:

    What are you all talking about? Colin and Emma dated for one year. She even stayed at a rented home with him in the fishing village when he was filming Ondine. He had her parents come too for a short stay. Emma stayed with him for two weeks. He even bought a pink bunny suit for the baby he wanted to conceive with Emma and call her Pearl. When Emma left back to LA, Colin arrived 2 weeks later. He would send her up to 50 text msg’s a day which even annoyed her family when they were visiting her. From the plane on his way to see her he told her they will soon be in each others arms. When he arrives he is shaking and pale, crying his eyes out on her lap telling her he needs space. She locks herself in the bathroom and yells at him to go. 6mths later she is sent a e-mail of Colin with his co-star from Ondine heavily pregnant. The guy is awful, a cheater and serial womaniser liar. Read her book.

    hes a dick, he will never be happy. one min he wants to raise a family with someone, the next he’s crying because he wants to split. he has mental issues and mommy issues. *psycho* think he needs therapy.

    i think anyone who doesnt know to steer clear by now deserves what they get.

    ps he’s a butterface aka ugly and he aint getting any younger and not ageing nicely either. in hollywood, you are nothin if you’re ugly, they dont hire him for his personality or intellectual prowess you know. what a loser. he could’ve had something good with that chick.

    she’s well shot of him, plus she too good looking for him anyway. too bad about the self-harm stuff, that’s just bad.
