After the failure of Colin Farrell’s movies Alexander in 2004 and Miami Vice in 2006 he fell into a depression. Not only were the movies total flops but his performance in the movies was criticized. Colin felt so bad about the negative reviews he felt he had to apologize to people – he actually considered giving up acting. This led him to fall into a depression. Colin checked himself into rehab to get himself back on track.
He recalls, “That was tough. I say tough relative to a charmed life, but I’m not going to apologize for how much it affected me emotionally and psychologically. I was going to walk away from acting. I couldn’t even buy a packet of cigarettes without feeling like I needed to say sorry to the guy behind the counter just in case he happened to see the thing.”
