While In Bruges kicked off Sundance with its world premiere, it's still got the rest of the world to meet, including last night's NYC screening. Of course, Colin Farrell was out to show off his film (and his hot accent) though something about that fedora is so not working for me. That being said, he won me over entirely talking about his son last fall and again recently saying, "I really hope if he’s anything of me he’s whatever the best of me is." He also talked about taking a break in his career post-Miami Vice and what that's all meant to him. He said:
“I’m just trying to figure it out...I use work kind of selfishly to try and understand myself and the world around me and all that kind of stuff. I also use myself and the world around me to try and understand the work so it’s kind of mutually generous in that way. I had a chance after ‘Miami Vice’ to take a little time off and I took a little time off. There was no major orchestration and I’m being really genuine because I know it sounds like I’m just saying it for saying its sake, but I never really had a master plan. I’ve just been very lucky and have had a load of opportunities...I just took the time to try and figure out what it all means to me.”
See, he may look all rough and tumble, but Colin seems like a sweetheart deep down. I gotta say, this bad boy gone good thing is totally working for me, even if I am not always loving the look.
