Colin Farrell has reportedly voluntarily admitted himself to rehab as a precautionary measure, but has not relapsed, they say.
“He is not drinking again,” said a source to People. “He has worked on projects in a row and needed a break. He has been sober for 12 years and wanted to do this to make sure it stays that way. He is taking time for him. It was his idea.”
In 2005, Colin went to a rehab facility for exhaustion and dependency on prescription medication related to a back problem, said his publicist at the time.
He spoke of his addictions and problems with sobriety in an interview in 2008. He admitted that he had been drunk or high since the age of 14.
Farrell has shed his wild side and the bad guy image of Hollywood. He now has two sons, Henry, 9 years, with Alicja Bachleda-Curus, and James, 14, with Kim Bordenave.
Well, better to be safe than sorry. Ok, remember when he went out with Britney Spears? OMG! that was 15 years ago! HA! Blast from the past!
