Happy Hump Day!

In honor of the weekly Hump Day...I am going to share with you one of my all time favorite sexy men. I have had a crush on this guy for years and years. He has dark hair, dark favorite combo. He has a reputation of being a "bad boy," which he has truly earned. He has tattoos, smokes like a chimney, drinks like a fish, and cusses like a sailor...with an accent! WHEW...he is soooo damned hot. He is an actor that takes risks to do whatever roles that appeal to him, and he doesn't give a shit what people say about him.

He also has his sweet and innocent side as well, especially when it come to his baby boy. He is depicted as a wonderful father despite all the other bad press. Since his son's birth he has settled down a bit. He is a great actor as well as smoking hot and I think I will love him forever. I have added a few of my favorite quotes form him towards the really let's you see a bit of his personality. Enjoy!

Here he is....Colin Farrell!

Colin Fun-Facts:

Dropped out of the Gaiety Drama School in Dublin and a few months later auditioned for a part in "Ballykissangel" (1996) and was successful.

The youngest of the four children, he has one brother and two sisters

Ranked #98 in Premiere's 2003 annual Power 100 List. It is his first appearance on the list.

Named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in 2003.

His mother, Rita, forced him to take dancing lessons once his brother, Emmon Farrell Jr., started them.

Voted 6th in 'The World's Sexiest Man of 2003' in Company magazine.

His girlfriend, model Kim Bordenave, gave birth to a 7lb. 9oz. baby boy called James Padraig. He was born on Friday September 12th, 2003 in a Los Angeles hospital.

He has suffered from chronic insomnia since he was 12 years old.

One of his favorite books is "When Nietzsche wept" by Irvin D. Yalom.

On his left ring finger, above the knuckle he has the name "Millie" tattooed. "Millie" was a nickname for his first wife,
Amelia Warner.

He has two tattoos on his left forearm. The first one is the words "Carpe Diem" (Latin for "Seize the day"). Beside this tattoo there is a second tattoo, which is a black cross.

Auditioned to become a member of the Irish boyband, "Boyzone", but was turned down.

His idol Al Pacino called him "the best actor of his generation."

Weighed 1 lb. 6 oz. at birth.

Was a line dancing instructor in a nightclub in Limerick called Docs

His son James has Angelman Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder.

As well as working with charity, and speaking at the Special Olympics World Games in 2007, he has donated his salary for The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009) to Heath Ledger's little daughter (who was left nothing in a will that had not been updated in time). Ledger had originally been cast in the film and was replaced by Farrell, Johnny Depp, and Jude Law.

Quoting Colin Farrell:

I'm just a true Irish boy at heart. I'm just myself, I stick by my guns and I treat people the way I think they should be treated, regardless of their status. And I just have a laugh.

(On the girl that will interest him) "The usual obvious bullshit. Sense of humour, a bit of danger, good fun. A good heart is a really sexy thing. All women have the potential to be sexy and it's nothing to do with the dress someone wears or the make-up they put on their face, it's the aged-old cliché saying: 'What comes from inside'. God, I've met gorgeous women who I'd fancy and give one to, but at the end of the day they're not particularly sexy because they haven't got much going inside and they are too concerned with themselves. And then I've met women who wouldn't be as nearly as attractive and, because of the sense of fun they have and their joi de vivre, as they say, they'd be much sexier and you'd fall for them in a nanosecond."

I think I was 8 or 9 when I had a f*cking mad thing for Marilyn Monroe. I used to leave Smarties, the Irish equivalent of M&M's, under my pillow with a little note saying, 'I know you're dead, but these are very f*cking tasty, and you should come have a few. I won't tell anyone.'

"I couldn't care less about who sees my bits ... My friends asked how I could do scenes like that and not get excited, but it wasn't like that. My bits looked the size of a cashew nut!" (on appearing nude in Tigerland (2000)).
