Colin Farrell “made a decision” not to change his lifestyle when he became a father – even though he was a “drug-addicted drunk”.

The Irish actor is known for his hard-partying ways and spent time in rehab in 2005 where he was treated for prescription and recreational drug addiction. In 2003 he became a dad when model Kim Bordenave gave birth to his son James and now he’s sober Colin struggles to comprehend how he coped with parenthood.
