Colin Farrell: ”I Wrote a Break-up Letter to the Spirit of Tobacco”


Irish actor Colin Farrell, who appeared in the second season of ‘True Detective’ has explained how he broke up with tobacco and finally quit his cigarette habit. Colin says he first penned a letter to “the Spirit of Tobacco” and then lit it on fire with some tobacco and watched it burn:

”I wrote a break-up letter to the Spirit of Tobacco. I got a frying pan and tossed the letter with a load of tobacco, put some paraffin over it, and lit a match that sent a big, wallowing cloud up into the sky. Then I didn’t have a cigarette for another two years.”

Colin has two sons from two past relationships – 11-year-old James and 5-year-old Henry. Although he has been single for the past 5 years, he says he is ok with the loneliness and instead chooses to focus on his children and how they are developing on a daily basis:

”It’s not that I don’t get lonely sometimes, but I’m OK about it. The most significant aspect of my life lives far away from anywhere that a camera is needed. You play the part and do interviews but don’t overextend yourself or put on a mask or change your name. When you get home, the only thing that matters is your son is not eating his turkey sandwiches and he’s not into avocado anymore, so you have to find something new that he’ll eat for lunch.”
