Irish acting star Colin Farrell has revealed that his mother feared for his life when he first made the move to Hollywood.
 
Farrell, who once enjoyed a rock-and-roll lifestyle, said his extreme partying habits broke his mother’s heart.
 
"I was killing myself. My mum was waiting for a call to say I was dead," Farrell told Esquire in an interview for the October cover edition.
 
"I'm a garden-variety drug addict. I'd take anything until it's all gone. So forget Hollywood, parties and fun and all that, at the end it was me on my own in a room with a kit of stuff every night."

The Castleknock man admitted he was such an appetite for sex that he would have "more one-night stands in a week than there are nights in a week".
 
"I think I probably annoyed a lot of people because I was having so much fun. Because I didn't even work -- I mean, I did but I didn't. It happened when I wasn't looking," he said. "How did all this come about? It was so fast, whatever converged to carve my trajectory through this town, it was ridiculous."
