Good news ladies! Colin Farrell is not quite as ready to let go his bad boy image as some reports have claimed in recent times.

Seems like Colin is still hankering after that 'lusty leprechaun' image he carried around like a pot o' gold in Hollywood for years.

Farrell told Reuters that reports of his demise as a lad about town are greatly exaggerated.

"Other people have said that's what I have been trying to do,"

"I have never been quoted as saying that,"

"You live your life and people try to categorize how you live your life, and that's the job of the media to a certain extent.

"I try not to concern myself with it too much."

Welcome back wild child Colin then perhaps?
