Colin Farrell’s Secret Friend

Colin Farrell’s had more than his share of craziness in his life, by his own admission much of it self-inflicted.

Colin Farrell’s had more than his share of craziness in
his life
, by his own admission much of it
self-inflicted. So one recent afternoon we were talking about just that – the infamous bad boy behavior, the crazy stuff – a perfect topic considering his most recent film role was playing one
of ‘Seven Psychopaths.’ 

“My craziness?” he laughs. “It’s different now. I mean, I just try to live my life. I get to do so
much shit, whether it’s through travel or the actual characters I’m playing or
whatever it may be, I get to invest myself in a lot of different extreme
scenarios and situations. And those random situations are where my
craziness comes from these days.

For example? 
“Like being asked to read a poem at Elizabeth Taylor’s funeral last
year. See, this is crazy shit. I met Elizabeth Taylor in Cedars-Sinai when
my second son Henry was being born.
I was
downstairs having a smoke and a couple of guys came up and said they were with
Elizabeth Taylor. And so I went ‘Oh, is she all right?’ And they said ‘Yes,
she’s fine, she’s just having a stint put in her heart.’ Like it’s no big deal,
fucking hell. And I said ‘Well, tell her I said hello. She probably wouldn’t
even know who I am.’ And they said ‘Oh, no, she knows who you are.’  And I
thought that was one of the more pleasing things I’d ever heard in 34, 35 years
of being alive. And that was the end of it.

So Henry was born, and 2 days later I was thinking about
Elizabeth. I called my publicist to ask her to send flowers, and she said,
‘That’s funny, there are some flowers here from Elizabeth Taylor with a
handwritten note for you.’ To which I said ‘Get the fuck out of here!’ So I
sent flowers and then about 2 weeks later she was on my mind so I called my
publicist again and asked, ‘Is there any chance I could go and pay my respects
and say hello to Elizabeth Taylor?’ So she made some calls, and on that
Saturday at 1:00 P M I arrived at her house in Bel-Air as I had been
instructed, having stopped off and picked up a couple of things that I felt
might be appropriate for such a visit. She kept me waiting in her garden for an
hour and then got wheeled out with her big hair and colorful make-up and her
little dog – and from there ensued the most bizarre and most unique
friendship that I’ve ever had,
for the
last year-and-a-half, two years of her life. Selfishly I wish I had got to know
her before that because I had grand designs about the things we were going to
do like helicopter trips to Santa Barbara and so on and so forth. But I got to
get to know her in my own version, in my own way. I don’t go to bed ‘til 4:00
a.m. and she was an erratic sleeper as well, so I used to call her at
3:00 in the morning and if she answered we’d talk til 3:30, whatever. I really
loved her so much.”
