Collin Farrell was banned from his favorite bar for his ferocious antics

Now considered a down-to-earth and courteous man in Hollywood, Colin Farrell was once a wild kid with ferocious antics, which even earned him 25 years of ban from his favorite bar. The owner of the pub, Adrienne MacCarthy told Jam Press that The Banshees of Inisherin actor was outrageous in his early 20s and suffered his ferocious antics for 3 months before she decided to pull the plug. She said,

“He was new out of acting school, and he came down for three months. He had wild times and at 19 we’re all wild and we misbehave. But really after three months of it I just got a bit sick of it. He was outrageous, so I had enough and said, ‘That’s it, you’re out!’ 

Although Farrell was considered a nuisance for his demeanor in his youth, it soon saw a shift as the actor grew older and even reconnected with MacCarthy to fix their sour relationship.

MacCarthy revealed that in 2009, The Batman actor revisited her and he kind of forgot that he was barred from the bar. But after sharing some laughs, she decided to lift the ban and both became great pals instantly. She stated,

“Colin said he couldn’t quite remember being barred, but we laughed about it. We understand each other now. He’s just normal and down to earth. Nowadays, he’s more interested in pilates, yoga, and healthy living. We’re proud of him no matter what,”
