Colin Farrell’s Charm Is Wearing Thin

Betsy Waldman / October 28, 2008

Is Colin Farrell in some kind of scuzz-out contest with Mickey Rourke these days?

The Ask the Dust actor showed up in Rome for a photo-call to promote the upcoming Pride and Glory, displaying little of either with his emaciated frame, gnarly locks and beat-up boots that would make a hobo blush in shame.

Sure, he lost 40 pounds to play a photojournalist in the upcoming Bosnia war flick Triage, but if Farrell keeps going in this direction, displaced Bosnians are going to take up a collection to buy him a bar of soap and a razor.
