Colin Farrell admits taking criticism personally
London: Irish actor Colin Farrell says he doesn`t like it when people criticise his work in a film and end up taking some of the comments personally.
The 36-year-old admits of reading as many as possible reviews of his performance in Oliver Stone`s biopic ‘Alexander’, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
He said: “I got some pretty special reviews. Unfortunately, I went to all four corners of the world to find every word I could that was written about it. I read it all. It was pretty tough.”
"I say tough from a very sensitive, emotional place. It ain`t tough in the grand scheme of things, but when you put yourself out there and you`re really criticised and kinda called s**t, it`s not nice. So sure, you do take it personally,” he added.
The “S.W.A.T.” actor is deeply passionate about his work.
"I work as hard as I can... and I feel my way through it a lot, and it means something to me. Even `Total Recall` - a big summer movie, cost a f**king fortune. Even that. I couldn`t have worked on that if I couldn`t personalise it. Genuinely.”
