Washington: Colin Farrell, who has had trouble with drug and drink addiction in the past, has revealed that he is a reformed person now who loves to exercise.

The 36-year-old actor said he loves to do yoga - something which he admits even surprises him.

"It`s helped to stay away from the cocaine and the whiskey. Life moves in cycles. I`m not going to say there was a particular day or time when things changed, or even that I`m a different man," Contactmusic quoted him as telling Observer magazine.

"I enjoy the work more. I enjoy being a dad more. I enjoy doing things I never thought I’d enjoy, like yoga!"

"Everything’s by design, even if you think it’s not. I can’t say I sat down and said, ``Right, I am going to reinvest". I know from talking to some friends and different people that it looks as though I’ve tried to redesign my career but it’s not really like that,” he added.
