Colin Farrell Treated For Dependency On Meds

Okay, if I haven't mentioned it before, I'll mention it now...

I'm a huge Colin Farrell fan. As a matter of fact, Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I have a Colin Farrell list (slash list, to be specific) at Yahoo!.

Marilyn's had a 'feeling' about this for some time now, so it really didn't come as a surprise. But we both found it upsetting, even so. (Took us back to when they announced A.J. of the Backstreet Boys was in rehab.)

Colin Farrell Treated For Dependency On Meds

Actor cites exhaustion and prescription he took for back injury

Irish actor Colin Farrell is set to star in Terrence Malick's "The New World."

(Updated: 5:51 p.m. ET Dec. 12, 2005)

LOS ANGELES - Colin Farrell is being treated for exhaustion and dependency on prescription medication, his publicist said.

The medication was prescribed to the Irish actor after a back injury, publicist Danica Smith said in a written statement Monday.

The statement said Farrell had checked himself into a treatment center, which wasn’t identified.

"No other comments (are) to be made at this time," the statement said.

Farrell, 29, stars in the upcoming adventure-drama "The New World." His screen credits also include roles in last year’s "Alexander" and the 2002 thriller "Phone Booth."

I hope the next report is a happy one...
