“That place is deeper in me”: Colin Farrell says Ireland will always be home to him

Colin Farrell may have made a home for himself and his family over in the States, but to him, Ireland will always be home.

The actor spoke about how much he just adores his native land in a chat with Jamie Lee Curtis.

He was discussing his film The Banshees of Inisherin which at its heart is a very Irish film.

“Ireland is an incredibly friendly country,” Jamie Lee told him in Variety’s Actors on Actors.

Colin enthused: “It’s amazing.”

“I’ve lived here in Los Angeles for 16, 17 years now. I’m raising my two sons here. LA means more to me than I thought this city ever would.

“But when I go home, it makes sense to me in a way that no other place would have the business making sense to me. If I’m in Los Angeles and I say, ‘I’m going home,’ I drop it about two octaves. That place is deeper in me.”

VIP Magazine previously caught up with Colin Farrell earlier this year where he opened up about his relationship with his home county of Dublin.

Speaking about watching The Banshees of Inisherin in the city, he admitted: “I was in Dublin, these are my people.

“Dublin is the city where any bullying that happened to me or I may have partaken in, it’s all been experienced in Dublin. My childhood was in Dublin, all the deep lines of experience which were cut into my noggin were cut into my noggin here. It was very powerful.”
