Actress Nicole Kidman praised the Irish actor in writing, giving insight into the “bond” the pair hold.

“When Colin Farrell and I starred together in the 2017 films The Beguiled and The Killing of a Sacred Deer, I felt like I had found both my knight in shining armour and my partner in crime,” she wrote.

“He was very emotionally open with me, and I’m very protective of him. I admire his tenacity, his resilience, and his great sense of humour. He’s got such an Irish kind of sensibility.”

Continuing: “He’s not frightened of tone or genre, and he’s very present. Ego is not attached to his performances. You really see that in the longevity of his nearly 30-year-long career.”

Nicole went on toe explain how Colin is “an actor’s actor” and “not about building up his stardom or legacy.”

“It’s lovely to see someone who’s been so resilient and committed and pure finally being lauded for what he does. He also seems to look younger every year.”
