Colin Farrell: Ireland is bad for my health

I dont love running on the treadmill but I kind of like the feeling after

HOLLYWOOD hottie Colin Farrell has confessed his healthy Los Angeles lifestyle disappears as soon as he’s back in Dublin.

Health freak Farrell (36) admitted he reverts to eating “shite” at home.

“I’ll go home to Dublin and I’ll eat absolute shite,” he said.

“Kebabs, fish and chips, lashings of butter on bread ... Nonsense stuff that you should be eating once a month when you’re six years old if you’re lucky — not a fully grown man who’s bingeing.”

However, once he returns to his adopted home of LA, he gets back into his healthy regime.

“I mix it up. I live in extremes. I’ll do that then I’ll come back and clean my system out,” he said.

The former hell-raiser claims he’s learned to love going to the gym.

“I love the gym,” he said. “I do now. I don’t love running on the treadmill but I kind of like the feeling after. So it’s worth it. I like the ritual of going to the gym.”

He admitted he worked hard to get in shape for new movie, Total Recall.

The star said: “I got on the treadmill and I lifted weights and I sparred ... I knew it was going to be a long shoot.”
