Actor Colin Farrell has revealed he has become obsessed with the gym ever since he gave up his hard-partying lifestyle.
"I actually like the gym. I find peace in it. I never thought that would be me. I see these quotes, 'Working out for me is lifting a Carlsberg.' It was true at the time. Things have changed," contactmusic.com quoted the 35-year-old as saying.
Farell added that his two sons James, seven, and 22-month-old Henry, have given him a clearer focus in his life.
"I'm pretty clear on why I go to work now. I understand and have a respect for being away that I didn't have for the first five, six, seven years. With two boys as well, I have a respect for missing people that are in my life, a respect for being away from my kids," he said.
"I went for seven years working back to back to back to back. That became my life. That's not the way it is now. I have more balance in regards to choosing things," he added.
