Colin Farrell earned his Hollywood hunk status at the Cannes Film Festival.
The Irish actor (38) walked the red carpet for the premiere of The Lobster at the prestigious film festival, wearing a Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo, alongside his co-star Rachel Weisz.
The Irish-shot film focusing on a dystopian future where citizens are legally required to be in a relationship or take a vow of celibacy/turn into an animal/be hunted by other humans in the woods, is receiving rave reviews.
His role in The Lobster, which was shot in Co Kerry, marks his second much talked about performance this week, enjoying a major career resurgence thanks to his role in the second series of True Detective.
Farrell recently revealed his biggest vice is an unlikely one for Hollywood's reformed bad boy - a cuddle.
It's tragic, I'm actually addicted to massages," he said.
"A lot of that is to do with touch because I love being touched - I'm a big hugger.
"I love a good hug and a two-handed handshake that nearly turns into a handhold," he joked.
