From CNN Entertainment reporter Brooke Anderson:
Yes, Colin Farrell is an Irishman. Yes, he's "dangerous," sexy ... a rebel. But I have interviewed Colin before where he kept his language in check. Not this time. He let himself get a little too comfortable as we were talking live on CNN about his new film "In Bruges."
Farrell was explaining why director Martin McDonagh allowed him to keep his Irish accent while starring as a hit man based in London. He said that McDonagh probably saw his recent film "Cassandra's Dream" and thought "F**k that, he's Irish!"
Then, realizing his slip, he exclaimed, "Oh s**t!"
I was immediately flustered and mortified, as was he. His co-star Brendan Gleeson began laughing hysterically. In the end, we all joked about it, brushed it off, and eventually moved on with the interview.
Colin was very sweet and apologetic afterward. He told me that if the FCC decides to come after me to let him know and he'll have a chat with them.
Good thing the FCC doesn't regulate language on cable.
