Sex tape

In July 2005, Farrell filed a lawsuit suing his former girlfriend, Playboy model Kimberlyn Quinn, the Internet Commerce Group (ICG) and adult entertainment producer David Hans Schmidt over the unauthorized public distribution of a 14-minute sex tape that Farrell made with Quinn in 2003. The tape is believed to have been made at Quinn's apartment. Farrell claims he understood the tape as being "strictly private and confidential and will take legal court actions to anyone who tries to distribute it",[22] but it was leaked to Schmidt and ICG who tried to release it publicly.

Quinn claimed that she did not give the tape to anyone and was not sure if or how copies were taken from her. She originally said that she would work with Farrell to ensure that it remained private, but Farrell said Quinn was trying to release it along with Schmidt in order to damage his career and "make money out of it", which Quinn denies.[23][24]


In January 2006, the tape surfaced on website named dirtycolin.com. The site was shut down on the same day because of server overload, but re-opened a week later. The tape was then pirated through BitTorrent and other file sharing systems. Both Farrell's and Quinn lawyers denounced the site, which was shut down again a few days later for unknown reasons. Farrell's legal team said it would take legal action against sites that hosted the tape. A trial date for the Quinn lawsuit was set for July 17, 2006, but the judge allowed Farrell and Quinn to mediate until April 20. On April 16, the two reached a settlement with confidential terms.

Dessarae Bradford's accusations

Farrell has been sued twice for alleged harassment and sending foul messages to telephone sex worker Dessarae Bradford. The lawsuits were later dismissed due to a lack of evidence provided by Bradford.[26][27] Bradford, who has announced that she is "waging war on Colin Farrell",[28] has recorded a song entitled "Colin Farrell is My Bitch" and has self-published a book called Colin Farrell: A Dark Twisted Puppy. [29] Bradford had previously recorded a song and written a book in which she claimed to have engaged in pegging with actor Alec Baldwin.[30][31] For other uses, see Pegging (disambiguation). ...

On July 20, 2006, as Farrell was being interviewed by Jay Leno on the set of The Tonight Show, Bradford evaded security, walked on stage as cameras were rolling, confronted Farrell, and threw her book on Jay's desk. In front of a silent, stunned audience, Farrell escorted her off the stage himself, told the camera crew to stop filming, and handed her over to security. As Bradford was led out of the studio, she shouted "I'll see you in court." Farrell's response was a smooth, "Darling, you're insane!" Outside the studio, NBC security handed her off to Burbank police, who eventually released her. After Farrell apologized to the audience, describing Bradford as "my first stalker", the show then continued filming and the incident was edited out of the broadcast aired that night.[27] Farrell later requested a restraining order in court against Bradford. Farrell said Bradford "accosted me during the taping of a network television show on July 20, 2006. I am concerned that her harassing behaviour has escalated and may pose an immediate threat to my well-being and the well-being of my family."

Colin Farrell Biography (4664 words)
Colin was the 41st and last actor to be seen and, as he was late, Schumacher was preparing to leave as he turned up.
Farrell was Lieutenant Thomas Hart, a former law student brought in to defend the man and facing bribery, corruption and overt racism in the US forces, all the while being hampered by the fact that he can't use important information as it would jeopardise Willis's plan to break out and destroy a German munitions dump.
Farrell was excellent in the part as a slick New York publicist who answers a ringing pay-phone and is told if he hangs up he'll be shot, a red laser spot attesting to the gravity of the threat.
