In an interview in The (Sydney, Australia) Daily Telegraph, actor Colin Farrell details his weekly drug use when he was 17:

Last year Farrell hinted about this other side in an interview with a British magazine in which he spoke about a visit to a psychologist as a 17-year-old.

"I ended up on a shrink's couch and he told me to write down how much I did in a week," Farrell said in the interview. "Twenty E's [Ecstasy pills], four grams of coke, six of speed, half an ounce of hash, three bottles of Jack Daniels, 12 bottles of red wine, 60 pints [of beer] and 280 [cigarettes]. He looked at me and said 'No wonder you're depressed'.

Unfortunately, the article never mentions whether Farrell has sworn off his dangerous ways. It's a shame the article ran as it did, because it does little to discourage fans from following Farrell's dangerous path.
