Yeah, you read that correctly.
Our own Colin Farrell appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week and decided to use the opportunity to tell the show’s four million viewers about a curious incident involving his pubes.
In fairness, Farrell was being a good sport and taking part in a segment where stars tell embarrassing stories to raise money for charity.
His contribution? A manscaping tale that took place just before he performed his first sex scene in a movie.
While filming for Joel Schumacher’s Tigerland, Farrell became concerned that his down there hair was perhaps a little… overgrown for movie audiences.
“I was very nervous as I’d never done a sex scene,” Colin told Ellen. “I went up to the director, Joel Schumacher, and had a dressing gown on and nothing underneath.
“I was obviously so nervous I lost my mind for a second, and opened my dressing gown and said, ‘Is this a bit… is it a bit…’ – because I had, like most men, what you could refer to as a retro bush – and Joel the director kind of went, ‘Oh…’ So I said, ‘I’ll trim it!'”
His solution? Colin popped over to the hair and make-up trailer, nabbed himself a beard trimmer and got to work…
“I was nervous! I trimmed the right side a little bit, then obviously had to match it and trimmed the left, but overshot the mark a little bit. Had to get back in, approach the right again, overshot that,” he explained.
“At this stage I was sweating. Went back in and re approached the landing strip on the left, then I looked down and had a little landing strip. Lovely little landing strip.”
So did he get his money shot? Sadly not. “I didn’t get my full frontal after all!” Colin sobbed to a bemused Ellen.
Watch the hilarity go down here:
