I’d never read anything like it and just found it so beautiful.

I didn’t think anyone else could have played this role. It needed an actor that you believed physically would be able to build something of the magnitude of the ark.

He was someone who could be both a warrior and also have a sort of complicated internal walls. He just felt very believable to me, he pulled off something that would be very difficult.

I wore the same fucking pair of boots for 10 years. From Cape Town to Tibet to L.A. to Dublin without laces. The same fucking grubber boots that I bought for fucking 20 pounds in a market in London. Initially I wore them because I didn’t want to care about how I looked, and then they became my identity. They became my character. And then I wouldn’t wear anything else—the idea of it put the fear of God in me.

As young as he is, he’s an extraordinary leading man. He’s a throwback to a time when leading men were men. Now it’s a parade of boys.

I’ve joked about it in interviews, but it’s true, no joke. The first time I fell in love was with Marilyn Monroe.

"I left Smarties for her under my pillow."

Why would she look under your pillow to find candies?

"Because fucking love conquers all! Including the limitations brought about by death 50 years in advance and time—all that quotidian bollocks. With full seriousness and absolute awareness of what my intent was—and a deep, deep abiding hope each night—I left Smarties under my pillow … "

Farrell’s not joking.

"On my life: It’s not some cute story. I had better things to do with my time even when I was a fuck-up than to create stories like this! It was that Christmas when I didn’t just see but felt, experienced, and lived through Some Like It Hot. And there was a strength in that 7- or 8-year-old’s feelings for Marilyn that was in every promise and every vow that I’ve made to every woman subsequently."

Those eyebrows pretty much live in their own ZIP code. He’s got a good sense of humor about those things.

He had a T-shirt on, a motorcycle jacket, I’m not sure if he’d had a couple beverages by this point,

He walked in the room and it was the same feeling I had when Julia Roberts came to my house when she was 20. It’s almost a little like falling in love—I can’t explain it.

There’s a form of expat guilt. I feared people at home would think I’d changed. So my Irish accent got stronger in America. This was me coming in and going, ‘I don’t give a fuck!’ But, of course, not caring is a form of caring.

He’s a different guy now. Older and wiser. More focused and accessible. One of the most generous—I’m kind of in love with him. I have a man crush on Colin for sure.
