Washington, October 11 (ANI): Actor Colin Farrell, who has appeared in several high-profile Hollywood films including Miami Vice and Daredevil, has confessed that his alcoholic addiction almost killed him.

While on the Jonathan Ross show, the star admitted that he developed a taste of the devastating habit while he was in his early teens.

And confessed that he was desperate to quit before it consumed him.

I”d been drinking since I was 14, Contactmusic quoted him as telling the BBC host.

He said: I was pretty sick. At the beginning [of recovery] I found it really hard.

“For me there was no choice… it was tough but I was dying.

I was struggling not to have a complete meltdown… I was just gone.

“I”m glad I”m out of that cycle, I”m very lucky.” (ANI)
