Actor is unrecognisable for his “most challenging” role yet


Colin Farrell was virtually unrecognisable during the shooting of his latest movie The Lobster in Kerry yesterday.

The 37-year-old heartthrob is now sporting a bit of a belly – we assume (and hope) is fake – for the role.

Colin is just one of the big names to star in the movie– directed by Oscar- nominated Yorgos Lanthimos – which also stars Rachel Weisz, Michael Smiley, Jessica Barden and Olivia Colman.

The movie is a Sci-Fi love story in which single people are arrested and transferred to a hotel.

Once they are there, they are forced to find a matching mate in 45 days or they will be transformed into an animal and released into the woods.

It is due to shoot over the next seven weeks on location in Ireland.

Speaking about the role, the Irish actor said, “It’s one of the most challenging and different roles I’ve ever taken on.

“Working in Kerry is amazing. Every morning when I wake up and open the curtains I’m completely taken aback by the view. And the crew are just fantastic.”
