    Thanks for posting that Perez, I heard about it on the news this morning. It's nice to see celebrities actually doing something so wonderful in our neck of the woods.

    Dear Colin;

    Thanks for the free stuff and the cash!! The Toronto papers all say it's "my ticket off the streets" - too bad I've already blown it all on booze and drugs. This is Canada buddy, bums are treated like royalty and would never, ever starve to death - those suckers with jobs paying all those taxes make sure of that!!

    Anyway, thanks again even though everybody tells me it was a cheap publicity stunt done in an effort to resurrect your marginal career.

    sincerely,

    crackhead #5

    Hard to believe that on top of all that gorgeousness that is Colin Farrell, he's got a heart of gold as well. (sigh)

    OMG! That is so great of Colin to do that for Stress. Colin is not only super hot but, he is really a great guy! Very rare now a days in hollyweird! Lets hope that great fortune that has just been set on Stress will help him change his ways and get out of the gutter

    kudos to colin for giving someone a chance to get off the street. a paid year's stay in a room, plus sensible stuff like a sleeping bag and waterproof jacket….wish we heard more stories like this one.

    OMFG, the things i'd do to Colin Farrel would probably get me arrested in all 50 states. I'm just sayin'!

    218

    Some people will write the worst things about this act, whether it be about Colin or the homeless guy that Colin helped out. What is wrong with you people? What good deed have you done today? Colin Farrel did something truly awesome….he helped out a fellow human being and probably gave that guy hope…something that humanity is losing judging by all of these negative comments being left on here by people who have probably lost all hope because they can't get out of their parents basement so they hold the world in contempt through parents internet accounts. Geez…can't a guy just be a nice guy nowadays???

    Colin is an amazing guy, he saw this homeless man last year and he came back to Toronto for the film festival and he saw him again so this time he bought him brand new clothes, he went to his bank account to take some money out for him and he also rented out a room for the guy with sleeping gear and all for a whole year.

    Can he be any more amazing?

    226

    Nice story. Didn't know Colin was so cool. And I'm glad his camp wasn't the one who leaked it so you know his intentions were real. Not like some of those other publicity whores that won't do ANYTHING nice unless there is cameras flashing, like Kathy Griffin!

    I met the homeless guy right after Colin helped him out - at first I was a bit hesitant because I dunno….but then I decided you know what if he says its true then it must be! I was in awe of the wad of cash he pulled out of his pocket and there was also the new roller suitcase filled with clothes including a warm jacket and a sleeping bag/comforter that was bought for him….Colin Farrell was pretty nice to do this

    Re: jojo – YOU are the Twit you knowledgeless idiot. I have worked with the homeless and know a lot about it. In fact, I am working with a homeless FAMILY right now. There are many ways to get a homeless person gainful employment… there is absolutely NO EXCUSE for being homeless for YEARS. This is usually a result of bad choices and lack of motivation.

    When you have a clue, write me back U Know it all

    Nice job Colin!! Very smart to not just hand him some cash, but to get something useful like clothes, shelter plus cash (useful for toiletries, food, etc.)

    It's pretty much cut and dry like 98% of the comments here. He did something nice, simple. He's not the first and won't be the last to help someone out. But it's nice to hear a feel good story. This one thing can do nothing for his career for those who think he did it for publicity. He is involved in charity but you just don'thear about it. Check his fansite and you may see a little bit there.
    If you ever hear what his coworkers say, Colin really is down to earth and an all around cool guy. Who gives a flying f*ck if he likes women?! So do a zillion other male celebs! The mags just liked reporting about him a lot, but there were a lot of other celebs doing the same stuff he does, which is enjoy life. Despite his prior drinking, I have yet to hear a story about him crashing cars and barfighting. So, he really wasn't that bad, pretty normal in my book for a young man.
    P.S.
    He has a *steady* girlfriend these days who's pic Perez had up not long ago (he was touching her belly and many assumed she's preggers but Colin's rep said she's not).
    P.S.S.
    He is still hot. We all take some so so pics.

    "…there is absolutely NO EXCUSE for being homeless for YEARS. This is usually a result of bad choices and lack of motivation. "

    THAT is the most uneducated, moronic statment I have read so far. I don't care who you claim to be working with, you have no understanding of the reality if you are spouting this crap. "Bad choices" and "lack of motivation"??? Uhmmmm..no, try again. It is much more complicated. Mental health problems and addictions play a big part in long term homelessness….in other words SOCIETY is not providing enough services and resources to help. And then there are the WORKING poor, who are homeless while actually holding down jobs… etc.. etc…. You need to get a clue before you continue talking about things you don't know about.

    AND

    I am a huge fan of CF now. I always thought he was cute, but what he did is 100% class.

    The only homeless people in Canada are the ones who want to be homeless or are too crazy to keep a home.

    I bet ya Stress is back on the street this very moment begging and he'll be booted out of his new place by the end of the week.

    I always though this style was grunge. LOL! I recently heard he actually smells good (of course this would be when he doesn't have a cig and/or drink in his hand).

    You know? I agree with the poster that said, "I wish I had millions. I would do the same thing." I've always been the type of person who hands over a ten to the homeless person. Or who stops and gives the collectors on the intersections a five. My husband would say, "Why do you do that? They are only going to blow it on booze and cigarettes." My reply? As long as I know I'm giving it to them for the right reasons, that's all that matters. That's all that matters. I have no idea what it's like to be homeless. That's a blessing and a privilege. So, yes, if I had millions, you can bet your ass, I would be making someone happy at least once a month. Because I couldn't imagine that being my mother, father, sister, brother, children. And it happens people, whether you want to admit it or not. God forbid it should ever be someone you love, and they were begging on the streets and sleeping in boxes. There's a book out there everyone needs to read, it was disturbing to me, but it also opened my eyes to plenty. The Glass Castle, by Jeanette Walls. Expand your horizons.

    OMG Coco…you hit the nail on the head and made a very educated statement! Brava! Anyone see the Pursuit of Happiness?? Not all of it is in your control. Colin, you have always been gorgeous to me, this is just one of your many attributes and a considerably attractive one at that!

  51. LOLOLOLOL says – reply to this


    251

    WOW, WHAT A STUPID FUCKING IDIOT COLIN FARRELL IS!

    WHAT GOOD DOES IT DO THE BUM TO BE GIVEN ALL OF THIS BULLSHIT? PEOPLE DON'T RESPECT THINGS THEY DON'T EARN AND SURELY THIS GUY WILL FUCK IT ALL UP. BEING POOR IS A CHOICE, NOT AN AFFLICTION OF CIRCUMSTANCE.

    COLIN FARRELL IS A FUCKING DOUCHEBAG AND ALL HE DID WAS SET THIS GUY BACK FURTHER. SHOULD HAVE HIRED THE MAN AND PAID HIM AN HONEST WAGE/SALARY INSTEAD, AT LEAST THEN HE'D BE EARNING HIS FUCKING KEEP!

    Incredible story!! What a feeling it must be to give someone the opportunity to turn their life around! Too bad all people with TOO MUCH money didn't make the same effort!

  55. Lora says – reply to this


    255

    I think it's a very admirable thing that Colin did for that man. It's nice to know that he's trying to turn his life around and that he's got a very kind spirit. Cheers Colin!

  56. ASHLEY says – reply to this


    256

    IT'S NICE TO SEE SOMEONE WITH MONEY DOING SOMETHING NICE FOR SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T CHEERS TO COLIN THAT'S A NICE GESTURE!

  57. You're a bunch of a$$holes says – reply to this


    257

    To the mean a$$holes out there, not all homeless CAN hold down a job. There are so many people with psychiatric problems like schizophrenia on the streets, because most mental hospitals were closed during the 70s. Are YOU going to hire people with schizophrenia? Ever heard of anyone who does? Didn't think so.

    Just be glad you weren't destined to have this fate. That could be your ass freezing on the streets.

    BTW, this is the sweetest thing I've heard in while. Then you dumb asses had to ruin it with your nearsightedness.

    Re: Annoyed Torontonian
    What Money??
    I think as the story went he bought the guy a bunch of gear and paid his rent for year. FUCK OFF sanctimonious douchebag..
    Support shelters for sure, But a shelter should never be anyones home.

    The different betwn throwing someone a loonie towards their next piece of crack and giving someone without a safe space a home is HUGE..

    But Im sure its all the same to one who likely views homelessness as an annoying problem to step around in judgement on the way from car to work…

    Its ok by me though Im sure your as miserable as you sound..

    good for colin! and it wasn't even the money that was the biggest deal it was the clothes and apartment to start a new life. now he can go get a job because he can buy nice clothes for an interview and have a mailing address. celebrities have so much and others have so little it's nice to see them spreading the wealth. even if they do spend it on booze, that homeless man needs the money more than lilndsay lohan does.

    284

    That rocks. If youve got more money than you can spend in a lifetime why not spread it around. Whether that guy blows it on drugs and booze or makes it out is irrelevant. I wish more of the haves got that shit.
    Life is a lottery in every way, and anyone who thinks that they're not on the street because of their work ethic, morals or impeachable self control is setting themself up for either an ironic death or miserable next life..

    If all the rich people in the world used their money and put it to good use instead of buying expensive cars and jewelry, high fashion designer clothing (which by the way is ugly), and mansions they don't even live in, there would literally be no more POVERTY in the world. But most rich people and celebrities are greedy and selfish, so they better enjoy their short-lived time on earth while they can because most of them are all going to hell anyways.

    Re: COCO - I was actually going to reply to that one comment myself but you couldn't of said it better yourself!!! That really bothered me what that person said… I mean how does anyone know what a person is going through in that person's life to even say why they are homeless in the first place. And you couldn't have been more right about a person suffering from a disability or mental illness as a cause for homelessness. Some people on here obviously don't understand not everyone has the capabilities of working a normal job due to disabilities such as mental illness. I live in Las Vegas, NV and mental illness is the #1 cause of why people are homeless in this city. And what kind people on here would even say not to help a homeless person or someone in need!!! I would HATE to see what kind of world this would be if most people had that frame of thinking.

    when did colin ferrel get so FUG? he used to be hott! anyone remember S.W.A.T? now he's fat and grimey.
    Im not gonna hate on him for donating tothe poor because its always a good thing, but i do believe money would be better spent donating to a homeless foundation, as the money is distributed evenly and it insures that the money is spent only on necessary items and not drugs or alcohol. but as i said i cant complain because its not my money but wtvs

    The writer of that story is retarded. That was a poorly written story. Shame on him. Who can comprehend what that idiot wrote? The ppl who wrote comments here seemed confused with what the hell the story was about.

    298

    This is amazing…….Celebs have so much money……some are so wealthy that they'll never spend what they make in their life time……..unless they are completely STUPID and blow it on SOLID GOLD TOILETS or something equally as ridiculous!!! If your not GONNA SPEND IT GIVE IT TO SOMEONE WHO CAN USE IT……..and it doesn't have to be the homeless although they will appreciate it but other people as well…….such as charities and things of that nature!!! CHEERS TO COLIN FOR NOT ONLY MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE BUT A HOTTER PLACE AS WELL!!!!
