Colin Farrell opened up about how he tried to leave his 15-minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival on Monday night’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on CBS.
The 46-year-old actor, who stars in Martin McDonagh’s new film The Banshees of Inisherin, with actor Brendan Gleeson, was quizzed by Stephen, 58, about what it was like to be at the receiving a long standing ovation.
– Tiring, answered Colin.

He added: “I tried to leave around the seventh minute, when my ego felt good enough that I had had enough,” Colin said. “I tried to leave and they said you can’t leave until everyone stops clapping.”
When the ovation continued, Colin said he was considering signing autographs.
“That’s when you start coming down and signing autographs and then I was told that broke the shitty rules as well,” Colin said.
Stephen asked Colin if he was friends in real life with his co-star Brendan, 67.

Simple answer: “Tiring,” replied Colin when asked what the long standing ovation was like
“Oh yeah, I love it to pieces,” Colin said. ‘He is my friend.’
Colin said he was worried about getting into the movie if Brendan wanted them to keep his distance from him on set because their characters disagreed. Colin said he was happy to hear that was not the case.
“He was all over me from day one,” Colin said. ‘Give us a hug.’

Colin then compared filming the critically acclaimed 2008 film In Bruges with Brendan to their new movie.
‘Bruges looked like a double, although of course there were other actors. So it wasn’t just about us. But it was about two guys falling in love in Brugge and it was about the dissolution of love,” Colin said. “It’s about our fracture and our death. It’s kind of overwhelming for my character.
Colin also described how stunning the scenery was for them filming in the Ayran Islands in Ireland.

“So beautiful,” said Colin. ‘The balls of Martin and the decorator to build this pub, which no longer exists, on this bluff. Twenty feet from the front door with the Atlantic, and constantly rolling cliffs and waves right outside the pub door. It was as if the ocean waves were representative of the people in the community. Much of this movie feels like deletion.
Colin said that not only did they have unprecedented beautiful weather while filming, but also the people were so welcoming.
“The first island we were there for six or seven weeks, the people of Inisherin, 750 people all year round, they just welcomed us daily into their lives,” Colin said.

Colin also opened up about his co-star Jenny the Donkey in the film and how close they were up to a point.
“It sort of fell apart about two-thirds into the movie,” Colin said. “My left knee can attest to that. She kicked me. His dog bit me. There’s a horse in the movie that tried to run me over the wagon in the fucking Atlantic Ocean.
The Banshees of Inisherin is set to hit theaters on October 21.
