Colin Farrell tells embarrassing ‘manscaping’ story on Ellen DeGeneres Show
Colin Farrell gave the audience more than they bargained for when he appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show this week and told a story about his first sex scene, and the trimming he did to make sure he looked his best.
The True Detective star was asked to tell an embarrassing story to raise money for charity, a regular feature on the show.
He explained that his first sex scene took place in 2000 in the movie Tigerland.
“There was a sex scene in it, and I was very nervous because I’d never done a sex scene.
“I went up to the director, Joel Schumacher, and I had a dressing gown on and nothing underneath. I was obviously so nervous that I lost my mind for a second because I opened my dress and I said, ‘Is it a bit…?’ Because, like most men, I had what you could refer to as ‘retro bush.’”
Farrell revealed he was advised to ‘tidy up’ a bit, and so he went and borrowed a beard trimmer from hair and make-up and went for a bit of privacy in his trailer.
He continued: “I went into my trailer, I got a bin and I put it [below his groin].
“I was nervous and I trimmed the right side a little bit, and obviously I had to match it, so I trimmed the left. But I overshot the mark by a little bit, so I had to get back in and approach the right again. “I overshot that, and at this stage, I was sweating. I went back in and reapproached the landing on the left, and then I looked down and I had a little landing strip — a lovely, lovely little landing strip.”
DeGeneres and the audience were all in hysterics, and she decided that Farrell’s squirming was enough to earn the maximum donation of $10,000 for his selected charity.
