Colin Farrell admits he was so hungover on Minority Report set it took 56 takes to nail one line

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, he said: "There were a couple of hairy days. I asked them with a great array of arrogance that they not work me the day after my birthday. I said, 'Please don't have me working on June 1st, ­because my birthday is May 31st.' I thought a 100 million ­dollar film would at least listen to that ­request ... but I worked. It was a rough night and I didn't get any sleep.

"The line was, 'I'm sure you've all grasped the fundamental paradoxical pre-crime methodology.' I only know it now, still, 16 years later because it caused so much panic and anxiety. It should be on my tombstone. My sister was on the set that day and she had to leave the set after 56 takes. I was a disaster."


Have you ever gone to work hungover, ONTD?
