Colin Farrell Tells Story About Manscaping His 'Retro Bush' Before Scene

Colin Farrell appeared with Ellen DeGeneres to celebrate his 10 years of being sober and turning 41 later this month.

Farrell said he loved "getting older" with the exception of "getting hair in strange places and losing hair in not-so-strange places a bit. It's kind of an inversion that's unfavorable."

During a round of the 'Celebrity Confession' game, the actor recalled a funny story about manscaping his "retro bush," as he described it before a scene.

"I was doing my first American film 'Tigerland', I think in the year 2000," he began. "There was a sex scene in it, and I was very nervous because I'd never done a sex scene. Now they're just a walk in the park... not really. They're always uncomfortable."

"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…?,'" he asked director Joel Schumacher. "Because, like most men, I had what you could refer to as 'retro bush.'"

So he got to work with a beard trimmer.

"I don't know if they ever used the beard trimmer after," he quipped. "I went into my trailer, I got a bin and I put it there. I was nervous and I trimmed the right side a little bit, and obviously I had to match it, so I trimmed the left."

"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."

But in the end, "I didn't get my full frontal after all."
