London, Jan 1 (IANS) Actor Colin Farrell admits he went into depression mode after his film "Alexander" didn't fare well at the box-office and also considered turning his back on acting career.
"That was tough. I say tough relative to a charmed life, but I'm not going to apologise for how much it affected me emotionally and psychologically. I was going to walk away from acting. I couldn't even buy a packet of cigarettes without feeling like I needed to say sorry to the guy behind the counter just in case he happened to see the thing," dailystar.co.uk quoted him as saying.
Farrell became even more withdrawn following the box office failure of "Miami Vice" in 2006.
"I just completely fell to s**t on that one. It was literally the first time I couldn't say to anyone around me, 'Have I been late for work, have I missed any days, have I been hitting my marks?' Because the answers would have been yes, yes, and no... I lost the ability to be confident that I could make a change myself."
