Colin Farrell and Hugh Grant Like That They're Not as Famous as They Used to Be

Colin Farrell and Hugh Grant bonded over the fact that, as they’ve gotten older, they’ve been more left alone. The two discussed their privacy during Season 5 of Variety and PBS’ “Actors on Actors.”

“It all went mad so fast for me. I had a period of maybe five or six years of incredible fame and recognizability,” Farrell told Grant.”I’m glad that period of madness is over for me and my life.”

He added, “Social media I don’t have, and I feel very outside of it.”

Grant replied, “I’m in the same kind of boat. I’m more left alone which I was, which is absolutely delightful.”

The interview will air in its entirety on Variety’s “Actors on Actors” Season 5, presented by The Venetian Las Vegas, which debuts on PBS SoCal on Jan. 3.
