In January of this year, Colin Farrell was papped holding hands with his then-new girlfriend. In March he took her to see Adele in Ireland. At the time I mentioned that we didn’t know her name. We still don’t know her name. But they’re still together – stepping out this weekend in LA for some frozen yoghurt. Colin’s kept his sh-t so tight, I might say it’s been almost a year but it could be well over a year. Nobody knows and I’m not sure if anyone’s asked.
Colin is currently doing some press for Fantastic Beasts. Last week he was on Ellen and then Jimmy Kimmel, talking about baseball and American sports. While he doesn’t know much about baseball, apparently he’s quite familiar with football because he used to watch it back in Ireland when he was growing up. In particular he remembers the 1985 Chicago Bears …and the Super Bowl Shuffle! Do you remember the Super Bowl Shuffle? I loved the Super Bowl Shuffle. And I was obsessed with Jim McMahon. Obsessed like in the way a 12 year old humps her pillow. But, as Colin and Jimmy both point out, the Super Bowl Shuffle has not aged well. Back then it was cool, OK. If you weren’t alive at the time, I know, I know this is hard to believe. But we thought it was cool! Even Colin Farrell thought it was cool!
It is no longer cool. What kills me though is that the Super Bowl Shuffle has become SO uncool that Colin actually mentions his sex tape in an interview to illustrate just how uncool it is now.
