Farrell wished to play football like dad

Irish actor Colin Farrell says he wanted to be a football player like his father Eamon Farrell.
The actor’s father was a professional player with Shamrock Rovers in his native Ireland. Farrell, 36, is known for his work in movies like Minority Report and Total Recall and could not fit into the role of a sportsperson.

‘I wanted to be a footballer, but I wasn’t good enough. Certainly, when I was 13 or 14, I knew for sure that I'd dropped the ball, so to speak,’ quoted Farrell as saying.

‘I mean, my dad was kicking a punctured tennis ball up against the wall in his back garden from the time he was four, on his own, six hours a day,’ he added.
