Must Hear : Collin Farrell
We remember Collin Farrell because he used to be super hot, then he epitomized trash, then got kind of hot again. Looks aside, we should always remember Collin Farrell for being an out-spoken defender of gay rights. In a recent statement issued in connection with his support of Irish LGBT group Belong To, Farrell remembered the childhood torment of his gay brother Eamon and urged an institutional shift in teaching tolerance, "Intolerance is not genetically encoded—it is taught. It is learned at home. It is learned in the classrooms and it is learned anywhere else we gather as a group," he continues. "Bullying is torture, it is another betrayal of basic human decency and its scars reach into the future of its survivors." Farrell's full statement can be found at the Belong To website.
