While promoting his new film, The Beguiled, Colin Farrell was offered a chance by Ellen to earn up to $10,000 for a charity of his choice if he told a sufficiently embarrassing story in her segment called "Celebrity Confessions."
Of course, Farrell had a story at the ready about his nude scenes in Joel Schumacher's Tigerland. Before he went to shoot his scene he approached Schumacher in a bathrobe and flashes his "retro bush." Unfortunately his nerves got the best of him after he borrowed a beard trimmer from hair and makeup (TBD whether they reused said beard trimmer) and he ended up with a pinky-width landing strip.
Farrell's film, The Beguiled (which also stars Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning) opens June 23 and sees Farrell playing a recovering Union soldier at a girl's school in Virginia during the American Civil War. But being sheltered from the outside world and the war causes sexual tension, intrigue, rivalries, and a dramatic turn. Watch the trailer, below.
