14 ENTERTAINMENT MONDAY JUNE 22 2015 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 Farrells past bit sketchy LOS ANGELES: Actor Colin Farrell says he was mistakenly taken into custody by police in Sydney while he was a teenager, on suspicion of attempted murder. The Irish star (pictured) was detained by police because he closely resembled a photo sketch of a suspect wanted for attempting to kill a man in an apartment fire. Farrell opened up about the incident during a game of True Confessions on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, admitting he was terrified because the sketch looked so much like him and he was drunk on the night in question. It was a long time ago and I was drunk ... I saw a photo-fit of the guy that actually did the crime and it looked remarkably like me and for a second because I had had a blackout that night I wondered, Could I have done such a thing?, he said. I was supposed to bring my mother to the airport, I was in Sydney, Australia, and I was pulled in by the cops, they showed me a photo-fit, a pencil sketch of the guy that had attempted to murder this other gentleman had beat him up and left him in his own apartment, set the apartment on fire and split (left), thereby leaving the guy to burn to death and it was me. They said, What do you think about that picture? And I went, I think Im in trouble. It was terrifying. However, Farrell was eventually released without charge after a friend confirmed the actor had an alibi. I was (with the police) for about six hours, he said. Fry still on honeymoon LONDON: Stephen Fry says he is still in the honeymoon phase after his marriage to 27year-old partner Elliot Spencer and says the pair have talked about becoming parents. The 57-year-old, who tied the knot with stand-up comic Spencer in January, said on BBC radio he was adoring marriage. Im still very much in the honeymoon phase. Its bliss, I do carry a ridiculous beam on my face, he said. When asked if the couple would like to bring up children he said: We sort of talk about it. But we better get on with it if we do. Film keen to bond Bonds LONDON: Five former James Bond stars are being wooed to bring them together for an ensemble action movie. Former 007 actor Sir Roger Moore has revealed that movie chiefs are trying to line him up alongside 84-year-old Sir Sean Connery, George Lazenby, 75, Timothy Dalton, 71 and 62year-old Pierce Brosnan. Moore, 87, insists hes keen to sign up, but Connery is proving more difficult. Id be up for (the movie). But Sean baulked at the idea as I dont think he wants to be associated with Bond anymore, Moore told The Sun newspaper. Shane Warne has been on a couple of dates since downloading the app LONDON: Shane Warne has joined Tinder but claims women on the dating app believe he is impersonating himself. The former Australian Test cricketer who was engaged to actress Elizabeth Hurley until they split in December 2013 said he has been on a couple of dates since downloading the app. Describing himself as currently very, very, very single, the 45-year-old told The Times Magazine: One was horrific. One was OK. He added: People say, Why are you trying to impersonate Shane Warne? I go, OK, yeah, I am. And then they go, No! Its really you! And you go, OK, it is. And then they go, No, its not! So Im on there for the fun value. Asked if he was open to falling in love again, Warne said: Im not looking for it. But if it happens, it happens. Ive got three wonderful kids; Im having fun; I dont feel like I need it. But it gets quite lonely at times. When you travel all the time.
