Did the Ask The Dust costars shared some kisses during the Golden Globes?
Oh, OK then. Uh, according to Celebitchy, young Irish rake Colin Farrell was spotted playing tonsil tennis with young Mexican temptress Salma Hayek during the Golden Globes. We're just kidding. Neither of them are really "young." But it doesn't change the fact that there is a rumor that they were kissing backstage during the award show.
Little did we know that they were rumored to have had an affair all the way back in 2004 while they were shooting a little film called Ask The Dust which no one ever saw (seriously, it did about $2 million at the box office, roughly equal to the first midnight viewing of Paul Blart: Mall Cop).
This is all highly irregular but no more irregular than Colin Farrell winning a Golden Globe. Is it possible that he's a good actor who just needs career-threatening failure and a good script to be motivated? After 2000's Tigerland, you'd have thought that he had a future of gold statuettes ahead of him. And then he decided to pay the bills with the bordering on irredeemable films Daredevil, SWAT, Alexander and Miami Vice (Note: some of us didn't hate Miami Vice and watch it over and over again). And along the way he starred in a handful of indies which were either meh, overacted or just off (Cassandra's Dream, A Home At The End Of The World and, evidently, Ask The Dust among them).
But now he's being rewarded by getting back to Tigerland by introducing an interesting, flawed character into a reasonably good, action-y story. Good work, Colin Farrell. In Bruges was pretty decent and we particulary enjoyed his character's rationale for not liking Bruges: "Ken, I grew up in Dublin. I love Dublin. If I grew up on a farm, and was retarded, Bruges might impress me but I didn't, so it doesn't."
Although Celebitchy's intel has Salma Hayek back with her on-again, off-again fiancé (Francois-Henri Pinault) we think this would be a great tryst. Like that time Lance Armstrong dated Sheryl Crow (or Kate Hudson for that matter), you think to yourself, "Hey, there's a nice couple, but there is no way on Todd's green Earth that this'll possibly last." At any rate, we're guessing it was just a little congratulatory make out. That's how things go down with when Irish-Mexican former costars want to say, "Good job, guy. You deserved that Golden Globe award, I've always thought you were incredibly talented but have been afraid that the excesses in your personal life, alcohol, drugs, Britney Spears, etc were going to do you in. Thank you for proving me wrong and restoring my faith in Hollywood, handsome men and hard work. Buenas tardes!" (Please imagine all of this being said with Salma Hayek's accent for full effect.)
