Colin Farrell loses lucky belt

Colin Farrell is reportedly offering a generous reward for the return of his lucky belt.

The Fright Night star was given the leather belt by his dad, former footballer Eamonn Farrell and is thought to have paid almost £3,000 having it repaired over the years.

Colin has lost the belt and according to The Sun is so keen to get it back he is considering making a wanted poster for it and offering a £16,000 reward for its safe return.

The 35-year-old actor has had extra holes punched in the belt and leather added to it as he has lost and gained weight over the years.

The In Bruges star is very proud of his dad, revealing in an interview in 2003, "I wish I'd have a f****** penny for every time I said to someone in a bar, 'My dad is Eamonn Farrell and he used to play for Shamrock Rovers.' "

He added: "I have a big scrapbook of newspaper clippings and his jersey with three shamrocks on the back in mothballs."

Colin is also very superstitious, admitting in 2004 that he wears the same boxer shorts - a present from his brother - whenever he starts work on a film.

He revealed they are "covered with shamrocks, and the waistband says, 'The luck of the Irish'."
