Colin Farrell has spoken of his horror at the allegations of sexual harassment and assault made against Harvey Weinstein, and his hope that changes will be made.
The actor, who will next be seen in dark drama The Killing Of A Sacred Deer, described the accounts of abuse as ‘atrocious’.
Arriving at the film’s premiere at the BFI London Film Festival, he told the Press Association: ‘It’s horrific, it’s just mad.
‘I’m just watching it unfold and then tearing myself away from it and realising the horribleness of it all and the wrongdoing, fundamentally, around the whole thing and just wish healing for everyone and that changes are made.
‘I hope anyone who was hurt that they have healing, it’s just atrocious really.’
In his new film, Farrell plays a surgeon and father to two children who is forced to make a horrific decision after inviting a teenage boy into his home.
The film, directed by Yorgos Lanthimos – who Farrell worked with on The Lobster, took its toll on the star.
