The 36-year-old actor Colin Farrell - who has had trouble with drug and drink addiction in the past - admits he is now a reformed character who loves to exercise and make the most of his life.
He said: "It's helped to stay away from the cocaine and the whiskey. Life moves in cycles. I'm not going to say there was a particular day or time when things changed, or even that I'm a different man.
"I enjoy the work more. I enjoy being a dad more. I enjoy doing things I never thought I'd enjoy, like yoga!
"Everything's by design, even if you think it's not. I can't say I sat down and said, 'Right, I am going to reinvest'. I know from talking to some friends and different people that it looks as though I've tried
to redesign my career but it's not really like that."
Now, Dubliner Colin listens to what people have to say more after seven or eight years of "chaos".
He added to the Observer magazine: "I am living with me more now. You can get caught up with everyone patting you on the back, and some people slagging you off. I am not saying I was ignored and that people didn't answer my phone calls, but it was chaos for seven or eight years."
