Colin Farrell offers £16,000 reward for safe return of ‘lucky belt’

Colin Farrell has lost his lucky belt and is reportedly offering a generous reward to anyone who finds and returns it.

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

According to The Sun, Colin 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’.”
