Washington D.C. [USA], Dec. 4 (ANI): Colin Farrell recently bonded with Hugh Grant during Season 5 of Variety and PBS' 'Actors on Actors' where they discussed their privacy and the roles they would prefer now. "It all went mad so fast for me. I had a period of maybe five or six years of incredible fame and recognizability," Farrell told Grant over the fact that, as they've gotten older, they've been more left alone. "I'm glad that period of madness is over for me and my life," he added. Grant, 56, replied, "I'm in the same kind of boat. I'm more left alone which I was, which is absolutely delightful." Then the duo moved on to have serious musing over what kind of projects they would be willing to take up at this point. The 'Noting Hill' star put forward a question, "Do you think acting is a kind of god in're trying to please your fellow actors. Or do you think it's just a tool for entertaining people?" Saying that this can be a "different thing" for actors as it is for the audience, Colin said, "If there is an experiential symbiosis between what the actor is experiencing in their own lives and what the audience is experiencing in purveying the work that the actor presents, I think that's the state of grace." Presented by 'The Venetian Las Vegas', the interview will debut in its entirety on PBS SoCal on January 3. (ANI)
