With Colin Farrell making his latest film appearance at the awards shows, now is as good a time as any to repost an old video that resurfaced last year.

Farrell, 46, has been praised for his role Banshees of Inisherin. The beautiful star was born in Dublin in 1976. As a teenager in the 1990s, he unsuccessfully auditioned to become a member of Irish boy band Boyzone and modelled.

In 1994, one job involved modeling a thong for an Irish daytime TV show at the age of 18. This clip was recently discovered on an old VHS tape. The Irish Sun shared the clip.

Banshees of Inisherin sees Farrell re-teaming with director Martin McDonagh, with whom he has worked with award-winning success in Bruges.
