Colin Farrell treated for dependence on medication

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Irish actor Colin Farrell has been
admitted to a treatment center for exhaustion and an addiction
to prescription drugs, his spokeswoman said on Monday.

Publicist Danica Smith said in a statement that Farrell,
29, the star of "Alexander" and "Phone Booth," had completed
filming his new movie "Miami Vice" but declined to provide any
other details.

"We ask that the press respect the privacy of Mr. Farrell
and his family," she said.
