By on

Four years ago, a radio station in Toronto offered $2000 to anyone who could bring Colin Farrell, who was in town filming A Home At The End Of The World, into their station. The actor himself heard of this contest, and decided to turn himself in – after finding a homeless man to collect the prize.

Farrell was in Toronto again last month, and met the homeless man once more while signing autographs. The pair greeted each other with a hug, and Colin whisked the man, known as Stress, away to Europe Bound Travel Outfitters. Once there the big-hearted A-lister announced, “Get him anything he wants.”

Stress and Colin chose a coat, a down sleeping bag and a rolling backpack stuffed with socks, boots and underwear. But Stress won’t be using that sleeping bag on the street. After shopping, Farrell arranged one year’s accommodation for the now formerly-homeless man, and gave him a wad of money from the nearest ATM to help him get started.

“I’m all set up,” says Stress, a tad frazzled. “This is my chance to get off the street.”
