Colin Farrell -- St. Alexander?

9/13/2007 4:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Colin Farrell's known as a philandering, dirty-mouthed, Hollywood bad boy -- but this week, he spent around $10,000 on a homeless man.
Colin Farrell
Rewind to 2003 when a local radio station offered $2,000 to anyone who could get the swaggering lothario into the studios -- when a homeless guy known as "Stress" pulled off the incredible feat. On Tuesday, the same vagabond was outside Colin's hotel, with Farrell not only remembering him, but sweeping him into his car for a shopping spree!

According to the Toronto Sun, Farrell took the man to Europe Bound Travel Outfitters, telling workers there to "Get him anything he wants." Stress picked up a $500 jacket, a backpack filled with socks, underwear, boots and a sleeping bag. After shopping Colin then went to an ATM, took out "a wad of twenties" and arranged to pay the dude's rent for a year!

This dude rocks, so does the homeless dude, and I'm proud of Colin for actually doing something that is worthy to report. Good example.

That is a genuine act of charity and kindness. This overshadows all the crappy things he's know for.

I absolutely adore this man...bad boy image and all. Things like this make a person BEAUTIFUL, and rightly so. Not that his looks are lacking. God Bless You Collin.

Thats so awesome. What a good guy and asks for nothing in return. He could have given the guy $100 and send him on his way. Paying his rent and helping him stay off the street WOW. Im glad to see this "bad boy" help someone in need. Way to go Colin, your blessing will come back around to you.

That is really nice of Colin to do something like that for the poor old soul.. I wish more Hollywood people would give some of their fortunes instead of buying all the expensive crap they really don't need/ Colin keep up the great work!!!

tThe best thing about what he did is he also got Stress off the street, by setting him up in a rooming house for a year rent-free. Great way to give someone a hand-up v.s a hand-out .. way to go you drunken Irishman.. good on ya ...
