Movie star Colin Farrell insists he can retire tomorrow because he has made enough cash to support his family and ensure his son James will never have to work.

The Irishman has been careful with the money he has amassed from films like Alexander, Minority Report and The Recruit and he's now very wealthy.

And he says, "I have very few desires from the material world. My son is fine. He never has to work a day in his life - not that I want him to be too aware of that, because he might end up being a lazy bastard.

"And if anyone in my family gets sick, I can make sure they've got the best medical attention money can buy.

"Things like that are nice to be able to do for your loved ones."
